Oh look what I found...

In the water pump compartment of all places . . . the two controllers for the slide-outs! Conveniently installed upside down just to make them easier to read and use!


Also a 10A fuse is there and the wires are looped onto the water line so I'm presuming that's a fuse for the water pump?

Also a lovely array of parts that _might_ come in handy, on the floor under the couch, back behind the rubber flange.

I wish had taken a picture of the lower fridge access hatch on my Rockwood. It was full of saw dust, wood chips, wire nuts, wires, zip ties and styrofoam pieces. My project this weekend is to go thru all the compartments and clean them out. Amazing what we pay for these things and they leave crap like that laying around especially in fire hazard areas like the water heater or fridge.

My slide controller is behind one of those things that looks like a cabinet door, but has hinges on both sides. I opened it just to see what the heck might be behind it, and there was the slide controller!

At least mine was installed right side up!

It incredible what you find behind some of those panels. After 8 years of ownership on our last camper I was still finding saw dust and wire clipping after every trip.
So far I have only found wire clippings and about eight black painted sheet metal screws that do not seem to have a place anywhere on our unit.

ours was supposed to be behind that fake door, but it was placed too far to the right side that I couldn't get to it when the slide was out, which is when you are most likely to need to get to it,......I moved it to the left into the area where the photo shows, also took the left hinge apart, removed the pin and replaced it with a small bent steel wire(allen wrench like), pulling the wire out to open the "door" makes getting to that area much easier and quicker than having to remove the hinge altogether,.....did that on all three of my fake doors,......

While filling the tow vehicle at the local gas station, noticed that the radio was on and connected to the out-side speakers. Went into the camper and turned off the radio. At the next stop, again the radio was on. At the campsite, removed the stereo system and found extra screws in the cabinet and one bounced into the stereo system, shorting it out. Removed the screws and everything is fine now.

Wierd. Mine's right where you moved yours to. There's no door on the right hand side. (The "new kid" must have installed yours!)

there's no door on my right side either, just a blank panel, that's why I had to move it, because it was installed over there and when the slide was "out", I couldn't get to it if I needed to
