Coachmen Santara 3500DS 2002 model

I am having several electric problems with my 2002 Santara 3500 ds that I have in the uk. It has a V10 gas engine ( been converted to LPG HERE IN UK SO SUPER CHEAP TO RUN!) so presume it's a ford F53 chassis?
Any one any idea where I can get an electrical manual for the chassis, the rv side is fine but have issues with fuse boxes etc and as there are at least 3!
None have identification on them I would like to try and trace the faults.
The problems I have that I have no power to RH indicator / Hazard but it flashes on the dashboard,
there is intermittent no power to the dash, have had to run an extra power line to one of the fuse boxes to get it to work but working blind without diagrams!

and finally 2 more that are electrical,

I guess it may be thermostat,or blocked rad but have flushed it several times and water is completely clean but the vehicle frequently overheats when driven over 60 mph or 55 when towing, or going up long steep hill any suggestions please.

Both slides really hard to get in wife has to push from outside as I pull inside with button pressed and still seems to jump cogs, how do I adjust please.

Think the RV may have been built late Friday afternoon!!!

Thank you for your help, Rgds chris perkins
