Ridiculous Question?

Hello, In the process of tuning up all my lighting fixtures.circuits and converting to all LEDs I have owned this coach (02 Journey DL) for 5 years and in all those years I have never discovered what one of the console switched operates. It sits between the electric mirror controls and the HWH Leveling controls. When the switch is engaged it lights up (w ign or acc modes) with a typical green (on) indicator. However, I have yet to discover just exactly what this thing controls/turns on. I have spent considerable time perusing the manual and it seems to address EVERY OTHER SWITCH but this one. I have attempted to attache a photo . It sits above the fold down cup holder shown and in between the mirror and leveling controls. I hope it makes it onto the post.
Whatever it is, I must surely not need it or I wouldn't have waited 5 years to investigate. However, it IS driving somewhat batty. Can anyone identify for me what this gadget is for?? Thanks if you can.

Side mirror heater.

Of course you realize this info has been in your Operator’s Manual all this time… yes?

Heated mirrow perhaps? Seems where I might put a switch for that!
Alsomight need a light to tell you it is on as it would certainly be hardto spot if the mirrows were warm or not?

Well, I did say it might be a ridiculous question. And in 5 years, I've never had a need for heated mirrors on my mh. Or any other mh. Or any other vehicle. And I lived in Northern PA. Might be a good thing to have a label since every other switch is labeled. And my bad, I never read the section on how the mirror adj worked. Because I knew how to operate it. What fascinated me was pictures of the switch in the manual without an identifier.

Well, now I know. Thanks.

Hopefully, the only time you might need heated mirrors was running away from bad weather, never running towards it!!! The heat can also help if you have condensation on your mirrors.

Relax, no such thing as a ridiculous question. Glad you got it sorted out. I am still wondering how to get my replacement flat-screen TV to play thru my surround system. There are some threads here about that, just a bit lower on my to/do list right now.

Just remember that if it was simple, the powers that be would have somebody else do it!
