switch inside right hand of door

I have a 69 safari 23, and the swithch inside the door on the right side does not seem to do anything. It is not the scare light,, that switchis farhter down the wall, past the window. I checked, no voltage, so I am stumped.
could it be for an overhead fixture? both the fixtures work of their own switches, and so does the vent fan. can somebody tell me what it is supposed to be ? thanks, and hope the group has a happy 4th..we are free but it did not come easily, remember the fallen.. Richard collier

on our 1970 it controls the overhead lite to the left of the door going in the trailer. But there are two switches and the other in the outside over the door. The overhead lite also has it's own switch also. Maybe?

Mine does not seem to control the light,. Either the switch is bad, or the wires are not connected.. I am not getting voltage to the switch that I can tell, so it is frustrating. I know it is supposed to do something.. thanks, richard

Not sure about the Safari, but it should turn on/off the galley light (maybe the overhead in Safari's case) The idea is you can turn in an interior light before you enter.

This particular switch reminds me of a story about my 56 Caddy. The gas cap is under the tail light. It was great fun back in the good old full service days to watch some high school pump jockey through my mirrors trying to find the cap.

In our 70'model...there are two switches side by side. The one closest to the door controls the 'over the door' outside light. The other--if you go ahead and turn on the overhead light above the fridge, on the ceiling pick four lights or just one, and that second switch will control that light on the ceiling just as the former poster said. Good Luck figuring it out. Bill
