Wiring Diagram

I purchased a 1974 31' Excella 500 which has been gutted on the inside. Previous owner cut a lot lot wires which in turn shut down everything. Seeing that it is gutted an I will be doing a complete new install, I am not to worried about that. However, does anyone know where I can get a wiring diagram for the all the exterior lights by chance?

Thanks,
Paul

I have a 74 31' Sovereign manual that I can scan the wiring diagram for you if that will help. PM me your e mail address and I'll send it to you so you can print it out.

Owners and service manuals are available from Airstream.

They can be purchased from a dealer or Airstream.

You say you are not worried about doing a complete install of the electrical. Do you have experience installing electrical? I have a completely gutted airstream and I have pretty much been staring blankly at it because I do not know how to wire it. It is the only part of the remodel that I am struggling with, the rest of the project seems very doable for me. I am considering hiring someone to wire it for me so I can get over this hump. Any wiring advice for me?

Lots where do you want to start? By gutted do you mean the inner skin is off and you have sealed the shell on the inside and have the insulation in? If yes did you mark or do you know where you want ac (115 - 120 volts) and what and where you want the dc (12 volt) run? Hint here is lights power for devices and fridge 9 volt source. Most of the time we like to put things back where they were before and add the new outlets where we want them which keeps us from covering those cut outs from previous no longer desired outlets. Next are you replacing the converter or adding a fuse panel? Last but most important what does she want? Let us know then we will talk gauge and breakers and such then how to check it so that you don't fry the rest of your work!

Just read your first post and those are the easy ones ! Airstream color code is a bit confusing but it's all good they daisy chained the clearance lights (1 line for CL in the back sometimes green) brakes, backup and running lights are brought up from the distribution box (rats nest splice from tow cable). More in a bit better half beckons!

In the same boat -

Cliff -

Complete gutting - I intend to not remove the interior panels and just run a couple of simple circuits in conduit inside the cabinets (before cabinets are built in...)

Going solar, shore power will be one small circuit of plugs, the rest will be 12v for all LED lights etc.

Intending this to be a boondocking/camping rig so not concerned with making it too pretty... just highly functional.

Solar will prob be a kit from AM Solar or the like, with convtroller, inverter etc.

Thanks for any advice.

Do you have the mouse or mold smell? Are you going to continue to use the original circuits? There are many reasons we pull those skins searching and sealing leaks pest clean up re insulate! So I was wondering.

Have 1986 Sovereign 31, the running light wire was off on the inside. so I drill a 1/2 hole by the wire hole. All I can see is a brown wire, black and a white with a wire nut, that go's to the ground on the light. Top front left running light. Thanks

A green wire, is what you need.

Pull a clearance light nloose, that's next to the one that's inop.

That will allow you to add a wire if necessary.
