Front outside compartment on Axis/Vegas units has typically held a fuse box along with the battery isolation relay (on older ones you'll find an RV custom products board there).

On newer ones I'm not sure: Is the BIM there?

That is definitely a black plastic box with a green connector on top... anyone can see that!

For kicks I watched the 1st half of that Axis / Vegas video. It reminded me of my days when I was desperately shopping around. Few things of note, we never looked at the Axis Vegas and Option. Not sure why not, may have been related to the bed and the fact that outdoor TV / Kitchen was essential to us because I like to tailgate. Well I use too before covid

Anyway; things that I noted from 1st 25 minutes.

1. I remember the Thor Representative, on the ACE & Windsport/Hurricanes models
2. I never knew the Thor motor coaches house batteries were destined to drain down dead by design. He made that clear. I read that problem a lot, but always thought it was due to improper use, bad batteries or maybe owner added some mod that drained the batteries. Being a boat owner, dead batteries is the worst thing I can imagine for a recreational anything.
3. The awning is manual. So is mine. I thought I read someplace where some was saying you push a button and it goes out automatically and stop? Anyway, I think the manual buttons are a plus.
4. Why is there only 1 set of vents behind the fridge? I assumed it was always two sets of vents one near top and the other underneath it?
5. Does anyone like the electrical receptacle being outside the coach? Seems easy for someone to walk up and unplug or plug something end for free energy.
6. Why is their a gravity fill and a city fill ?
7. The Grill that comes with the coach, looks like the exact same one that came with mine. I didn't see a Grill with any Thor we were looking at?
8. Did anyone notice when the guy was going to dump the tanks, he put on some black gloves, but during the connection & disconnection you could see hands with Yellow gloves, and then with no gloves and it kept switching back and forth. It was hilarious as the hands were constantly changing.

4 - The only time you should see the upper vent on the side of an RV is if there is no path to a roof vent - as in the fridge is in the slide.
5 - Every RV I have ever owned has had an electrical outlet on an outside wall on the passenger side. Where else would you plug in a fan, an electric griddle for breakfast, or (in the old days) a boombox?

Yes sir my fridge is in the Slide

Gosh out of hundreds of pictures I have taken of my RV, this is one thing I don't have a picture of ; but on my passenger side, there is large hatch door that when you open you can see the Inverter which has one available 110 receptacle and over to the right inside same compartment is another duplex 110 receptacle. On the floor of same compartment there is a slide plate that when opened; you run the electrical cords through it and close it back up to seal cord or when cords are removed. Since it is inside, it never gets wet or not easy for theft if the compartment hatch door is locked which we usually keep everything locked.

Later I may have to watch the rest of video to see the inside. It was video like that that we saw of our coach before we bought that really sold us on model. They all do very good jobs putting them together.
