Question Fuse Panel

I am a new member and are looking for help locating fuse panel for chassis fuses. My rig is a 2004 Four Winds Mandalay 40b built on a Freightliner XC chassis. According to the freightliner owners manual their should be two boxes either in front of driver side interior or exterior or next to driver side wall. Cannot find. The only thing I can find is a circuit board up behind instrument cluster behind dash that has some fuses and relays nestled under many wiring harness. Am I looking in the wrong place? I am aware of panel in back of rig that controls coach circuits both 120V and 12V but I am looking for fuses that control exterior lights which I would assume to be freightliner domain.

Welcome to iRV2.

The Freightliner fuse boxes , are loose on the bare chassis when it's shipped to the coach manufacturer, and have about 6 feet of wiring harness that allows the builder to locate them in an number of locations . Mine are on the front of the firewall above the gen set . They could easily be under the dash board or if your coach has a compartment outside below the drivers feet , they could be inside that compartment and hidden behind a closure panel at the back.
Here's what mine look like.
BTW: I don't know how custom the wiring harnesses are on each chassis , but the numbers on the boxes are, the last of my chassis serial number.

I got to thinking ; and at this time of night that's a dangerous thing
that maybe a better angle shot of the wiring harness would help.
This picture , the white arrow and the harness with the white tape is the end of the chassis harness as it comes off the frame rail .
The connector with the red arrow , is the start of what Freightliner considers the dash harness, the smaller sections of the dash harness with the blue tape go to the fuse/relay boxes, and numerous other sections wiring go through the firewall behind the dash.
