Freedom Elite 24HE/Four Winds/Chateau 24F wall stud framing locations

This tip has been posted many times around various forums about finding the location of the wall studs on your coach. Basically wait for a cold morning and the dew will coat your walls *except* where the studs or other thicker metal parts are.
I happened to glance out the window a couple weeks ago and noticed a really good view of these on my 24HE so I took a few pictures to illustrate. I've been thinking about adding an outdoor TV since mine didn't come with one and hopefully it'll help others figure out where they can potentially cut into their outside walls without hitting framing.
I can't guarantee they don't put the studs somewhere different on every single build (I wouldn't expect it but based on some of the stuff you see on the forums I wouldn't say never either!) so YMMV on your own stud locations.

What I found in my 24F is that Thor installed everything as far as plumbing, cable and electrical - nothing was customized for my unit. Under my rear slide bench is all the plumbing to hookup an outdoor shower - I just need to cut the hole which you can see where it goes in your photos. Same for the outside TV - behind the drawer under the stove is all of the AC and cable to hook up a TV - again you can see where the hole needs to be cut in your photos.
