Rockwood Wiring diagram

Could anyone point me in the right direction for a Wiring schematic for a 2008 Rockwood 276HW?
Gotta love "Prior Owners". Just discovered some breakers missing and other "anomalies" in our wiring.

Thanks in advance......

FR has documentation ! Like any manufacture they have to provide
documentation to their production staff.

It's a problem that we as RV owner's accept the RV manufactures
refusal to provide proper manuals. We pay the cost when the dealers
have to use the trail and error methods to fix our units, as well as the fact that we, end up taking our units to a dealer because we have no documentation ourselves.

I wrote the following and subsequently received a call from the George Town electrical department asking what documentation I needed,
which i received later.

Peter J. Liegl

PO Box 3030

Do not take no for an answer, they have documentation

Here's my Issue. I have 110 to all outlets and appliances. I have no power to anything on the roof. upon inspection, there is a hot wire that MAY go to a contact switch that has a terminal with nothing on it. am I correct that this switch is to prevent lights in the roof from coming on when the roof is down, and is this wire the one that goes to that terminal? any help would be appreciated.

Here is the wire in question:

Hey cateye.

That location looks very familiar but I am just not sure. It is still too cold over here to pop mine up and check. Hopefully someone will chime in that recognizes the wires. I remember the yellow one. Just not sure what it is.

I think you are doing a great job checking everything out. Based on what you found so far, I can see why your going over everything. Keep it up till you know every "mod" the PO did.

Vin.

Looks like a home spun job there. Got a multimeter to investigate? I can tell you with certainty that's your ceiling harness, but the switch is not one I recognize. I don't look as closely to PUPs anymore though.

I have an hw296 my switch is mounted on the front drivers side of the camper. If your switch is bad and fell apart that may be it. Raise the roof a couple of feet and look under the lip on the outside of the trailer for the switch. It is a suppresion switch that activates when the roof comes down

Yes, that's the switch I referred to earlier. I'm 99% sure that's what it goes to, but I wanted to be sure. I'll check the voltage, and if it's 12v, I'll feel more comfortable.

Is the yellow wire the ground and it has come undone?

It has come undone, but it is hot.
