2018 Wolfpup 18TO Slide Controller

Posting here for future reference. After a search in every cabinet and cubby I found the slide out controller inside the cabin towards the front of the camper and under the slide out. Looking at the couch, it is on the right side mounted to outside wall. If your slide out is retracted then the only way to reach it is by feeling around in the narrow right back corner by the master bed between the couch and bed riser wall. You will have to remove the 3 decorative buttons covering the screws on the padded decoration panel on the bottom front of the couch.
Also, I noticed the complete lack of quality control in building this camper, not impressed Forrest River!!!

You must be new to RV ownership. False panels hiding things like the slide controller, water pump, water filter, water heater bypass valves and so on, is standard throughout the RV Industry, no matter the brand or manufacturer.

Not new to this kind of stuff, new to this trailer. Just want to alleviate otherís frustration when they go looking in the obvious places. Since my slider was stuck retracted I had very little room to work. I had to use my borescope to take a peek under the slide out floor where I found it.
Iíll be moving it to the water heater/pump cubby under the master bed.
Thanks👍

Maybe post instructions and pictures when you move the controller to help others who aren't so creative...
