I think the first photo is the ABS lite and the button is the reset for the ABS.

1st picture is the alarm system. Button is used to program alarm system and to put alarm in "valet" mode which turns on red led. Since your led is on it is in valet mode which disables the alarm system. There is about 25 pages in the manual on this alarm system. When the system is "not" not in valet mode the led when come on when the door to the motorhome is open.

2nd picture is inverter bypass. Used if inverter has a failure that would keep it from feeding AC to the breaker panel in the bedroom. These breakers are in two sets. The left breakers supply voltage comes directly from the transfer switch and runs the high amperage devices like air conditioners. The right breakers supply voltage comes from the inverter and allows most stuff in the motorhome to run off batteries. In the case of an inverter failure you would loose a bunch of stuff in the motorhome so you would just turn the switch in question to "bypass" and it would hook those breakers directly to the transfer switch and you would be back in business till you fixed inverter problem.

Inverter: breakers running off AC supplied by inverter
Off: no AC at all going to breakers
Bypass: breakers running of AC supplied by transfer switch

FYI, are you aware there is a CD with whole M380 owners manual in PDF format on it. Do you have it? It really does a pretty good job of explaining all systems on the M380. Mine even has all the wiring diagrams on it.

Good Luck,
