Two Switch Boxes

I have a 2003 Airstream Land Yatch that I bought used. I'm trying to stay ahead of problems while underway by educating myself on things that could go wrong. But, I can't find the two 110V switch boxes that are plainly descrived as being in the trunk per the manual. They are not there. Can someone with my model help me locate these? This is the exact quote from the manual:

"110-VOLT SWITCHOVER BOX
To protect linemen from an unexpected shock the generator must: be wired through a switchover box. Two
automatic switch over boxes are located in the trunk storage area behind a false panel on the roadside of the
area."
Thank you.
Steve

Steve,

There is a false wall located on the Curbside of the motor home that will hinge out to gain access to the switch box. He said Airstream had it wrong in the owner’s manual and there is a junction box on the roadside where the power cord comes in. From there a wire is run to the curbside to another box behind a false wall.

Found the Switch Boxes

Patrick,
They are right where you said they would be but you would never know they are there just by looking at the wall. Thanks.
Steve
