Looking to lower my spare

We have a 2013 AI lounge ext. I want to install a valve stem extender on the spare to facilitate checking the pressure in the spare. But before doing that I want to lower the spare and clean up the rim of any rust, etc. The manual tells me that there is a nut sticking through the floor behind the bench/bed which can be accessed by though the rear doors. Turning the nut with a ratchet will operate the winch and lower the tire. I have yet to find it. Is it behind the fabric covered wall under the bench/bed in the space with the inverter?

What passes as a picture in mine makes it look like the "nut" is directly above the center of the spare. I'll take a look tomorrow.


Edit: Got my curiosity up so I checked. It's in a black recessed cup to the left (street side) of center and near where two seat belts are bolted to the floor.

Hi Shark, is the bolt that drives the winch inside the van or underneath outside?

It's on the inside under the lounge near the seat belt anchors. Let me know if you don't see and I'll take a pic.

Edit: See you beat me. Great!
