What are these switches for??

Hi, as I have only owned my Barth for about 6 week, most of the time has been spent cleaning and updating the interior. I have two separate questions. I have 4 light switches on the wall at the door. I know the far right and far left switches are for the steps and the hall lights, but I cannot figure out what the two center switches are for.

second question. I want to post several pictures of my progress, but I cannot figure out how to post more than 1 picture per post.

any info would be greatly appreciated....also I really upset with John Deere for not putting an access panel at the driver's feet so a guy can easily remove the Master Cylinder. I only took me about 5 hours... I have no idea how im going to add fluid when the time comes, it sits too high up to see the fluid level when attacking it from the wheel well, which is the only way to get to it...Thanks John Deere.

The other switches may be for the outside "patio" lights? They were on my 86 Regal.

I would be very tempted to cut a hole in the floor to service the master cylinder. I did so on my 86 Regal when I had to access the top of the fuel tanks to replace fuel pumps and hoses.

As for photos, you are correct. The current site software allows for only one photo attachment per post. Go ahead and use a post for each photo. Just use a sentence to describe the photo and attach it to the post. If they are not sized or rotated properly I will gladly fix them. We all enjoy member's photos!

Out of the 4 switches by my door.

One is step light
One is lighted translucent exterior handle. (Light May be burnt out! If so replace with LED) It is in the bracket at the top if I remember correctly! I even have it working in my 72.
One is hall or aisle.
One is electric step.

That is what they were also in my 94 Aristocrat/Breakaway. Both had electric step.

Hope this helps.

John Deere chassis you are on your own with no help from me.

So you have an electric step? And the one switch is for that? The light goes on when the step extends?

Mine has a separate switch for each.

Otherwise I’m with Steve as possibly the patio light(exterior light)?

My coach has a switch near the entry to turn on/off the 12 volt power throughout the coach via the 12V master solenoid. The solenoid is located in the "electrical stuff area" at the foot of the rear bed.
