    Portland, im so sorry i am only now getting back to you. I didnt see that i had a message until just now. Since ive seen your post on the forums, looks like you pulled the trigger on the 310!!! Great! Sorry for not responding sooner but if you have further questions i would be glad to help in any way i can. Its best to call me though, im just not very tech savy thus my tardiness in seeing your message. Good luck with your cool new ride! Mike spencer, 217-621-9941.

    Please be brave and start a thread!
    Just look at mine... I bought an unloved, damaged and overpriced Motorhome.
    In hindsight, I maybe could have found a better one, but paying $8k at the time seemed like a deal... Anyway, it drove 1600 miles out of the gate and I had a blast.
    Nobody beat me for it, and the outpouring of help and support have turned me from a nobody to now being viewed as some kind of expert as well as Rivet Master!
    Your Motorhome has been mentioned before in this forum... I think in the classics for sale section.

    The fact that now you know its an 82 chassis makes some sense for the battery layout. Here is my suggestion... follow the main + cable from the starter motor and you will find your chassis battery!
    Thanks for the offer, if we are coming to Oregon, we will stop by... but it might be a few years!
    For a faster reply, email me as I did not see this comment!

    Also, There should be two electrical shut off switches at the back of the tray... both should be on.
    On the dash panel, the is normally a switch allowing you to boost the chassis battery temporarily... like a instant jump start from the house batteries.
    Do NOT use this if the chassis battery is missing or disconnected.

    On the 345, there is a battery tray forward of the entrance door, and it normally contains 2x house batteries, and 1x chassis battery.
    The chassis battery handles engine starting and lights etc, just like on a truck. The 2 house batteries handle the motorhome stuff, like interior lighting and things.
    Here is how mine looked before I modded the whole thing...
