Default Small Switch on Wall in Bathroom

Got my new-to-me 2001 22í TowLite home last night. Iím trying to figure out all the switches inside and I canít seem to figure out what the small white switch high up on the rear wall in the bathroom does. Iím not sure if itís related, but the light fixture over the shower does not work, the bulb is good. The other bathroom lamp works fine.

I am also unable to get the roof vent motor to work. It did work when I looked at the camper a few weeks ago. Not sure on the likely cause of intermittent operation. Itís not a big deal as I need to replace all the original self-lapping sealant on the roof and will replace both the powered and unpowered vents and the shower skylight then. (Iím assuming there is 12v power at the front vent location from the factory; my front fan is unpowered).

Anyone have an idea?

Thanks,
Nick

Turn the switch on then turn the switch on the light over the shower

Thank you. I thought this might've been a second switch for the shower light but nothing. Light bulb is good. I guess the switch could be bad.

There Ďshouldí be a yellow and white wire at the front vent location. Once you pull the original vent assembly out the wire should be tucked between the fixture and the plywood framing.

Thank you!

Also, I removed the shower light fixture and found there is power going to the wall switch and to the switch mounted on the fixture itself, and no power coming out of the fixture switch to the bulb holder. I simply cut off the terminal and connected the power feed from the wall switch directly to the bulb. All is well now!
