    as you enter the cabin on the left are 2 switches one turns on the step courtesy lights but I have no idea what the second one is suppose to do as every fixture is working. Any ideas?
    Thanks

    It controls the cockpit courtesy lights IF they’re switched on at the helm. I think the idea was to allow you to turn those lights on or off if you were going down into the cabin or coming up

    yes, it is like a 3 way house switch. it turns on and off the floor cockpit lights. just a fyi. if you turn on those lights at the helm and they do not come on. check that switch. if it is off the lights will not work. found that out the hard way. turned on the helm switch one night and nothing. spent a bit checking bulbs and then the admiral went down stairs and hit the switch. felt kinda dumb at that point when they came on
