2018 3120rl elect. switch

Perhaps a silly question: on the electrical switch panel in our 3120rl, there is a larger residential-looking switch. The owners manual tells me nothing. The switch appears to do nothing that I can determine. It isnít labeled like the rest of the smaller switches in the panel. Anyone know what itís supposed to control?

That switch on my unit sends power to the ceiling fan. Turn in on and pull the fan chains if you have one

Same rig as yours. It took me 3 months to discover the use of the second switch on the side of that cabinet, facing the entry door. One switch controls the over sink pendant light but I, and several friends, and the dealer had no idea what it was for. We tested everything we could think of. Finally contacted a Monty rep who didn't know either but called the factory. Of course it was for the pantry light which can't be seen with the door closed. Gotta love the "engineer" who decided the entryway was the proper site for placement of a pantry light switch.

Switches all over the unit aren’t in convenient or logical places! And yep, the pantry light is/was a puzzler! My favorite though is trying to find my way into the bedroom in the dark!

We installed 12 volt LED rope lights under the island countertop. Got the power from propane detector. Gives enough light to walk around but not bright enough to bother sleeping.

We have battery operated motion sensing lights in key spots. Get up to use the bathroom or go down the steps and lights come on. They go off after 30 seconds or so of no movement. They work great and don't use any battery power when boondocking.
