Need Help!!!

Ok so I have a 1995 Travel Supreme fifth wheel model 40rbkss,, the problem that I have is that on the rear slide out the 20 ft on all the electrical is shorting out on this slide, My electrician says that the ground wire is just slighty touching something as the breaker does not trip right away but like 2 seconds after turn on,, we discovered the junction box underneath the slide in the center , from there it appears the wire is in this hose like material wrapped around the slide support, ,,, so my question is does anyone know or have a wiring diagram for this camper,, I have searched high and low on google with no results any input would be appreciated Thank you

Wires are installed loose. This is to accommodate the slide out movement. The wire moves while going down the road, when the wind blows and when the slide out is moving. The place to check for the short is along the wiring that moves. A wiring diagram will not help you to find a short. Examination of the wires to find the bare one that is shorting out is the only way to find it. It takes time and patience.

You will have to remove the sleeve from the wiring to do this.
