Vibe 268 RKS hidden power panel

For those of you who hadn't already found this, open your floor to ceiling closet in the bathroom, crouch down and look into the bottom compartment. there is a vertical angled "wood" panel that is a false wall. Remove the screws holding the "wall" in place and have a look. This is the control brain for the tablet, fuses for the power awning (I think), and other significant fuses. There's a 40 amp fuse, so must be for something significant (power jacks or dolly crank?) Just thought that if anyone had an electrical problem and couldnt find the fuse, you might want to access this panel. The power convertor only has a few fuses on it, so this must be the panel relevant for the trailer options itself. I'm going to take a guess that you may find a similar fuse panel hidden in other Vibe models. Look for an angled false wall in a cabinet...

My thought would be to look for a false wall or panel somewhere. I would have never found it except the guy from Forest River told me where to look...

I realize this is an old post but that is the control panel for the wireless control of the awning, stab jacks, slide out and exterior lights. For future reference on a 2016 272BHS it is located behind the pull out draws in the kitchen and to the right of that is the water pump. The 30 amp fuse in location 1 is normally going to be the slide out, front stab and the rear stab. The 15 amp fuse in location 3 is going to be the awning. I haven't had a chance to figure out what the other go to yet.

Stand inside the trailer and press one of the buttons on the remote you should be able to hear the relays clicking I would start by listening in the kitchen area then move towards the bunks.

Look for anything that looks like a false panel. You clue will probably be a black headed screen in each of the 4 corners of the panel. My hot water heater is behind one, as well as my water pump access and the fuse panel you are now looking for.
