Where o where is my control panel


Bought this rv from a private owner, the guy knew nothing about it and I only paid 1500 for it everything works except these jacks under the unit

I called coachman and some company in nowhere, iowa that built these so please help
It is a 1993 coachman santara mc350 on a ford chassis
No slide outs and I have looked in every cabinet and under the rv
I even tried to trace the wiring from the cylinders to the pump and out from there but lose it in the frame

I would be if someone here knew where this switch panel was or is supposed to be........

Sorry your here with problems, and that I can't really help solve your dilemma.
Do you have any indication from the jack markings which manufacturer you have ? ( HWH, Power Gear, Lippert )

There is no panel on the floor by the drivers seat with 1 or 3 levers on it.

If you visit HWH web site , at least you can get an idea what the controls of their various systems look like ; manual ( joy sticks ) and electronic.

If you have leveling gauges visible I would be looking close to that area as you need them to see if you are getting your coach level.

My controls were hidden under the drivers seat skirting so they were not visable until you moved the drivers seat back, Gillig Chassis 1990 Hawkins

There are no skirts around the seats just the posts and my tag says this:

Hwh computerized leveling system
Touch panel control
Hydraulic leveling
Kick down leveling jacks

Now this is a 1993 coachmen santara 350 no slide outs
I have checked everywhere and even tried to trace the wires but I lose the wiring in the front part of the coach near the transmission. I will attach pictures of the coach.

I will keep searching for the answer and will post any findings. We are going to retrace all the hoses and wiring again tomorrow.

Welcome to IRV2....
The owners manual is available from Coachmen Owners Manuals - Coachmen RV
Manual shows the HWH control panel is located in the passenger side glove box....

I don't believe the computerized leveling system would have been factory equipment , on a 93 coach, a previous owner must have had it added. So the control pad , and it should look like 89sandman's picture, could have been installed anywhere.

Incorrect information.

My 1993 Pace Arrow Diesel Pusher has HWH "computerized leveling" jacks. Just like the panel above. All 93 & 94 Pace Arrow Diesels have them.

My panel is on the dash..Not in the glovebox! LOL

Thanks for the correction , I shouldn't have guessed.

Maybe too many owners couldn't find the controls so they moved it, I'd hate to clear out my glove box every time I parked.
