Power switches

I have a 2003 Dutchmen Colorado 35 rl fifth wheel. In the kitchen area I have a series of different controls. One is the monitor for the tanks and battery level with the pump switch. Then there is a switch for the water tank that says Atwood and lights when turned on then there is a switch the size of a wall plate that lights when tured on. Does anyone know what this switch is for? I have no manuals. Thank you

I suspect the one labeled Atwood is for the water heater. Do you have an outside "scare light"? If so, there should be a switch to turn it on.

Agree with the Atwood switch.
If your fifth wheel only has 30 amp service, the other switch possibly is a selector switch for either air conditioner or microwave use. Many campers have a selector switch installed preventing using both big draw appliances at the same time, keeping you under the 30 amp input.

Not a scare light switch. The Atwood marked switch is for the water heater the pump switch is located on the control panel. This is a separate switch on the same wall but itís the size of a light switch with a indicator light. I believe I have a 50 amp system. I will have to post a pic this weekend
