Default 1981 FC35SB schematics needed

I am in need of some good schematics for my 81. Previous owners have made changes to things that don't make sense to me and need to be corrected. there are some on here for download for 77 and 84 but don't come close to what I am finding. any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks.

tell us what your problems are,we can help.
I'm not sure the drawings on a 39 yo coach will help.

Thanks Randy. It may not help to get the schematics but it would be a good place to start. Here are a few issues I have run across so far. There was a wire (not fused) hooked to the bus bar under the left couch running forward to the circuit breakers behind the drivers headlight. It put power to the CB's that are switched by the ignition switch, why? There is another hooked to the same place running to the rear through the floor. Maybe something to do with the trailer wiring? Haven't been able to get under to check it out. There is a 10 gage wire running from the upper CB panel along the overhead cabinets, over the bathroom door behind the kitchen cabinets hooked the water pump switch on the cabinet door? There is a solenoid under the couch with a 1 gage wire (12v) going to it that powers nothing? 43 years as an avionics technician, I'm sure I can sniff them out, But having a good schematic would at least give me a place to start.

If those wires have been added by a previous owner the prints will not show them.
But you know that.


On these old birds there have been many mods and jump outs through the years,instead of tracing a million wires looking for a bad connection we just run a new wire,the customer does not want to pay the hourly rate to chase wires and to be honest,the guy working on it does not want to chase the wires either.


Pics would help,for sure.

look at the 1980 manuals on here. It shows for a 79 but I found it to be close enough to guide me on my 1980. It will at least get you in the right places.
