Winegard dc power switch?

My 2020 27.7 came with a Winegard connect 2.0 runs with togo. I've searched the various build diagrams and searched the rv - does anyone know if there is a switch to turn on/off dc power to the roof unit? It's referred to as a wp2-6dc switch. I know where the green light and pop up button are for the antenna booster but that does not turn off power to the roof dome.

The "wp2-6dc" is an optional wall plate. How may push buttons do you have on the wallplate with the antenna booster LED. Both switches can be on that wallplate or their may be separate wallplates.

There is only a single push button. I can't find any switches not otherwise accounted for.

Thor did not install the Power switch in the 2020 models. They started adding it in the 2021 models. The 2020 is wired directly to the 12V system so it is powered on at all times.

There is only the push button switch to change from Over-the-Air to Cable. When the LED light is on, you are using the Winegard TV antenna.

Only way turn power off is kill power to entire rig at barrel switch. You can order new wall panel from winegard that has power switch.

Thanks for the information. I'd like to add a shut off switch but hate the thought of taking off a bunch of panels. I'll check to see if the power line to the dome unit is behind the antenna/cable plate and I can put in a switch next to the antenna/cable plate.
