Hi Mike,

Here are two 83 FC “Start circuit” drawings from Wanderlodge that I posted back in 2011 – they may help:

Oddly enough I recall the fuel solenoid power on my 84' was tied to the "pink" wire going to the A/T switch

You also might check on the relays above the batteries in the compartment with them. On our 82 we had a problem with one of those that controlled the alternator. There's others there that controll other circuits as well.

For what it's worth, the drawings don't show any circuit breakers as being in line with the fuel solenoid.

Anyone know how to remove the ice maker in a 83FC35 side bath? I found a 4th frozen pipe behind it and can't get to it. Screws on the front don't seem to really do much? the bottom seems loose but the left side adjacent to the sink area seems firm. Due the right wall under the sink that supports the drawers I cannot see anything?

Ok, I was able to work on my back laying down bent like a pretzel with my upper torso twisted at 35 degree angle and both hands reached all twisted up behind the ice maker and got the flair nut loose.

Now, I know Wanderlodge was a multi-million dollar company back in the 80's with the best Engineers, Designers, and Technicians on the planet rivaled only by maybe NASA and Ford.

BUT REALLY??? Look at this plumbing, it only had to go from point A to B and this was their solution?

Like I said, the bus is getting "Putzie-ized" which is the KISS system on steroids.

ps.. I stll want to know how to take out that ice maker before I do it my way. It'll come out alright..will never work again, but it will come out.

Working on a water heater bypass for winterizing and I can feel your pain. It seems Bluebird loved soft copper tubing and flare nut fittings. Never use 1 when 4 or 5 will do. Talk about a Plumbers nightmare.
