I just did a search of the Four Winds manual and copied the following.

The motor home serial number label is mounted on the inside wall next to the driver’s seat on a Class A motor home and on the inside of the driver’s door post on a Mini motor home. Refer to the chassis owner’s manual for the location of the chassis vehicle identification number on all motorized motor homes.

THAT is what I was trying to say.... only less than a 1000 words.
I see your coach was built three months after the chassis, same year. Ours chassis is one year (2010) and the coach the following year (2011) and it does cause some confusion at times.

The manufacturer usually buys chassis in large numbers and has them in there lot until they need one to build a coach. With that in mind, the chassis could be a year different from the manufacturer date. Example: My Thor Siesta 24SS is a 2018 model year but is built on a 2017 Mercedes Benz Chassis. As far as chassis warranty, it does not start when the chassis was built but when the model was sold. I took possession in March 2018 so that is when the Mercedes Benz warranty started.
