Orientation questions about 27DSRL

We just purchased a 2015 27DSRL and the salesman went through the orientation very quickly because he had another customer coming. After we got home and had a chance to go through the trailer on our own we had a few questions I thought the group would be able to answer for us. First, when you walk in the rear door there is a small cabinet on the right that houses several switches. Three of these are small rocker switches. One is for the main interior lights, and another turns on the led lights next to the awning and the light over the steps. Does anyone know what the third switch controls? In the off position I can't find anything that doesn't work and in the on position I don't notice anything going on.
My second question is about the dump station light. I'm assuming we have one because it seems to be part of the "Utility Light Package" which includes the awning lights, the step light, a storage area light, and this dump station light. I've found all the other lights except for the dump station light.

Thank you for any help you can give me. I appreciate it.

I believe the switch you are referring to controls an amber light outside on the "slide side."
Not sure about the dump station light.
We were halfway through our PDI on our 2015 27DSRL 2 weeks ago when it was discovered that the furnace didn't work correctly. Now we're waiting for the repair and then we will insist on doing another, although shorter PDI.
The fellow who escorted us through the PDI insisted that everything we were asking about had been checked and found to be working. In other words he wanted to finish with us so he could get on to his next guest. Finding the furnace was faulty was not part of HIS plan. However it gives us a justifiable reason to insist that our PDI is thorough. In the meantime, the dealer doesn't get paid until we sign off on the unit, and I don't have to deal with storing it until we start using it.

Jeff, I think the third switch may be your rear 'porch' light. I didn't know what that switch did until I looked out at the camper one night and noticed a light was on in back of our camper. Then I figured out that is was that switch. Not sure if that is considered a dump station light but on ours, it does help light up that area.

This is for anyone going thru a PDI!

If the dealer does not have time to do it properly, Please tell them you will come back when it is convenient for them and you will sign the paperwork after it is completed to your satisfaction.

They have even less time for you after you have signed and left.

Thanks for the responses. You guys were both correct. On the driver's side of the trailer way up high is an amber light that looks like a porch light. That answers both of my questions. The switch operates that light which shines down on the dump station area. I was looking lower nearer to the actual dump valves for the light. I'll need to label those switches just to keep them straight. Thanks again for all your help.

We just got our 27DSRL a couple of weeks ago and yes, regarding that 3rd switch at the console, that is the "Dump Station" Amber light on the driver side by the Black/Grey Tanks. I'm trying to figure out the hot water switches now. Different post though, I will not "hijack" this one for that question. Happy Trails to you!

When we picked ours up last fall, we struggled with the same switch. It was really hard because the switch wouldn't turn that light on (bad bulb or something).
