RVA JII location of Manual Release valves

2003 Safari Zanzibar and I cannot find the location of the manual retract valves. I started looking near the Dexron fill tank in the same passenger rear compartment as the fuel filters and it does look like there is a plastic cover but it is not removeable and I cannot see anything underneath in that area either. The attached diagram looks like it is near the pump (lower part) and I would think it would be next to the tank.
Any ideas?

The manual release valves are located on top of the manifold block with solenoid valves. Each one has a "T" handle on top so that you can loosen and tighten it.

Right on top there are three T-handles. I had wires intertwined in them and had to untangle the wires to turn them.

I understand, but I cannot find where the T handles are located. What compartment did Monaco install them in?

I Googled pics of a 2003 Safari and didn't see a louvered door just behind the drive axle on the roadside like on my 2005 Monaco Knight. My leveller hydraulic reservoir, manifold and valves with T handles is located behind that door which houses the dash A/C evaporator and electric fan. The door has two latches operated by a barrel key.
Does your coach have a door like that?

I don't have a louvered door, but attached is pic of the rear curbside door and this is where I think they should be since the reservoir is here. There is a compartment just ahead of this and behind the drive axle that is the battery compartment.

On my 2005 Beaver, the RVA setup is located on the frame just behind the entry step.

I finally found where the pump and valves. It is located just behind to compartment opening that I showed and along side the battery compartment. I thought these would have to be in an open compartment. They really need to be cleaned before I can check much. I want to check the the manual release is tight because the left rear is slowly retracting.
Thanks to everyone that replied....love this forum.

I believe there are Kits to rebuild the solenoids if valve doesn't fix it. Pretty sure mostly viton
O-rings.
