Unhappy 1983 310 coach wiring diagram for main panel

Hey there

My information panel fell out while driving and some wires came loose, now my generator won't start from the panel, the regrigerator is off, and I don't know where the wires were. Is there a guide to the colors or what the places on the back of the panel are for. Do the upper and lower connections relay to positive and negative?

I am in Sacramento right now.

Thanks

scott

I do not know if you hyave the same panel as mine but here's the color sequence for my panel:
Water tank common- red
Holding tank common- Brown
3/4 sensor- green
1/2 level- yellow
1/4 level- blue
Holding tank #2 common- grey
LP gas- green and white
AC powere on lamp- purple
!2 VDC battery terminal coach battery- black
Ground- white
12VDC battery terminal Auto battery- red and white

In my experience when removing this panel the generator wire is the shortest wire and needs to be clipped to pull the panel down.

Good luck, I hope this helps.

Are you sure you've lost anything besides the bulbs glowing? Fire the gen set from the rear, I bet the batteries and fridge are fine except you've pulled a wire lose from the harness. I'll look for a chart, but if you pull the harness down, (two people helps) you'll see which wire came off, or did all of them come lose?

about 5 wires came loose

the generator works in the rear, just can't start from the panel, and it used to, also the refrigerator cut out, probably from the fridge warning wire coming loose. Would love a detailed diagram of that panel!

I am sorry but I do not have a scanner otherwise I would post the diagram. Your Fridge warning buzzer/ light has nothing to do with whether the fridge will run or not. It only tells you that the flame has gone out when operating on LP.

Scott,

The diagram you're looking for is in the information I sent you via PM last night.

Good luck!

Brad
