I know this is an old post but if you are still around did anybody find a service manual. I'm looking for wiring layout schematics for my 76 sovereign.
Thanks Don

These 1973 circuits should be identical to the later 70s models. I may have the 1977 service manual around here, if that's needed.

After closer examination I realized this is for a rear bath unit. Mine is cntr bath, rear double beds. Thanks anyway this does have much of what I was looking for, but would still like to see what is supposed to be going on in the back if someone has that illustration.
Thank you again.

I have a 76 Sovereign and I have a Service Manual (page 7-3) and noted some differences such as:

The extreme outboard tail lights list as (1) are side marker lights/clearance lights.

The next lights coming toward center of the rig (square lens) listed as (5) are the tail lights.

The center of the three square lights has a reflector and is a backup light listed as (6).

The inboard lights are listed as TURN/BRAKE Lamps and (7).

All the square lens lights have single contact 1156 bases. It appears on this and another drawing that the wiring harness comes down the roof on the curb side and down to the right hand bank of lights and across the back to the driver side to service them.

I have just looked through and cannot find a list of replacement bulb numbers though I am going through and replacing all the 1156 (single center contact bulbs) with 1156 based 18 Chip LEDs.

I am also going to install a 10 Watt flood light on back bumper wired into the back up light circuit that I found on ebay for 10.00 delivered and it puts out a tremendous light to aid in backing in the dark.

If anyone needs help and I can get my scanner to work (gettng cranky) I will be glad to do what I can to help. Give me a lower 48 phone and I will try and call as I have the unlimited LD plan and don't mind using it. Also need best time to call. I am retired so makes no difference.

Airstream sells reprints of the service manuals for many years. The one's from "secretary services" are poor photo copies. Also remember they are copyrighted.
