Still no power

So we're in Lake Tahoe now for a few days so hope to do further troubleshooting. Was told to create a jumper wire to run from wire end of inverter to other end of wire in harness to test for continuity. This can tell me if the individual wires are good.

No one has posted any actual wiring diagrams of this run so it looks like a call to the Mothership may be required. So far all efforts and voltage checks and plugging things end have yielded no results.

Would your trailer insurance pay for this at a shop?

Presume you don't have your owers manual with you. Found the 2005 manual online and it has the wiring diagrams in it. The scanned copy is difficult to read online...

/QUOTE]

If I recall, the 2006 manual Airstream had listed on their site didn't have any wiring diagrams. It would be odd, but maybe they changed up the schematics significantly between 05 and 06. I linked to the 05 diagrams about 3 days ago with no results, so I just assumed they were different. Then, after Rich posted the colors and locations of the wires, I took a look at the diagrams, and they seem to be same, or very similar. And, you're right about the quality of the PDF. It's barely readable unless you zoom in a lot.

Page 119 mentions wire colors and their purpose. This may be Rich's hope to fixing and getting some liveable time in the trailer.

A run to Reno today got 2 new Interstate Batteries and a new tire. The manager at Discount Tire looked at my shredded mess and said "well we can't plug that".
Have just moved to the cabin on Lake Tahoe and plugged in to AC with no issues. RV dealer said the 2 connectors were only available through Airstream. Hope to have some time tomorrow to try p
Other options.

Went through the owners manual and there's no diagrams in it. Tonight's the closest time I've had to normal on the trip as I now have a spare tire again, two new Interstate batteries but with Shore power the TV works, 12 volt antennae dist amp works and can charge my devices. Hot water heater works but still no AC or furnace. And the over the sink light works and one Halogen side light in the bedroom. Now if I can just figure out this harness issues.

Ceiling Harness

Page 130 seems to be the closest clue yet but is difficult to read. It is labeled as a Ceiling Harness. Considering that all overhead lighting is out with a few exceptions that makes sense. DVD amp overheade. Don't know about furnace line though.

Electrical Ceiling Harness update

Have to compliment Airstream Service Dept. for getting back to me quickly today in about an hour. Guy there helpful and was able to work with me as I read out the wire colors and connectors of the harness. That's the good news. Bad news is that both of the two harnesses I have worked on to repair don't connect together but actually plug into another set somewhere inside the trailer.
We tried to locate them and think we know about where they are, probably above the wheel well. Put two skinny teenage boys looking and reaching as far as possible with a possible location and thinking the other plugs could have been jammed somewhere. I think what has to happen will be to take the wheel well plastic off over the back tire. It's already damages on the side. Hopefully the other two mates of the harness can be located without tearing the trailer apart.
Thanks to those who have helped in this situation.
