They are often put behind panels that are not easily opened. Usually screwed shut somehow. Mine is behind this panel that has 2 hinges on one side and one hinge on the other. You have to unscrew the single hinge to swing the panel open.

That's pretty interesting.

We have a 2018 2608SB and I had your exact dilemma ..... where the heck is the control panel for the wardrobe side.

I went back to the dealer. Thankfully in our SB model with the extensive pass-through storage area under the bed ... and the edge of the wardrobe side .... the control panel was easily found. I was embarrassed. It is right there ... hiding in plain view .... just stuck my head in a little and the panel is mounted to the left. FR did this one right!!!

Hope you have as much luck.

Jerry -

We have a 2017 Rockwood 2650 WS. Our controller is mounted opposite of the slide in the pass thru storage.

Mine was under the floor in the end closet, between the water bunker and the end of the nose storage. It was mounted to the floor under the water lines. If that's where you find yours, do yourself a huge favor, and either relocate it to an adjacent area, or get a waterproof box to mount it in. Mine got wet, and burned out the motors in the process. The control panel alone is 600 and the motors are 250 a piece. Big fat thank you to Forest River.

This isn't the best pic, I'll try to get more this weekend. As you are facing the camper's nose, to the right side near the front is a small bunker where I attach the water hose and the cable tv. This photo is the back side of that bunker. I got to it by going into the closet in the bedroom (which was right above this) and removing a screw in floor panel. Good luck!
