I looked for the reset button for my rig without success.

I finally just wired in my own. I could access the back of the touch pad as it was hidden behind the passenger side console. I believe the yellow wire is for the reset, it is essentially a ground and using a momentary switch I was able reset the touch pad.

After a couple of years I was working on something under the dash and saw a wire wrapped in the black plastic protective tubing with nothing coming out the end. Pulled back the tubing and there was a red button, I knew what it was. It was tucked in a wiring loom, well hidden not easily found even if you knew where it was.

I found my controller in the panel next to the passenger seat. I had to short it out and then was able to program a new administrative code but have not been able to get it to take a new user code---very frustrating!!!

Where did you find the loom in the dash? Behind the radio, further to the left, did you have to remove part of the dash to get to it? I've got the same coach as you and haven't been able to find mine.

It was behind the radio but on the bottom of the panel mixed with a bunch of other wires.

One option, if you really want to find the button, is to use a fox and hound tracer. Attach the sending unit to the yellow wire on the touch pad and use the tracer to find the end of the wire behind the radio.

The program button and the red LED are connected to the security module. I found the button and LED on my last coach under the dash on the drivers side. There was a removable panel held on by 2 screws on the top of the dash beteen the instrument panel and the windshield. Removed the 2 screws and the security module was right there with both the button and the LED.

Another way to find it is to lock the coach door using the keypad or remote. You need to leave the door open so you can get back inside. This arms the system and the red LED will be flashing. Then look under your dash and under the right side passenger arm rest area for a flashing red LED. It really stands out at night.

When I bought my coach, I forgot to get the access code before I drove off. I found the Trimark instruction sheet in one of the front drawers, and managed to enter a new code, without ever tracking down the module.
