What are these?

Good day and thanks for the add. New owner of a 2014 Sightseer 33C and would like to know what these two parts are. One is a sensor under the dining table left side and the other high in the middle of the passenger slide. Iím guessing a wind sensor for the awning but canít seem to locate a switch for it. The first one has a lead heading behind the TV. Automatic brightness perhaps? It doesnít react to a flashlight.
Thanks!

Without a photo... it's tough but a good guess is that your referring to the "button" shaped thermometers that provide info on your RV's temperatures to the thermostat.

They look like this and come in black, white and brown:

The top one looks like it might be a temp sensor... I'm not sure what the outside one is. The wind sensors for the awning are commonly larger and stand a few inches tall on the roof.

Parts catalog here:
https://catalog3d.winnebagoind.com/menu/Parts.htm

It's a great place to look for the small parts and "look through walls" so we don't have to climb under the beast?
If I'm following your directions on the dinette correctly, the parts shows a 12 volt outlet near the left side of the dinette table as we would stand in front of it and a bit lower than the table? Maybe a plug with rubber stopper cover?
Perhaps matching this drawing if we were looking down from standing in front of the table?

Outside item not shown in drawings.

Okay, I'm with the idea of spys but it looks more like the inside watching the outside while the outside is spying on the inside????

how about an alternate plan to pull the item out of the wall and look for the wire ID printed on the wires?

And to match the spy theme, you can use this "magic decoder" chart?

Heah! It's Friday night and nothing else to do??

The one on the inside looks like a thermostat sensor.

The one on the outside looks like maybe a drain for the autolock if ther is one.


And 73's to y'all.

(RVM-14) It is what it is, and then it is what you make of it.

The one inside is a TV remote control sensor, it lit up when I turned the tv on.
