I can't give you a schematic but i can tell you where the wires should go;Battery post of the alternator should go to the center post of the battery splitter box that splits between the engine and the house.In the alternator plug the wire closest to the battery post of the alternator needs to go to the charge light or an ignition source.The other pin in the plug can just be looped the the battery post of the alternator.If you have no power to the alternator but do have power to the box that splits the power from vehicle to house the you need to put all the wires on the post marked batt until you can get a new one,this should get you up and running.If you are planing to remain camping with the temporary repairs made then separate the wires until you are ready to start the camper to prevent a dead battery condition if the house battery gets run down.Hope this helps.

Bought a used 1983 southwinds motorhome but no batteries. does someone have a wiring diagram for the batteries


no diagrams but the reason for duel 6 volt batteries is for proper distribution of power you can put duel 12 volt in it and it will seem to run fine but over time fueses will get weak and start to pop as well as relays. i hope this information helps. J&D services

WHAT IS THE EASEST WAY TO PULL MY 454 MOTOR OUT OF MY 84 SOUTHWIND CLASS A MOTORHOME ?


There is no easy way, you will need a crane, engine hoist, take out the seats, engine cover, floor boards, radiator, grille, anything and everything in the way. Pull the heads off, pull the motor, rebuild or whatever, put back in with the heads on and torqued up, I hope it fits that way, I'm sure there are tricks to it, but it is a job. I did one a while ago, not very much fun, but we did it. Hope this helps.

No shift or gauges on 92 Chevy 454


i would first look at the main harness going to your ecm(engine control module) there is a 60 pin connector the bolt that hold the connector is a 10 mm remove the bolt and remove the connector it should be clean with no burn marks to show signs of a short. if there are burn marks not only must you replace the connector but you fried the ecm as well and that needs replacing. also check your relays. often times even though you don't blow a fuse the relay still may short out. this is a good place to start. let me know the results
