Unmarked Switches

Can anyone give me an idea what the unmarked blue lit switch does? 2018 HC 330RL...the one to the right of it is for the hall light, which seems goofy to put the hall light switch it there...but not as goofy as the Hitch light switch being in there!

There is a switch marked "Living Room" that turns on some of the ceiling lights, the rest are on a wall switch....I would like to hear their reasoning for some of this stuff! I will check to see if there is other lights in the Living area that I am missing. Thanks!

Well - another PDI not complete just like mine - I'm betting they are for some outside lights. I waited till dark and had the DW flip the switches. Found:
1 - LED light on Awning
2 - Scare light
3 - under coach blue LED lights
4 - nose light by hitch

Let me know if find those

Is there a bigger switch for ceiling fan?

Is there a door that closes over those? One guy removed the door, said it saved his head.

FYI

Our 375FL has some labeled switches, and some mystery switches. We also discovered what some were for as our friends left in the evening (dark).... found the blue lights and the hitch light switches!!!

Will have to check for the blue lights...I am guessing they are underneath, outside? I will check in a little bit...13 degrees...gotta work up to going back out!
Ceiling fan is a separate "typical" 120v rocker switch.

And your friends leaving just made the inside "Hitch light" make some sense....its not for hooking up, it's for not hitting your head on it.

Dang! no blue lights...or ANY lights for that matter. (Checked everywhere, in the dark.)
99% sure I am going to remove that door, though!
Will wait for cpaulson...congratulations BTW!

I don't want to sound like I am running down Keystone BUT would it be too much to ask them to label these switches at the factory!!!!! Every other industry is at least good about labeling the switches and many even include pictures in their owners manuals. This is just such an obvious thing to do. I REALLY DON"T UNDERSTAND WHY THEY DON"T LABEL THE SWITCHES, ALL THE SWITCHES! If it is a spare, fine just LABEL it spare. Please someone put some pressure on Keystone on this subject!!!!!

Congratulations!

Just got ours today......still working thru some things......the switch(unmarked) lights up the eyebrow lights and the strip on top of the front cap. Still looking to see what the other one does.

Thanks! I don't know how I would have missed that...but I dont remember ever seeing those lights on. Will check again. The other unmarked switch (3rd from left) is the hallway light, on ours.

We just got the 331RL and that switch for us was the amber lights that are on the front of the RV along the edge at the top and the edges down the front. They are LED lights but an amber color. It was a search and find - I flipped them on and off as my husband went from side to side to identify what it did

I took our label maker and marked them. I agree they should mark them all not just part of them.
