Might have been a replacement as the Bargman style can be had with/without switch. If same style and you think you could use the switch just swap them?

Is there an outside light on the other side controlled by the same switch? If so that would allow you to pick which one you prefer to have on when you throw the inside switch. If not, maybe there was a factory option to add other outdoor lights to that circuit?

By Bigfoot has one of those as an option. It tells my sig other that were low on beer so she knows to get more. You have to get the optional solenoid to get it to work

Silly you, asking why a manufacture would do something. My experience is that there is no rhyme or reason as to why any manufacture does anything, other than to make more money. In the case of your light, my guess is they use the same light in all of their outside applications, cheaper by the dozen. The installer probably forgot to flip the outside fixture switch. Additionally, the people that did the final inspection did not do to well either.

It could be just an extra switch to control another accessory, but isn't wired to anything because your camper doesn't have that particular accessory. I have seen switches in cars that are like that.

This is the case in my camper with exact same switches...They were intended to control the interior vs exterior speakers.

Looking closely at the picture I can see that whoever created the "Caution" decal can not spell. The word should be "ENSURE", not "INSURE".

I am lousy at spelling, and typically would use "insure" not "Ensure". I looked up "Ensure", and unless I am missing something, both words mean the same thing. I guess it depends on which teacher a person had.
