Could anyone definitively tell me what this switch is for in the roof of the outside battery locker on my 2017 Bailey Jive 570/6 (Pursuit 2).

It looks to be factory fitted as it's the same as the internal switches and I don't think it's for the motor mover which works regardless of whether the switch is off or on.

Many thanks.

I doubt it's factory fit. Maybe a light some where 🤔 Maybe for a fan to draw air over the back of the fridge 🤔 Can you trace the wiring inside the caravan to give a clue.

Easiest thing to do would be to trace the wiring from the other side of the switch and see where it goes. Presumably this is accessible from under a bench seat.

Edit. Great minds MM

I wondered if a switch for outside light on battery box side. I doubt it is original but I don't have that make

The switch is identical to all of the factory fitted interior light switches but this is the only switch like this on the exterior of the caravan that I can see.

The awning light has it's own switch on the inside of the door beside the control panel.

I'll see if it's visible from under the bench seat.

 Look on eBay .... it's a generic on/off switch that is the same as Bailey used elsewhere on your caravan. ☺

It's not the switch I am looking for but what it actually does.

A switch for a tracking device? Not that well hidden I know but just a thought.

Probably not as it's not a Bailey tracker that's on the caravan and like you say it would be a stupid place to fit a tracker switch for it.
