Ok thank you

Click HERE and HERE it looks like it is behind the radio unit center dash. I will also double check to see if any other prints give location......

Hope this helps..... Robert

I am not seeing any other prints that shows it, the first link on the last page shows it as part of the docking kit....

IF you are satisfied with my efforts please feel free to select a STAR rating on the page.

Thanks, Robert

Sadly, I’ve already reviewed these diagrams but there is not enough detail
RV Mechanic: Robert, RV Mechanic replied 4 months ago

OK.... I have no idea what you have looked at or not. My next suggestion for you would be to call in directly to Winnebago tech support to see if they can give you a hand on this. Make sure you have your VIN handy to give them. IF you need a number let me know.

My goal is for you to be satisfied with my efforts, if you would like to try another RV expert on this site please let me know. I only get credit when you select a STAR rating on the page, if you are not satisfied do NOT select a rating and I can direct you to customer service.

I​ noticed your question back up on the board again. I have to say that as someone who has an RV repair shop I can tell you that I have to call in Winnebago sometimes as well. Way too many variations and sometimes the prints are not correct due to some changes that may have been made along the way. I think Robert's recommendation here was a good one.

I​f you look on the first page of print 174639 is shows that as right above the passenger's door and on the print in box 700. I suspect that it is in or underneath that area in the overhead. I would check in that area first. Hope that proves helpful.
