Default What are these for ??? Yes very new newbe!

I have played around but just want to make sure. Also when they are on and the RV is off are they draining the battery?

Thanks ahead of time for any help...

I don't have the first one, looks like 'tunes' or speakers.

The second one is for the fans near the windshield.

The third one connects the two battery systems together.

The forth one looks like running lights.

The fifth one looks like a horn button.

Thanks Restorium, "Tunes" or radio, I had hope that with the switch on, it took the radio from the engine battery to the house batteries but not sure. (Fear of killing the starting batteries)

And the Horn switch ... have tried the horn both ways - no differences.

But was wondering if they are in the on position and RV is off are they draining the starting batteries? (Again fear of killing them)

Thanks for the help...

They definitely have a potential to drain the batteries if they are on. Looks like in the picture the only one on is the horn button.

@bbybee Is your third one (with battery label) a momentary button (release the button and it goes back to original position, off)?

I have all those minus the music note button. If I remember correctly, my horn button switches between the Air Horns (two on roof) and the wimpy horns in the very front bay, I think there are two of those. One is for driving lights.

Does anyone have a source for buying those specific looking buttons? Looks like Gulf Stream has been using them for many years.

On my coach the switch with the musical note switches the speaker system from the radio for use on the road to the entertainment system (DVD/TV/Satellite audio) for use when docked...

I was just in our Coach and saw that one button had the music note. I never noticed, oops

Now I will have to figure out what it's for. The owner (2nd owner since 2004) we purchased the Coach from upgraded that whole system (flat panels, DirecTv Travelr etc) and the dash stereo was upgraded.

When you say 'running lights', do you mean the Clearance lights?

I have that same button (two opposing lights) which is always in the down position unless I press it up. Once I let go it goes back to the down position. I really have not paid attention to it so I will see if it allows me to flash the clearance lights

The button next to it has one light w/3 lines and is for the Coach's driving lights (lower than the headlamps).

Yes it is a momentary button. So Im guessing from the post that if the starting batteries are dead and use the switch to access the house set and get the coach started ....

Thanks everyone for the info!

On the two switches with the lamp emblems. The momentary switch flashes your runnung lights like the big trucks do when they are being nice to folks. It does not effect the headlights. The other switch which is an on/off switch is for the driving (fog) lights on my unit. Horn switch id for the air horns. If they are there and just not working it's probably the compressor like mine was. They are mainly for fun and just scare the hell out of people.
