Rivet new to airforums with my 1971 excella 500 31'

this is all new to me,so I'll try not to make a fool of myself.I got my 71 excella 500 about five years ago,and were hooked on each other for life.I have had many rv's threw the years,but I was never pleased with the way they were put together.They would wear out faster than I could repair them.Then came along my excella,boy o boy the people who build airstream are right up my alley.I love working on mine. The builders of airstream and me think alot alike.Any way I'm looking to find info. on how to find a manual and wiring diagram. ?

Welcome to the forums.
The service manuals have wiring diagrams, but 1972 was the first year they were produced. The 1972 manual should be very close to what you have. They are available at the Airstream Store for $60.
