Brought our 36FL home this past weekend. While doing the PDI and orientation, we tried to figure out the purpose of a bathroom wall switch. I believe there are four switches on the plate. This switch is the first one on the left. It doesn't do anything that I can determine. The dealer thought it might be the switch for an electric ceiling fan (which we do not have). However, the kitchen ceiling fan has its own control panel so I'm skeptical that the dealer is correct. Any ideas? Thanks.

We had a similar experience, but with the bank of 4 switches located between the kitchen and living room. On further thought I believe they could be the switch for the external lights above each door.

We have 3 switches in our bathroom. 1 is for the bath room light, one is for the whit porch light and the other is for the amber porch light. When we got our FL the amber light was not connected properly. Our dealer fixed the problem

On our switch plate the two right switches are for the amber and white porch lights, the third switch from the right is the bathroom light and then there's the fourth...still a mystery.

If you pull out the switch, are their wires? I've found they add the switches for extra options like additional awnings, whether you have them or not. At least what I can see.

Our 36RE has two switches in the bathroom. One for the light, the other for the water pump.

Good idea...I'll check.

Update...the switch is wired. It turns out that the bathroom exhaust fan's push button switch was in the off position. Turned it on and the wall switch now operates the fan. Unfortunately, since I'm not 7' tall, I'm unable to open the fan vent cover so I'm kinda' back at square one. Either I install a Maxxair fan or a vent cover. Clearly, this is an engineering/design oversight.

Cool, it clears up the mystery.



By chance was there a reach rod stashed somewhere? I had a Cardinal once that had a reach rod in the closet that you used to open the bathroom vent.
