Solar controller location

We have a 2021 Flagstaff Super lite 26FKBS. It says it is prewired for solar but what does that mean? It has both plug for panels on front passenger corner and on roof. Does anyone know if it has a built in solar controller somewhere? If so where? Or where do the wires go so you can connect the controller

If you battery voltage at the connectors then they are wired directly to the battery, no solar controller.

Typically "Prewired for solar" means just that": there is a cable from the battery area to the roof. You are expected to put panels on the roof and a controller near the battery.
