Welcome to the forum.
Not familiar with your unit, but following the wiring harness into the trailer body should
get you to the batteries. Normally, the harness goes up into the pin box under the front of the trailer where there should be a junction box. Inside will be some connections, and following the red/black or white lines out should go to the batteries. There also should be a door access on the outside, or maybe under the furniture inside.

Thanks for your thoughts. The shore power comes in at the very rear of tlr and the entire bottom of tlr is enclosed.

Then the battery(s) should be located somewhere near that end of the trailer. Somewhere there is an access door/panel that covers them, but allows changeout. Should have nothing to do with the enclosed bottom. On the other hand, could be anywhere else, but still should somewhere be a door/panel that needs to be looked behind, or under. Sorry I can't help more, but where the power goes in the trailer, wires have to go somewhere to a converter that changes the 120volt to 12volt and then from the converter to the batteries.

You are welcome, just wish I knew something about that particular model.
Remember, the harness from the truck has to go to the batteries/running lights, etc. The power cord goes to the converter then to the batteries/other appliances. Takes time, but you will eventually figure it out.

Most fifth wheels have the batteries in the front compartment along with the battery disconnect.

My batteries are in the front storage compartment. Open the door and on the left is a panel secured by screws. I remove the panel to access the batteries. No markings or labels to indicate that the batteries are there. 2016 Bay Hill 34RK. My previous unit’s batteries were behind a normal looking storage compartment door on the back end of the RV. 2003 Coachman Royale. Good luck.

I just went through this yesterday. My batteries are in the front right side of the unit. I followed the positive battery cable through the storage compartment. I removed the panels in the storage compartment that are in the back of the compartment. Once removed I could see the converter along with a bunch of other cool stuff I was wondering about. In order to reach the converter I had to remove some of the furnace duct. Good luck!!!!

Another way to find the batteries is to look for the external vent louvers. Then follow the hose to the battery box
