Overhead dash fans

I have a friend who has just recently bought a 33ft 2003 Winnebago Brave. It has two fans installed in the front of the RV below the cabinets. They and I have looked in the owner's manual and cannot find out how to turn them on. I looked and cannot find any switched to activate them. I'm sure we are not looking in the right place. The fans do not have an on/off switch on them. Please steer us in the right direction.
Thanks.

Can't say for sure for yours but my Outlaw has a switch on the left side of the instrument cluster.

Some of the winnebago's like ours have coach heat that heats the coach off the engine. Do you have a dash switch for coach heat.

Looking at the front end wiring diagram for a 2003 Brave it looks like the fans should be the leftmost of the four switches to the right of the steering column below the radio, etc. (labelled AUX FANS, or something like that). The next switch to the right is the REAR AUTO HTR, and then the RADIO POWER switch and the GENERATOR START switch.

The picture on page 34 (2-10) of the 2003 Brave Operator Manual shows the switch as well. It's labelled DEFROST FAN. (See also the following pages 35 &36 (2-11 & 2-12) which discuss them under the heading DEFROSTING.
