1984 Battery hookup & MPG

Hi, New to the site. I Bought a 1984 Fleetwood Jamboree with a 460 ford E350 chasis and need a wiring diagram of the battery connections it has Two battery's and there are some wires that are not connected and would like to know where they go? thanks (Also Does 6.5 MPG sound right for this unit with only one passenger?) Thanks again Barry

Hi Barry, welcome to iRV2. It is possible that you had 6v batteries & someone changed it over to 12v or vise versa. I don't have a dia for you.

6.5mpg sounds about right. I have a 2004 35' with the Ford V10 & I get 6.5 to 7.5 with varying terrain & speeds.

For the diagram try the search section on this forum. I know its there somewhere because I used it to check mine last spring. As for gas mileage it depends on your weight, terrain, how you drive, weather, traffic, and if you have a good running engine or not. I have an 87 Allegro 33' with a 454 and weight of about 13,5K and get about 7mpg. I am looking to redo the carb and a couple of other items and maybe get to 8.
