    Sorry I need a little more clarification if you can. I'm trying to remember the Pace Arrow set up, so bear with me. I'm picturing one engine battery & 2 auxiliary batteries on those. refresh me, is there one battery under the hood, and 2 under step, or all under hood? Doesn't it have battery switches beside steps going in entry door, or above the door, or all on dash? I'm picturing all on dash for some reason. Are you sure what your calling voltage regulator isn't the battery isolator?

    I have the same problem, after taking the batteries out and charging them, forgot where all the wires go.
    Should have took a picture.

    1986 Pace Arrow 34 foot.

    3 batteries under hood, controls over the entry doorway.

    1 engine battery, 2 chassis batteries, all under hood.
    Was so many jumper cables intersecting all.

    After hooking them back up, hot to hot, etc and with the right length cables, just barely long enough to reach their destinations, got a short jumper cable left over.
    Don't have a clue where it goes.

I need the starting wiring diagram for a 82 pace arrow

Not what you asked for, but good to have:
I don't have access to pace arrow diagrams, but my understanding is that the chassis/motor portion is 82 chevy.. and circuitry is dependent on engine. Check with a Chevy dealer

1984 pace arrow 454 chevy, just quit no engine,lights etc. batterys show charge, no elect

The engine and chassis circuits are not directly connected to the coach.
If the engine battery shows that it is charged, you would check the circuit from the battery to the starter and to the fuse box. Be sure and check the ground connections too. Could be a faulty wiring connection or a fuseable link.
