Are these all located in the front area? Were the cables marked before taking them off or not?

IF NOT, you will need to contact Fleetwood Customer Service at(###) ###-####and get them to e-mail a copy of the wiring schematics for this coach to you. There are too many variations on the wiring FROM the batteries based on what equipment this has. You will need the FIN number of your coach as that is how they are filed. IF you need more on this once you have them, please get back to me and I can assist you further. I will make a phone chat option available for you as well.

Just checking back in Ronald, to see if you were able to get the wiring diagrams from Fleetwood? Please let me know if you need more input from me on this issue. Thanks!
