Well, first I would need outlets..... my 2011 360 DS has only one outlet in the whole "basement". It is the compartment that goes all the way across. More than likely it was for the outside TV/Entertainment. All of the other compartments have no electricity and no lights. Our previous MH had a light in every compartment that came one when the door was opened.
If I could get schematics I could make plans to run conduit and wiring throughout. Unfortunately, they (Forest River) say they don't have any schematics and if they did you can only get them through a dealer. Of the two dealers I spoke to, neither have seen any. I called several repair shops and even they didn't have any - one guy told me he just traces what he can (electrical/plumbing) and hopes he can fix it.
I've never heard of a company manufacturing anything (especially motor homes) that didn't have schematics or at least "as-built" drawings detailing the unit. That might explain some of the differences in designs on some of the units - it depends on the day and the worker. (After finding soda cans, pieces of wood, scraps of foam in the heat ducts I'm wondering just who is building these units).
It's not like they are secrets - all anyone has to do is take one apart. There are times I've considered doing just that <grin>.
Maybe if enough of us got together we could get them to put them on the web so we could figure out how the stuff is built.
Hey, it's my world and I'm optimistic.
