switch info 2000 chieftain 36L

Hello, my name is Virgil. I recently bought a 2000 chieftain 36L, learning as i go, but I can not figure out what the two switches are for by the couch just above the cup holder. Can anyone help me identify what these are?

Looking at a drawing can be a mixed bag as it can give good info ---or totally miss the mark.
Best to have both the drawing and RV to look over but this may help if it fits?
On this drawing:

I see two switches next to the couch. Are they the correct ones? If so these snips of the drawing may ID them?

Looking a bit further, you may also have a bit more involved than the two switches as it may have a rear switch as well?

Does the galley overhead flourescent light?
Two thoughts? Since the big galley light is easy to find, I would look at why it it not lighting first and then look for the small lights. If neither work and you can find them, I would look for something they have in common and in this case the ground wire (JF) is used by both circuits, so it might be suspect.

And there is always a chance it is something common like the tube needs to be wiggled a bit in the big light and maybe the bulb out in the small one???
Take an open mind at times!

Would this be the small courtesy light?

Thanks for your help, I figured it out, it`s for the light over the sink, but still don`t know what the i/o switch does.

I'm thinking it likely to be one of these, down about toe level, so it may not be easy to spot?
This is the chart for ID of electrical things like lights, and it shows LCS-1:
