My 2015 Broadway has all the usual isolator switches for microwave, heating blankets (two) etc But the one in the cupboard above the fridge is a mystery, No label, and no reference in the instruction book that I can find.

In the pic. (hopefully uploaded) it's just above the 12v socket and the two TV input connectors (Belling Lee and F type). Any suggestions are welcome!

Sorry - failed to upload the picture

Hi, what you describe is similar to our set up one of which is a square rocker switch that illuminates when turned on....it is our microwave 'power on' switch. Apologies if I'm stating nonsense in your enquiry. Regards

Thanks but it not the microwave, which in our van is below the cupboard and adjacent to the wineglass compartment.

In view of the location, which is similar to that in our Pollensa, could it be for a TV aerial signal amplifier?

Well that might make sense - thanks. No way of knowing because I only use satellite reception. But thanks again!

Could it be an isolator switch for an electric hob, assuming your cooker is multi fuel  ie gas burners and 240volt hob

Does your switch look like this? It may be the missile launcher...

Looking at your avatar is what inspired me with the switch! Such a omission I thought that the review of 100 years of the RAF on TV the other night made no mention of the Lightning. An iconic plane.

I'll never forget the only time I saw one flying, at Doncaster air show.

He arrived low, along the runway at what looked like almost stall speed, then opened the throttle, did a 90º rotate and climbed vertically for about 30sec.

The sound almost blew everybody's heads off.

I saw one at Brands Hatch for a British Grand Prix and it did much the same trick.

[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]  I was there in the rain.  I shared my brolly with a local lad who had no coat and whose only interest was that he had grown up with Lightning's and was going to miss them.

They were happy days Peter!
One of my favourite RAF Stations which I was required (it was always a pleasure!) to visit in a professional capacity on a regular basis. 
The thing that always amazed me was the leaking fuel tanks - if ever you noticed - there was always a very large drip tray underneath each parked aircraft! It was impossible to maintain the fuel tank integrity which was caused by the airframe movement (expansion/contraction) experienced during its high speed sorties. It would not be tolerated in todays H&S and environmental atmosphere - but the Lightning and the Bloodhound missile system kept the country safe.
Apologies I have gone well off topic - but the missile arming switches were very similar to the one posted above!!

Cruisecontrol, I'm sorry for keeping off topic. It only took me an instant to take and post the photo above. Have you tried to use the green "+ select files" button to browse you PC for your picture? You then have to do the send followed by insert operations.
