Switches beside camper door

Somewhere along the way I realized I didn't know what one of those switches were for or if I ever knew. On the cabinet wall near the door, there is a single switch and then two switches. The two switches control the awning lights and the inside lights. What does the other switch do?
I wish that switch controlled the light under the step but it seems that works on the same one as the awning lights. I thought maybe it controlled the big light on the street side of the camper as though it might be a dump light but it doesn't come on when I turn that switch on although I guess it could be burned out. Anyone know with that switch does ?

Switches beside camper door

Could be a master switch for the ceiling lights. I have one there that when left on, you can control all the ceiling lights with the individual switches on each light. With the master switch off, the individual switches on the fixtures do nothing. Or, In my rig, there is also a separate switch there for the 2 lights on the ceiling in front of the sink

Your model, and possibly a picture would be a great help!

In mine that single switch controls the outside utility light out above the water and sewer hookups

My switch was not labeled, took me a bit to find it, on the driver side over the water/electric connections

Is it the light on the side by the water and sewer hook up? We could not figure out one switch and this is what is was.

I think like you said, it is a "work" light over the sewer hook ups. With the stepstool I have, I can't reach it so when I get home I will get a ladder and change out the bulb. But enough of you have concurred that you have one operated by a switch inside so I feel satisfied and I will check that out before I keep looking. It's just funny to me that I have had this camper a year and a half and just realized I didn't know what it went to! Thanks for the feedback!
( I have a 21 FBS and unfortunately, I have never figured out how to put a picture here so I need to look at doing that for future

It's sort of sad that they don't label anything nor have any pictures anywhere in their stuff for each camper as to what the switches are. Even a "quick reference guide" for each specific camper would not be that big a deal for them to do
