Hello, I am Randall Sorry for the delay. Do you still need help with this question?

I do

Ok, you do have switches in a different location for water pump? HW heater? etc? I am just asking as each RV is different. I too own a Damon Challenger so I am very familiar with them.

Sir, I finally had a chance to check out the the switches and none was not able to get any of them to work. There is not a motor on the steps. Thanks again for you help. Hopefully we can keep trying.

do you have an outside light? I think you said you did by door. I know near 100% one switch is for that light, Did you find a panel for water pump. Water heater? etc? did you turn every light in the Rv and then try one of the switches to be sure some tuned off with the switch by the door

The middle switch does control the outside light. Still can’t figure the red switch (with light in switch) and the first switch control. The red switch is the last in the row as you enter the trailer.
Customer reply replied 28 days ago
Evening Randy, the first switch goes to the overhead light behind the cab area. The second switch turns the outside light off and on. All that is left is the red switch. I noticed on my first post I stated that it was a ‘95 it’s a ‘94. I have found one electric receptacle that is not hot. It’s the one above the sink. Any suggestions? Thanks again and have a good evening.

Sorry for the delay. odd as red with light inside is usually somehting that is done to warn you of something. Are we sure it is not the water pump? did you find another water pump switch?

there is another water pump switch. Could it be a propane emergency switch?

I personally have never seen that and I own a Damon so kind of leaning to no. If no power steps. some other options are. it may? have had a power step OR I forgot one switch at door in mine are the basement/cargo lights. I am going to contact a group of RV owners shortly and see if they have the same. Last option would be a switch to switch over to electric HW heater. You may? have one but usually not in Rv that old even mine does not have that. Let me reach out to my group and ask. I will get back with you as soon as I can with any information

Appreciate all your help. Any suggestions on the electrical outlet?
Customer reply replied 28 days ago
K will do

outlet? would not be related to the red switch as that is 12 volts only so.. you may? have a GFI outlet in the Rv somehwre that needs reset or be sure all breakers are on

Ask Your Own Car Question
Customer reply replied 28 days ago

I’m at my wits end on this red rocker switch that is on the steps going into my motorhome. I had one guy tell me it was the battery disconnect but it wasn’t. I’m don’t going to give up. I’ll keep on looking. Thanks
Customer reply replied 24 days ago
Damn you are so smart and I’m so stupid. You told me to check for cargo lights and I did I thought. I was out there last night trying to figure out what that switch went to. I just happened to glance at one of the compartments and BINGO there was a light on. Like I said you are so smart. And I’m so stupid. Thanks again for all your advice. I’m sure you will be hearing from me again. Have a good and know that you helped a Donna Okie from Muskogee out.
