    Can anyone help please . Have just got our first motorhome after 3 years of looking round . Got a 2005 chieftain and after several hours trying all the switches , knobs & buttons , think we have finally grasped most of it . However ther is one switch which we dont know what it does . On the left as You go in the door there is a switch panel . One switch operates the electric step but there is also a large , square switch about 40mm square , with a small green light in the centre . Can anyone give us a clue please . Thanks for any ideas

    hi wily,

    have a look at this thread along the same lines.
    loads of suggestions......i would opt for the outside light theory.

    Thanks

    Thanks PappaJohn , Think the heater one is the most likely , though judging by the other thread it could be one of several options . Will have another play !

    Hi
    I have a 2006 Autotrail Scout with the same switch set up. On mine the big switch with the green light on is the switch for iluminating the area where the lesuire batteries are stored just to the left of the habitation door.

    Like you it took me weeks to work it out.

    It's the dilithium crystal de-ioniser switch, and must NOT be touched by anyone who does not hold a 10348466/hht7/bbbc/L licence
