Default 1987 FC repairs

OK, just getting started on our new ( 1987 ) FC.
1. parking/ tail lights.
l/f and one l/r brighter than others.
solution- 1157 bulbs were installed backwards causing parking lights to activate brake/directional filaments. ( easy mistake to make )
2. Directionals inop.
Found this one by accident. there is a phillips screw on the top of the turn signal switch. if this screw loosens up the turn signals stop working. tighten screw, problem solved.
Baby steps working on one issue at a time.

It is a never ending list. As you strike them off the top others get added to the bottom. Keeps you out of the bars....

That's because there's a bar in the bus, right?!

Looking thru the bluebook this AM, ( dog needed to go out @ 05:30, so much for sleeping in until 07:00 ) and I find that the pages skip from 10-1 to 10-8. I believe the missing pages should contain info on the electrical wiring and fuses. Tried looking in the old files and can't find any info on dash and ign wiring. Specifically looking for fuse locations and ign, dir light wiring for my 1987FCSB. My dir lights are erratic, sometimes work sometimes not.
Oh ya, dog is now back in bed, some things just aren't fair !!! LOL

A lot of differences in our coach’s but that said my blinkers are in the overhead compartment. Check any plug involved in the wiring starting at the steering column. You will find it

Try using the Site Search feature. In the Google Custom Search box type in 87 FC file/manual. My not have a complete manual but help will be found there.
