Smile Newbe Sunseeker

Hello- We just purchased a 2011 28.5ft Forest River Sun seeker mounted on a Ford E450 chassis. I am having a check of a time figuring a couple of things out, because the few manuals I do have, don't have a lot of info. First, the power mirrors don't work. I suspect a blown fuse, but can't find the fuse panel, and if I did, there is no info on which one it would be. Second, there is no power to any of the interior coach lights. I suppose the coach battery is dead, but can't for the life of find it either. It might have been removed,but can't even find where it's supposed to be.
Can anyone help
Thanks
Denis

I found the batteries and the rotary switch. Both batteries test good. Now, if I could just find the fuse panel for the mirrors.
Thanks you very much.

Appreciate,all the help. I think I can figure out now, which actual fuse it is, but where, in the cab, or under the hood, is the actual fuse panel that controls the mirrors, located in a 2011 Forest River Sun seeker, on a Ford E450 chassis located???. The manual says it's supposed to be to the left of the brake petal, but I can't find it. Other sources said it's under the steering wheel, but can't find anything there either. Puzzled!!

How do you get to the batteries? If they are under the stairs do you take apart the stairs?

Sorry for dumb question

Top stair there is plastic knob on each side. Unscrew the knobs and slide the step cover toward you. Hope this helps.

There are two thumb screws- one on each side of the stair well. Take them out, and pull the step out, and the batteries are in the well.
