I am restoring a 1986 champion telstar and would like to know if there is anyone that owns one or has owned one that may know what the red rocker switch that is mounted next to the rear bed area on the outside of the shower area may go to ? I have traced it up to the rear area behind the refrigerator and further to the control level indicator panel. From there it goes to the headliner area with other wires. It lights and sends 12 volts DC when switched on. So far i haven't been able to determine anything that it activates/powers when switched on. Have any Info?

Do you have the indirect (hidden) flourscent lamps above the storage cabinets.  Perhaps it could be to these if the bulbs were all bad.  Ours had three out of 4 bad bulbs when we got it.  We may not have realized that the lights were there if not for the one good lamp.
