Dogmatix,

Very exciting. I see what you will be doing every free minute. You will be amazed at what a little TLC can do. In my case, a good cleaning or three really made a difference. Once we recovered the couches/beds and added a new floor, it looked 100% better.

Goswick,

Congratulations on 'Lucy'. You are correct, when the dust settles and you need a break from the AS projects, we should meet up just to exchange ideas. This weekend I am planning on researching a dump valve leak. Prior owner said the valve needed replacing. Wish me luck.

Regards,

Mike & Kelly

I just brought home a 1968 sovereign. Does anyone out there have an electrical diagram? or know where to get one? Our dealer in ther area just laughed?
Also has anyone ever replaced the shocks? do I have to drop the axle?

Ronbo, the wiring diagram is in the owner's manual (at least in our 67). I'm sure that somebody here will have a copy for 68.

You might want to consider replacing the axles on the rig. They tend to get pretty stiff with that many years, and it doesn't do the body any favors by riding on them. We did a full axle-brake-shock replacement on ours last month. World of difference!

It isn't in the manual I got with the rig. I don't really need it, I'm an Electrical engineer and will sketch one as I go along with the rebuild. I just thought it would be nice. I will need an almost complete rewire anyway. We're updating the old univolt and fluid level systems with newer state of the art stuff. I also want to add some of the new flexible type solar panels... Thanks for the advice on the axels...
