Yes, I know where it is located..... It's on the BACKSIDE of your 12VDC distribution panel (circuit board). It cannot be seen from the front. On my coach, this panel is behind a plastic cover, mounted on the rear wall, behind the Inverter, in the last rear bay, driver's side. You can feel the big relay with your hand. You will likely have to pull the circuit board to get at it for replacement if it proves to be bad. This schematic will be helpful.... Rook

Once you find the solenoid, if you need power until you get a replacement, you can take one of the wires off one of the large posts and connect it to the post with the other large wire. This by-passes the solenoid and allows power to flow.
