2003 Lexington 22' -- Where's the coach battery hidden?

Hello,

Just finished dewinterizing this little B+ but can't find the coach battery anywhere. Rear door, wet bath immediately to the left followed by sink/countertop. Across from there is the stove cabinet and load center, with the fridge immediately behind it, followed by a closet (doing this from memory now).

Getting tired of playing "Where's Waldo" so hoping someone can point me in the right direction.

Found this ad online. Same model more or less:

Many thanks

Are you absolutely sure there isn't an outside compartment for the coach battery(ies)?

Check under your entry steps. Our 2011 Sunseeker has two knobs on one step. Unscrew them and lift the step.

Batteries will not be stored inside. Look in outside compartments. They must be vented to the outside.

I was thinking they might be. I checked under the hood and all of the service bays. Will check again I guess. The steps are external to the RV. I assume it won't be far from the load center.

The batteries should have their own outside compartment door, and they are on a tray that slides out.

Exactly like this on our 283GTS. Passenger side.

Well, as Lexington owner, I guess I was thinking up something from experience, and trying to help. Sorry

OK. I found this YouTube video online.
When they reach the LP compartment, they say something about 'bulb access' to the battery because the battery is in a very inaccessible place.
Don't know what that means, but it looks like it's in that area.... probably mounted under the coach.

Not at all. I'm more than a little frustrated playing Where's Waldo with the house battery. There's one large storage compartment on the passenger side, rear. It was full of stuff so I couldn't quite see. Could you be more specific about where the battery compartment is on your Lex?

Thanks, I caught something about battery bulbs or toppers? Not much else. Well, I guess I'll have to get underneath and really look for it. There's definitely no battery compartment on this mh.
