You could take the converter out of the power distribution center drill holes in the Floor and mount converter in cubbyhole below bed.
I leave mine plugged in 24/7 but mine is located in a cabinet. Right inside the entry door

To be honest it would be a nightmare to move your load center.
having them just move the converter out of the load center makes much more sense.

I sure would ask them to mount it onto a piece of plywood screwed down on the carpet. Seems like the carpet would hinder the flow of air and could create a fire hazard. I know you can burn up a laptop fast laying on carpet or a blanket. And adding vent holes to the enclosure would be a good idea...

I guess my question/ point is if it get 100 inside the Motor Home to begin with does it really make a difference where its located?

I would say since it's located in a enclosed area that it's possible for it to reach higher temps under your bed especially if there's no ventilation. Heat is no friend to your converter/power distribution panel.
