No more corner bed!

After 10 years of problem free ownership, we replaced our 2006 Four Winds 26' class C with a 2005 Holiday Rambler Admiral 30' class A. Beautiful condition on the Ford chassis.
Only 4' longer, but I am amazed at how much more room the class A has.
We have been looking for awhile for a small used class A. We like the quality of the HR. Couldn't take the corner bed any longer.

Yes, that extra 20 or more square feet up front is a bonus in the class A's! Gotta love it!
Happy Camping. (I'm thinking of changing that to "Happy Glamping" )

TJDave-

As a fellow 30-foot Admiral owner from the other side of the U.S., welcome!

Send me a private message with your e-mail address, and I'll send you a set of Monaco wiring diagrams for your coach.

Everything worked great! Except 12v outlets on dash and passenger seat area. Big fuse #22 in pdb underhood looks fine. Guess I better wedge myself under driver's seat and Czech that fuse panel. Figures I forgot to bring my phone charger to the Pdi.

TJDave-

That fuse under the hood is for the Ford 12V outlets. On our coaches, it's not connected to anything. The fuse you want is the 15A fuse #58 in the Front Distribution Panel. It's the upper-leftmost fuse on the top row.

You get to the FDP by opening the compartment door immediately behind the driver's side front wheel and taking the cover off the black box. The FDP is not the interior Ford fuse panel, nor the exterior Ford fuse panel (the one under the hood).

Thank you. I know exactly where that is. I will check it this afternoon

No luck. Fuses 58 and 40 good. The struggle continues.

12v outlet problem solved. After checking every single fuse in the entire rv, I decided to trace the wires back from the outlets. Removing the front dash panels to gain access, the outlet led to a volleyball sized clump of wires. I wasn't about to unravel that mass. But there was a red and white wire coming out of the mass with a tag on it and a plug at the end. It read "CB radio". I already have a CB installed by the P.O.. Same color and gauge as the outlet wires with constant power. So, I'm now powering the outlets with that source. Device charging on the go. Everything else is working great so far.
