Looking for 120v box 09 Essex

I am trying to locate the 120V circuit box on our 2009 Essex, 4502. Talked to Newmar and the location they referred me to is for the heat system, marked Duo-therm under the sink in the bathroom. Can someone else help me locate it?
Just trying to make sure everything is turned off for a short term storage.

I have a 4508 floor plan. My 120 V breaker box, inverter-fed breakers and 12V house fuses are in the wall cabinet above the toilet in the center bathroom. The thing under the sink is a Dometic control system that interfaces your hydronic heat system to the Dometic control system (i.e. EPlex or Silverleaf). Hope that helps.

I have a 4502 layout and the breaker box is in the vanity area.

For storage, just turn off the 12V system in the box above the driver seat ("Store"). This will turn off the inverter which will shut down all available 120V sources.

Naturally, the generator will not be running either.

Exactly where Newmar said it would be, but it's not there. All that is under the vanity area is the duo therm box. And above the toilet are automotive type 12v fuses. I am a bit stumped. I turned off the store switch above the drivers area and the micro wave and fridge was still on.
the search continues.

Our 2005 is exactly like the above from AZ ... yours may be in a different location but will look like the grey box (same as household breaker box).
Typically it is in a cabinet that has no other use but is accessible.

In my picture, the duo-therm box is under the vanity sink. The 120 breakers are on the right.

That the store switch does not shutdown the 120V, suggests the inverter is bypassing e-plex... which is how my coach now works. I have added a separate Magnum controller for interacting with the inverter..

Can you shut off the inverter using E-Plex? Or do you have some other panel for the inverter?

You might have to trace the wires. The baggage door on the passenger side that is closest to the rear tires will contain the inverter. Find the inverter and follow the wiring until you find the inverter breaker box.

You must turn off inverter before you use the store switch. The store switch turns off the e-plex system but not the inverter. Also my ac panel is located under the vanity.

Found it, sometimes it's easy to be stupid in the dark and in a rush. It is located under the vanity just as pictured above. I only looked under the sink when I had Newmar on the phone. The wife had a stool under the vanity in front of the cabinet doors, I didn't realize at the time there was actually cabinet doors under the vanity area.
Also, it being a new to us coach will take some time to find everything and how it all works.
Thanks for all the responses and assistance.

Excellent! BTW, the box next to it is a sub-panel ... check the inside for breaker labels on both boxes. The DC stuff is mostly in the panel above the toilet but you have other fuse locations in basement compartments. Cellphone or camera pictures will become your friends !! Walk around and take pictures of everything before the compartments are filled. Crawl in and look up between the frame rails

There are 2 boxes the smaller box is for circuits that go through the inverter and the larger one with the door is for the non inverter circuits.
