Exterior Comp. Lts. Switch, What does it do?

I have been playing with the Exterior Comp. Lts. switch on my 1984 Airstream MoHo and I canít figure out what is does. Can anyone help?

FYI: the upper exterior marker lights are not working, maybe related?

Is there a compartment with access from the exterior?

Thanks for posting. I just figured out what that switch is . Exterior compartment lights. I wondered how to make those light come on.
Question to all . What makes those two side angled lights on the pass side, come one.
2 new question, any ideas for loosing that antenna set upon the roof. Mine is broke, and it's totally 1950 s tech. Do ya even need that set up anymore?
3 rd question, how come my radio doesn't t work when the unit is running. This thing had the original radio with a cassette player. I got a lot of cassettes. Cool eh? The beach boys greatest hits, the Eagles. And.... The outlaws. Green grass and high titles. So 70 s so cool. Road trip music... Can't wait to take the silver pig out. DJ

Remember, keep your wheels polished. It ain't cool if your chrome don't shine.
The wheels....are the heels everybody loves 6 inch heels.

Those angled lights on the passenger side are your "docking lamps". Should have a switch on your dash somewhere.

How are those window plastic channel clips coming?

Per Mare, Per Terram and may all your campaigns be successful.

Docking lights switch on my coach is by the door for perm switched on. Otherwise the comp light switch should put those docking lights on along with the lpg light and a couple of other exteriors

Thanks guys,
Two mysteries solved.
I'm calling my guy today, concerning the status of our window channels. I'll let y'all know.
Is the roof antana worth replacing? Or should I just block er off.

The roof antenna may be worth keeping if it is for a Car Phone. You can replace the monopole antenna with a dipole antenna and then hook up a cell phone booster to it so you can have good signal at all times signal is to be had.
