need manual and wire diagrams

I have a 30 ft Silver Eagle on a Oshkosh MC-18FGC serial number 025905 chassis and sure would like to find a manual for that chassis.

I'm not sure but someone may need the year of that chassis. Just a thought.

It's a 1991 but it might be a 1990 chassis, I have the build sheet and on it there is an invoice date of 3/15/91 it's an oshkosh chassis made in a JDEERE plant

Unless the documentation was a LOT better back then, I don't give much for your chances. As I understand it from what other members have posted, things are wired up to a factory schematic without any regard for wire color codes.

Also, if my experience with FR Georgetown is any measure, the "Owner's Manual" is so generic that it's only good for lighting your campfire.

There must be some diagram out there that will help me to figure this wiring out even if it is not color coded. Someone must have a schematic or at least I hope someone does.

Just figured out that one of my latching relays was bad, it would not disconnect the coach bateries, I ordered one on ebay.

Right now I want to know where the ignition key get's it's power from so I can try to figure out why it does not have power

John Deere main Manual listing is here:
John Deere Ag - New Equipment: Technical Publications - Equipment List

Scroll down to MC - 18 section. Unless I am missing something, you have the gas chassis (18FG) which is listed here:
John Deere Ag - New Equipment: Technical Publications - Publications Search

You order books here:
https://techpubs.deere.com/

And of final note, support for the Oshkosh/john Deere chassis is now provided by Freightliner. You may have to go there for additional information.

Also, those manuals only cover the chassis (automotive) portion that Oshkosh built. All the coach stuff (interior lights, furnace, water heater etc.) would be from the coach mfg.

Does not look like the TM3000 manual is available. You may have to go with the 18 RV chassis manual TM1362. You can get one of those real cheap in the site store over at Classic Winnebagos & Vintage RVs!. It includes all the chassis wiring diagrams as well as most of the mecahnical stuff. Problem with the gas chassis is that the 460 Ford engine and some other things are covered under Ford documentation. Just means you have to approach things from different directions.

Refer to the post Rsflight made on your other thread:
How to change the ignition switch???

That may be your best hope for a chassis wiring diagram.
