What do these remotes go to?!

Hello everyone,
Alright well I have my first question for the forum! While digging around my new rig (2016 Montana 3910FC), I found 2 power supplys and 2 hand held remotes I have no idea what they could go to. My first thought was that my theater seating had heat and massage in them! Well i've turned those seats up side down, inside out and every witch way, and there is no pug in those for them to plug into. I dont have them in front of me, but i believe they are a black remote with 4 buttons on them.

Does anyone have any idea where they could be used?

Thanks,
Adam

Is it a little silver Remote with tiny antenna? If so that could be the Dometic Remote for your awning lights I had one for my other 5th wheel

Adam,

Pictures will really help, otherwise we are guessing.

My recollection on the 2016 models is: One is for the fire place, a thin one with 3 buttons are for the sound bar, one for the jvc radio and one for the TV. On the soundbar it's hard to tell if the power is on because the red light is on top up high. I took a shiny button battery and glued it above the light so I can see if it is on. The difficult part about 3 of the remotes is getting everything aligned, such as speakers on, which location (outside, bedroom, or soundbar) and TV versus radio versus dvd. You have to learn them all over each season.

A cord on a remote kind of defeats the 'remote' part. I have never seen one like this!!

It sound like for your heated seat check behind in the middle of your recliner.

Alright here they it is. The coach came with two of them and two power supplys. I've checked everywhere on the couches and there are no power connections, no wires, nothing on the theater seating.

Thanks for the Help!
Adam

Not a familiar control. Have you tried it for the overhead Fan. Mine is a typical switched fan with one speed. Maybe yours has two speeds.

On our 2016 3160, those two corded remotes go to your heated theater seats. They are plugged into the underside of the two chairs.

For your heated seats for recliners.

Could it be possible that mine doesn't have that and I have the remotes for no reason? i've pulled out all three pieces and looked all through them. No electronics, no wires, nothing.

Thanks,
Adam

Well i'm guessing its possible mine are hooked up to the what they call theater seating.Two side by side recliners. When i go to my camper Friday ill look and see how they are plugged into them and see were the wires come the chairs.

Since it's a 2016 unit, you might ask the previous owner. They might have been left behind by mistake.
