Hi, my trailer had a big box all the way across the front behind my Gaucho; This was for hiding the wires that were all in about a one foot area. Normally, [in my younger years] I would have redone everything. But since I don't have any problems with the wiring, I covered it back up with my new credenza.

Not to be contrary but the wireing may look terrible but does it not function okay? Seems most of the problems? people are having is when they are doing non stock installation,etc. the vast majority of us will never see this wireing and never have a problem..unless modified by themselves or a po. My opinion. Jim

90+% of the Airstream owners will never see the wiring work in their trailer. Those of us that have worked with such things see pictures like this as a general disrespect for the job.

A mechanic that is content to have his sloppy work hidden most likely is not doing quality work to begin with.

Kind of how I feel. I did video-teleconferencing in my early years to the USMC/USN distance learning program at FCTCLANT and eventually moved over to the install side and we did a lot of cabling setting up those systems and took pride in my cable runs. It was incredibly frustrating to come into a system to update and find wires just strung about and not labeled and made my job more difficult. I know that after I did a job, anyone could service or update my work expediently because we took the time to organize, label and route things so they we're just strung all over.

I totally get Jim's POV too. Yeah it all works, no one will see it. But I'll know it's there. And when I add too it my inverter and solar charge controller, I'll also know I didn't do it right or as good as I could.

My black box has more than just the umbilical run to it and a lot more wires going in and out. Mine is a positive junction block for quite a bit of stuff. Bold, to answer your question...I found no source for circuit descriptions nor schematics. So, one boring winter week, I just began isolating, labeling and cleaning up circuits. All my wiring in the electrical center now have plastic (ish) Brother P-touch brand labels wrapped around them. Not a quick easy answer for you, but it helps for future work.

I had issues with my 2015 23FB and called AS customer service, talked with a real nice lady and within 24 hrs I had the complete wiring diagrams for 120V & 12V, along with waste (grey & black) and fresh water plumbing in my in box.

BTW, Mickey has a full time job with Disney, Goofy on the other hand works part time for AS doing wiring I believe. ;-)

We get just what we except, When the Germans/Japanese and other see what we are excepting they will come and clean our clocks both quality and cost wise.

I hope to get back to Jackson and let them clean up my warranty issues that should have never left the factory. Heaven know the FL dealer was not interested in doing there work under warranty unless I gave them 3 months to schedule.

Chuck

Well the camera on my iPhone broke. But I started wiring today. Got a few new pieces and I'll have to post up pictures when I'm done. Also, got a label maker!
