With the switch out you have a pretty good sized hole to look into assuming the float still floats you should be able to see it with a light.
To get it out you could try a coat hanger with a hook fashioned on the end.
Or drain the tank and run water into the tank until it spills out the switch hole and see if it won't float over to the hole use long needle nose pliers or the coat hanger to extract it .
Good luck
Could you give us a picture of the trim.
I think you are talking about the belt molding above the baggage doors this trim also acts as the hinge for the baggage doors.
I'm not familiar with that vintage coach but it could be one of two designs one has a vinyl insert which covers a series of screws that screw into the floor frame the other uses an aluminum screw cap .
The screws have been known to rust and break off leaving the trim loose as you discribed
It is important to seal that moulding to the wall because water will travel in behind that moulding into both the floor and lower wall panels.
Hope this helps

Air conditioning update from Klamath Falls.
Well so far the chassis air conditioning is all up and running as I was able to see a 21 degree differential (Delta). I think I have a compromised compressor as it had probably digested a cup or more of desiccant bb's which went thru the system and plugged the liquid side condenser to drier line.
Found a great business here which is  Radiator King here in Klamath Falls Or. to do the following: condenser cleaning, evacuate, system flush and recharge the a/c.
 Also a very good parts supplier is Novak's or also called Baxter's auto parts, they were able to supply refrigeration hoses, condenser fan, multiple o-rings for the hose connections and also the pag 100 oil as well. I used them as I did all the parts replacement myself.

Thank you to Eric Maclean and Fred Brooks for all the advice on this saga, it is much appreciated.

Hendersons Lineup in Grants Pass Oregon should have the shims, and they will ship to you quickly.

I have a gap at the upper edge of the the trim pc where the exterior wall meets the storage area. How is this trim piece attached? Gap varies from 1/16 to 1/4 wide, about 6' long.

Got the switch out.  Once I nursed the socket over it, the doggone thing was loose!  I probably could've turned it out with my fingers to start with. 

Looks like the float broke off!  Don't know how that could happen.  The unit isn't brass either.  It's all plastic, and says "Advanced Control Tech" on the remaining float stem/mount.  I tried looking down the fill neck, but don't see any part floating.  But then it's a broader tank than I can see from that limited position.  Now I'm concerned that float could block a pump port or something.  A person would have to drain the tank (assuming the float didn't plug off the drain) and use one of those flex remote cameras to see if the float could be coaxed out somehow.  Aarrggghhh.

The inside of the filler neck looks pretty ratty too;  grunge and particles all over it.  Hard to see in the photo, but there's a greenish scum coating the device I removed.  Note the crack in the stem.  The gallon of fluid I drained off wasn't exactly pristine clear pink, either.

The new part won't be here for 10 days, yet.

While interesting, the solenoid's purpose does not appear to be the issue Brian is having with his coach. The problem is what is on the other end of the toasted wire. Hopefully he will let us know that and also provide a bit more info on the location of the solenoid.

I'd try any heavy duty truck shop, alignment should work the same for big rig trucks or motorhomes.
