    I have a 2009 Autotrail Cheyenne 840d.

    There is a small switch next to the forward offside spot light in the saloon. Looks like a light switch but I cannot work out what it does. The spot
    lights have integral switches so not that.

    Looks original.

    Any one know?

    Regards

    Thanks for your reply.

    The awning light switch is on the control panel above the habitation door.

    No pir either.

    Reminds me of a joke by the genius comedian Steven Wright...

    "I have a mystery switch in the bedroom of my new apartment.

    Before going to sleep I flick it on and off a few times.

    Just got a call from a guy in Las Vegas.

    He said,

    'Hey! Can you stop doing that...' "


    JJ :Cool:

    A similarly placed switch on my Autotrail Chieftain is for the 240v lights at the front of the lounge area, so unless on hookup it won't do anything.

    on our Comanche it switches on a strip of LED lights under the step to the rear. About as much use as a chocolate T pot!!

    I have a switch I don't know what it is for, too. I think it is for the alarm to the bike rack once I work out how to use it.. but not certain. Do you have a bike rack alarm?
