I'm guessing it is the prewire receptacle for the optional slide awning motor.

Are you referring to the door-side (living room/dining area) slide out, or the off-door (kitchen/entertainment center slide? Reason I ask is that we too have the Redwood 36FB. Ours is a 2013 built in December of 2012, but other than some cosmetic changes to the interior decor, etc. and the paint pattern/logos on the exterior, they should be identical.


If the 12V outlet on your Redwood 36FM is similar to the one shown in the photo, and it is in the same location as mine, that is the power source to an optional rollout awning if you ever chose to add one on. Note the round weather cover over this outlet in the upper right hand corner of my slide next to the front door. That's the one I'm speaking of. You 5er should already have a second awning control panel both inside the cabinet with the control panel next to the door. You will notice an awning switch included in the main control panel, and a second awning switch mounted next to the main panel. That and the extra awning switch mounted inside the basement on the door-side of the unit are what would control your optional awning. Personally, we opted to do without the second awning, but the 5er being pre-wired for one will make for a nice sales pitch if and when the time ever comes for us to sell our Redwood.
