It seems to me that the diagram should be included with the build and / or easily accessible via the web.... Hello it's 2015 and most modern platforms are pretty complex .....
There are no schematics, that's part of the fun!

Yes it did, as well as #22 and the best, #25.

I agree it's fun wasting time when there are many more important things to do.
What if the auto industry had this mentality. ...
Or the aircraft industry.
20 years ago I could accept this reasoning. Not in 2015.

I agree with you that it's wrong to not have some sort of wiring diagram for us and RV repair people to use when troubleshooting.
Donno the answer. My new trailer came with a worthless "owners manual". It was dated on the front cover 2 years older than my model and referenced things that were not on my trailer.
I guess it's more like a house. You would be VERY lucky to get any sort
of wiring diagram with a new home. Same for a trailer or coach.
Not saying it's ok or right, it's just the way it is.

X2. They do include manuals on the appliances. They are much like a home in that regard.

Maybe you should make it condition of sale on your next purchase. Some builders post almost complete electric and plumbing schematics on line, free!

If the gave you a diagram then THEY would have to follow it. I'm sure the first and last for the day off the line won't have the wires all in the same spot. Just my $0.02

Mojo I completely agree......
That's the truth.
I currently am contemplating why I have a 380 Amp.... The amplifier isn't hooked up to anything. ...... I refuse to be held hostage to the dealership. ....
All I'm saying is FR should take responsibility for its products. We're not talking about 1965 pop ups with 3 or 4 circuits.
I'm done. Over and Out.

Please don't confuse a wiring schematic (design map) with an installation drawing (a instruction for routing, supporting, coloration etc. of wiring install). In the US every installation of power wiring must meet the guidelines of the N.E.C. code, period. They have approved drawings or they cannot deliver the goods to the customer. Its not a requirement to furnish the approved plans to the customer. All power consuming devices must meet
UL codes.
