On our 1993 Breakaway, can anyone identify what this swtich in the bathroom is used for. Doesn’t light up in either position, but my guess would be tank heaters. Not sure if coach has them...maybe this is just a pre wired switch for it?

Is it to the right as you enter the bath. I suspect you are correct.

PO of Dbarth told me that is what mine was. When I looked there were no tank heaters but the light lit. When I replaced the floor I found the wires coiled up by the toilet under the floor.

Yes, to the right as you enter the bathroom is the location of the switch. Now, I do see wiring on my fuse panel under the bedroom, saying Tank Heat Blankets. Crawling under the coach, I can't see any sign of those tanks having heat blankets.

The switch can also be for the hot water tank 110 volt water heater element. There are few switches in a Barth that operate only when connected to shore power. I can only think of the water heater switch in my Barth. You could include the microwave switch and the blender switch, although they are appliances that remain plugged in.

I agree with Dana. It’s either that or the ejection seat button.
