2801QS Wiring diagram

Is there anyone/anyplace I can contact to get wiring diagrams for the 2801?

Seems whenever anyone asks for info like this, everyone at FR clams up and there is never a reply with an answer.

Hoping someone has found the magic phone number or email address of someone at FR who can provide this info.

Thanks
Paul

There is always a response and it is always the same answer, see below.


We are asked by our engineers not give information like this out to the general public.

Joshua, I didn't realize that owners were "the general public". I assumed info on our coaches would be readily available as all my previous coaches were.

Is there some way for *me* the general public, to get that info?

Thanks for your assistance.

I understand your frustration; your dealer has access to diagrams you may want and I'm always available by PM.
Our presence on the forum has been helpful with diagnosing issues and finding a solution in a timely manner.

AncientMariner if you have any luck PM me. I've been unsuccessful. I have as much fun doing mods as camping.

2801QS Wiring diagram

I too wish I could get a detailed diagram. It seems as if all accessible AC outlets inside the coach are on one circuit. I would like to know which outlets are on a separate circuit.

It would also be nice to know where the ground wires that affect each circuit attach to the frame. This could save countless hours when troubleshooting. All of my amateur radios come with detailed circuit diagrams and they cost much less than a MH.

Pretty much a RV industry standard.
No diagrams available for consumer and only generic owners manuals supplied, so it's not just FR.

I haven't looked yet as my rig is in storage but have you found the converter? I bought the remote for it and it needs to plug in. Save me some searching

It is behind your fuse panel/Breaker box.


Let me talk to the powers that be and see what I can make available for everyone.

Thanks Joshua. I can understand not giving it to the public, but owners who are constantly fixing and modifying things, these could be great time savers - not to mention AIDS to keep us from inadvertently destroying something.

Do we have the PD 9160 or 9260 converter?

My manual is for the 9200 series, I'm going out to the storage lot today I will try to confirm the model.

We all have the PD 9260 converter chargers with the charge wizard. If you open your fuse panel, there is a little green light that indicates your charge wizard mode. If you feel around next to the light you will find a very small push button that allows you to manually change the charge modes.
Difference in 9100 series and 9200 is the 9200 has the built in charge wizaqrd and the 9100 is a remote add-on.

Is there anywhere to plug in the remote charge wizard on the 9260.

Yours is definitely different than mine. Do you see a model number?
Suggest you give Progressive Dynamics a call Monday. They do show a remote pendant that is attached to the accessory port on the unit.
Why do you want a remote? I had the 9100 series with the CW in my Winnebago and had to hide it in a closet behind coats as the flashing lights are non stop!

It's almost impossible to get my finger in the small hole to change charging modes. Figured I would put the remote on for easier access
PD website says wizard will attach to all 9200 units.

Ok my unit has the new PD4560 power control center. This has the converter integrated below the panel and the charge wizard is part of the control center. It is is 60 amps 1000 watts.
