Question Mystery switch

Joan and I just purchased a used 2017 5.0TA. We have most of it figured out, but not the electrical switch just inside to the left of the door,(the top one). Can't figure out what it controls!

Maybe a ceiling light switch that is currently switched off at the light fixture. Has been a standard feature.

On my trailer, it turns on/off the outside light.

Would also guess exterior lights. Our exterior LED's also have a small switch at each light fixture. Make sure these are on, otherwise the interior switch does nothing.

Exterior light sounds probable.. On ours there is also a small switch on the exterior light itself that has to be in the on position for the inside switch to control the light. Could be what’s causing some mystery if urs is similar.

Sure enough, The switch on the light was off. I looked at it before, but missed seeing the switch. We have been RV owners for 50 plus years and are pretty seasoned, but the Escape is unique and new to us. We'll have more questions for sure, so don't be surprised when we post again soon.
