Mysterious switch labelled "Jensen"

Like the title says. It's 3 inches high, on a black panel, with a red switch, and a fuse holder. The fuse has a pretty big fuse, 20A. It says Jensen on it.

Any idea what it's for?

One presumes it turns the Jensen on and off.

(Jensen makes sound systems for cars and boats.)

Thanks but neither of you will be winning any prices for those suggestions!

I would either rig a R/C device and turn it from at least 100M away or pay the kid who hangs out around the marina to switch it while you remain in cell phone contact and watching through a pair of your binos from the comfort of the dock side bar.

It turns the constellations on, but only at night.

You may think we're just trying to be humorous, but go back and read your question and wonder why we're all guessing. A little bit of information would be helpful for anyone to help you.

I appreciate humour and in this case I think it's entirely justified. Unfortunately I don't know much more that I can add. I think the switch is destined to remain a mystery.
