Still begs the question what does the third courtesy switch control.. it has grey with blue stripe wiring just like the other courtesy light switches.. the issue now is it would require dismantling the forward cabin to wire up the lights near the anchor windless..
If the mystery switch has both inbound line from the power source and an outbound line to the device then it must go somewhere. IF this is the case, then first and foremost, be careful that there isn't an open circuit somewhere.
It's always a mystery what some previous owner thought was a good idea. They might have wanted to disconnect those light from other lights, so disconnecting might have been what they thought was a good idea. Maybe the guy dropped the wire attempting to service or replace the lights.
If there is an outbound line from the switch you might be able to 'tone' the line and see if you can find it. It might be right iside of the mounting hole.
