    We have a Swift Sundance 630G on a Ducato 130 Mjet
    Under the passenger seat behind a grill i found a round switch. When you turn it there's a click like an electrical contact.

    Bit wary of it so not played with it.

    Any clues?

    When you say battery kill switch, which one and what effect would it have?

    Technical desert.

    if it was an ignition inhibit it would prevent the engine starting

    Are you sure it is a switch, what I am seeing is the lock for one of the plastic covers or tool box. At least that's what it is on mine.

    Mystery solved. It did nothing more than release the tool box!

    Ah, but if you had a nasty Chinese gentleman sat next to you and you pressed and turned it the other way......

    If I was a Motorhome Manufacturer, I'd put lots of odd switches around the place, in very obscure places, just to windup the customers. Oh, hang on, they already do !!

    As I've mentioned elsewhere, ours contains a heater - plumbed into the cooling system - that blows hot air into the hab area.
