I would go to either Faxon Automotive Literature or Lloyd's Automotive Literature and get a copy of the Service Manual for this vehicle. It will have everything you need to work on this yourself, including the wiring and hose routing diagrams. There are many variations of these and one problem for use here is that the chassis year sometimes doesn't match the actual year of the motorhome. Your local automotive parts store may have some routing diagrams as well that you can use for free. I am attaching links to those two sites for you. Hope this proves helpful here. Please get back to me if you need more later as all follow ups are included in our fee.

And click on this link for the Lloyd's site.

wrong I have the book! If it was that easy I would not be asking the question if you don't know I would prefer you just say you don't know
Expert:  Randall replied 1 year ago.

I suspect you just need to take it into a dealer. There are way too many of these variations to know them all and I don't have a manual on every one. Sorry you couldn't find what you needed, but I will put this back up for other techs to offer something. One of them may have what you need. Your photo wasn't any help.

Jeremy can you help with the question. It seems everything I need like belt configuration is only the same as the Deasel engine but this is a gas Engine. Don't tell me to just look in the books for I have looked and does not show that suction line

Hi Tim. No body can figure this out
Customer: replied 1 year ago.
I already have 4 manuels and they don't even show a hose that comes off the bottom of the Air cleaner
Expert:  TIM MOHR replied 1 year ago.

this is not this difficult, the two lines off the bottom of the air cleaner, are for the hot air recirc on the air cleaner, one goes to the carb, the other goes to the air filter when its cold, it is not necessary in the summer, but if running in the winter is effective, tim
