Baffled me on my 3200 for a while then found out that it controlled the outside LED lights under my awning.

Have you figured the switch out yet? Or are we going to leave this one as one of life's little mysteries?

How about the lights under your steps, those are hard to see you sometimes in the daylight.

I have a switch in the panel.for the step lights as well as the work light. I'm baffled. (It doesn't take much)

Do you have any lights that are not working? Could have a bulb burned out. My remote says it controls a light, took me a while and some help from this forum to find out that the socket was bad.

Perhaps it was pre wired for awning lights like the others have, or maybe the lights were removed.

Mine does not have a switch there, and I did not have awning lights when I got the rig.

For me, I have three switches their. I was told that they run the tank heaters. Im still not sure which switches work which tanks. Also why is there only three tank heaters when I have 4 holding tanks (1 fresh, 2 gray, 1 black tank). I would suggest watching the amp gauge and seeing how much it changes the draw. When I throw all three switch it barely makes a difference to the amp gauge. Maybe .5 amps.

I have a 2016 3200 as well. I was told the tank heater switches (from left to right) are:

Fresh | Black/Bath Grey | Kitchen Grey

But I have not personally verified this...
