Two switches next to door?

Im a rewiring my 1970 Safari and Im trying figure what all is connected to the two switches on the interior wall adjacent to the door. I know one operates the porch light above the door. Does the other operate all of the ceiling lights, some of the lights and fans?

Thanks for the help!

Ones for the porch light above the door and the other is for the scare light. The round light to the right of the door window. At least thats what they are on my 1973 safari.

On my 75 Overlander, one switch operates the "porch", or exterior step light, and the other operates the light fixture over the sink in the galley. The sink light fixture has it's own switch on the side, so it could inactivate the switch by the door.

Different years and models means different switch configurations.
