Question What is this?

I purchased my RW36FB used. There are two of these white boxes on the side of the RV, one near the front and another near the rear. Can you help me determine what these are?

You will need to supply a more detailed description or ideally a couple of photos. I haven't seen any RW's with white boxes on the side of the coach. I think we need more detail.

Hope the pic shows up now, I uploaded it with the post?
They are located on the door side of the coach, on the outside.

I wonder if the previous owners used to have some type of screen room as that box almost looks like an awning bracket/mount. Just an idea....??

If you could back up on the pic so we have a better idea of where and how big they are.

I have never seen anything like this from Redwood.

Hmmm, trying to help, but:

My first guess is that the picture is not orientated correctly, never seen the shade from the sun go UP on something unless it's a flashlight held low

the dark circle of what looks like a "key cylinder" is probably on the bottom not the left ????

Let's hope not, but you haven't had your RW long enough to know.

I'm assuming this isn't a Full Body Paint rig?

I wonder if the original owner installed some sewer hose storage compartments? That's the only thing I can think of, but without knowing the real size of them, it's just a guess.

When we were at the factory a few years ago, they were experimenting with the water supply hose and the electrical lines. I did see one Redwood sitting up there that had some doors mounted on the outside but I can't remember exactly where they were mounted I just remember that I didn't think they looked right. I wonder if this trailer is one of those experimental units.

Going on a limb here, and by the one picture, I would say, if it wasn't for what looks like a key hole, I would almost venture to say it is a vent like what is on my enclosed trailer to vent out fumes. Since you said one was in front and one to the rear also makes me think this, but what would a venting system be doing on a 5th wheel

still wondering why we haven't heard back from them. I think we all want to know the answer to the riddle
