Passenger Airbag shut-off

I have recently purchased a 2008 Winnebago Access on the E450 chassis. In reviewing the E450 manual, I noticed references and pages describing the ability to shut-off the passenger airbag with a key. The location is the auxilliary port located directly above the cig lighter. I have contacted a local Ford dealer and they said they have no clue how to re-install. I contacted Winnebago and they said it must have come from the factory that way.

My question is this, although I realize I am driving a MH and it has pleanty of seating, i would like to be able to sit my 2 year old, forward facing in his car seat in the passenger seat, with the airbag turned off. While this might seem odd, it really isn;t There is only one other place he can sit that has a tether..at the dinette. He tends to not enjoying being there for such a long time. Are there any thoughts on who might be the right person to call about getting my switch back? Or even getting one installed? My 2 yo would really appreciate it.

There is tremendous liability involved in modifying any safety device, and I expect it will be next to impossible to find anyone to make the change.

However, in your owners manual there are contacts at Ford for escalating issues.
