What is this?

My Argosy has a little light looking thing on the left rear corner. It is about as big around as a nickel. It is plastic and pertrudes about 1/4 inch. It doesn't light up, but I'm not sure if its supposed to. It is finished to look like a cheap toddler's jewel. Does anyone know what it is? Thanks.

I believe it is a warning light of sorts to indicate reversed poliarty when plugged into shore power?.....SAM

It sounds like a little automotive indicator light that a prior owner installed possibly to show on the outside that something was left on. What color is the jewel part? Have you tried easy the thing out? If it's the kind of light that I'm thinking of, it should pop out. Post a photo of if you can.

That is the reverse polarity indicator that all Argosy's have just too the right of the battery box.

It would indicate that the outlet you plug into is incorrectly wired. That's why it is at that corner of your Argosy. If the hot wire is reversed it would mean your Argosy shell and frame are HOT and touching could electrocute you. I've not seen that but campgrounds sometimes are DIY affairs...

It is indeed a reverse polarity indicator. Ours is located in that exact same location. It is NOT next to the battery box. Not lit is correct and good. Prying it out is probably a bad idea. It can be accessed from a work box inside the rear cover on our Minuet.
