extend/retract buttons in storage bay(curbside)

we have a 2013 RL and two extend/retract buttons on the wall in the storage bay curbside, they are under a hard plastic like shield to prevent mistaken pushing I assume. We can't figure our what they extend or retract, nothing happens when we engage. Any ideas? Are they there to add something, but what?
Looked at every manual I have with no luck, dealer was Camping Work, go figure they know nothing.
Thanks so much,

They originally controlled the awnings. The plastic cover was a re-work by RW after things moved in the basement area causing the awning to deploy.
If your's don't do anything, the previous owner may have disconnected them. I used those switches all the time on our '12 36RL because I could watch that they were deploying or retracting properly.

I think at least one member on here had that happen.

Similar issue with switches

In our closet we have the switch panel that operates slides and the awning. What would the separate switch be used for that says " extend and retract"? I cannot find anything that it operates.
Thanks
Scott

We have 2 buttons in our basement storage area nearest to the door side. On our 2012 36RL these control our double awnings. Nice to be able to control them from the outside without having to go inside. These were covered by a plastic cover with a Velcro like strip around the perimeter. This was done as part of a recall by redwood because cargo could shift while redwood was in motion and open the awnings while driving. Later they used hinged covers like exterior gfci covers.

That extend/retract switch is for a second awning on the slideout on the rear passenger side. If you look closely at the upper right of the slide wall outside, you will see a receptacle where the optional slide awning would plug in. I believe the 2nd awning was an option at least in our year 36RL. Ours came with both.

Great insight

We have the 2 buttons (with the cover) on our and only one main awning. I too was scratching my head on what that second switch controlled.

If you still have the RL I would love to see the second power awning.

That switch is for your 2nd awning if you have on your dinette slide but if no awning then you just have a plug out on exterior wall of that slide for future awning
