Switch function

We just bought a 2015 Bungalow 40FER not quite a month ago and we can't determine what one on of the switches operate. Its the large rocker switch by the kitchen counter on the back wall-it looks like one of the fan switches but doesn't operate the fan. We've looked in all the manuals and we can't find anything that gives us a clue as to what it operates. Does anyone have any idea what that particular switch operates? Thanks in advance for any help you might provide. We're going crazy trying to figure this out.

Welcome. If a residential size then most likely it is the fan that only operates on 110V. You must be plugged in for it to operate.

If it is a smaller rocker lower to the floor these usually operate lights upon entry or exit.

We live in the Bungalow so we're already plugged in. We thought there may have been two fan switches for the living room fan-one in the living room and another in the kitchen. Seems like only the switch in the living room operates that fan. It's a residential size rocker switch. The switch is mid chest level on the wall behind the counter (near the end of the counter closet to the sliding glass door), next to an electric wall outlet.

We thought that to at first. The only outlet near it is the one next to it and we tested the switch for outlet use. Its almost like its a dead switch but that doesn't really make sense. We even thought it might be a three way fan switch but we tried that too with zero results. Its really a mystery.

No we didn't! Didn't think of that actually. Will test that and let everyone know what the results are.

Unfortunately a no go on that suggestion nbhybrid. Doesn't appear the switch is wired into the outside plug.

Have you checked all of the bulbs to be sure lights work? Had a switch I couldn't figure out for the longest time so finally called the dealer. Turns out it was a "dump station" light, but it didn't/doesn't work which is why I couldn't figure it out.
