Need 1968 Overlander electrical diagram

I've looked around, but cant find an electrical diagram for my 1968 Overlander. I am adding two Broan 174 "cadet" heaters (1 in bath, 1 gaucho side where magazine ravk is) so I am focused on the 110 side.

I swear someone posted this last week, but I can't find them now. Any help would be appreciated!

Thanks

Just realize that the heaters you are using (Broan 174) is a 1500 watt unit as wired from the factory. That is 12.5 amps at 120 volts. Two are then 25 amps. Your total electrical capacity of the trailer is only 30 amps, so you are close to overloading the original electrical system with the heaters alone.

Airstream or Vintage Airstream.

Either or both provide replacement manuals for the 68... at a reasonable cost.
It has a lot of useful information in it. I have one around here somewhere... but technically I can't reproduce it as it is Copyright protected.

The Broan 174 allows for 750 watts operation instead of 1500 if need be. The bathroom one will be wired for 750 watts. Therefore 18.75 amps total cranked at Sauna level. Hof arc uses these same ones in all of their conversions. They are $53 each on jet.com and look much nicer than Cadet brand.

I am also planning on installing GFCI outlets so the diagram would be useful there too. I found a diagram from 1966 and from 1969... they look close but different. Will post photos once the project is complete.

I have a 69 Manual I can send a link too if that works? Says it covers a 27 overlander etc...I have referred to it for my 69 Globetrotter and found it helpful. I can email you the link or private message it to you.
