You may have thought this thread would just die and go away but not yet. In my anal retentive slightly determined mostly demented mind I decided that as long as I have gone this far I might as well clean up the mess of wires behind the dash. Over the years many people have added and subtracted, changed and altered thus leaving a mess which corresponded with nothing. I have been patiently tearing out and replacing all the wiring, using the correct colors as shown in my manual. I have been applying heat tape and cleaning all terminals and connections. My fuse box is now a work of art. Here's my current (no pun intended) problem. The wiring diagrams do not show the wires for the warning lights to the steps, door lock, or levelers. I have all the other warning lights tracked down and attached. I have tried to track these down by using a meter on the open wires and opening and closing the switches. So far I have tried each open wire and have not found any which operates these warning lights. I tried to trace the colors of wires from the sources and that did not work. There are too may terminals where the colors change. Would any one know at their warning lights what color wire they have?

Kent, the finnished job will be hidden but you'll know it's done right. A friend of mine is a former Sprint phone guy. He does telecom interconnect work now. His wire work is the first thing you notice when you walk into a phone/computer room. Rather than a snakes nest of wire and zip ties his work is all routed and organized to the inth degree. I'm certain yours will echo his attention to detail. Good luck in your search for the correct finishing touches.

I was and am (need to put the newly learned knowledge to use) the same problems as CK. Reading all pages was like looking in a mirror. I thought I was crazy and it was nice to know I wasnt alone. But I think my problem will be the fusible links as I have them in my 82 diesel. Thanks for posting about your prior struggle.

I am surprised that someone posted to this old thread and was more surprised that I was still subscribed to it. If you have blown a fusible link there is a reason and you best track it down. My guess would be your voltage regulator. Change it quickly. You have an undersized regulator and most likely, like me have added many electrical goodies to your coach. This is an in expensive, under $100.00 fix and will save you $1000s later on. I know. Good luck to you.
