Have you checked all of your outside compartments? Not sure about Mirada but I suspect they will be located in one of them, probably on a slide out tray. As far as service I would suggest you start by checking the fluid levels in the cells and making sure all the connections are good.

Welcome Pete. This is a great place for RVers to hang out!

I'm not familiar with your coach but sometimes they hide the batteries under the entry steps. Our last RV was like that. It had a latch to hinge up a stair tread.

The current one has a slide out tray in a basement compartment.

If not under the entry steps, look in through the engine access panel on the front. May well be hung there - both chassis and house batteries. Battery spaces have to be ventilated, so they won't be inside or in unvented storage bays.
