1999 Allegro BUS 39 ft Electrical Wiring

I need some help on the wiring in my 99 Allegro Bus. I have a short in the AC circuit for the Microwave, over-the-sink receptacle, outside (in storage bay) receptacle circuit. I have traced it to the wiring in the outside storage bay receptacle. That receptacle has 2 cables in it. I disconnected both and then checked. I found that one cable is shorted. It goes toward the back of the coach. I am wondering if someone might have the wiring manual and could tell me where it goes. My wiring manual disappeared after being in the shop for some other electrical issues.

Thanks in advance for any help.

Due to the location of your outlet problems I would guess you have a bad GFCI outlet at the source of the electrical circuit. GFCI circuits are usually wired with the first outlet connected to a circuit breaker the next GFCI outlet is connected to the load side of the first GFCI outlet then the 3rd is connected to the load side of the 2nd and so on. Eventually you get to standard outlets connected the the circuit Possibly the rear bath outlet could be your first outlet in the system??

Found the problem. Checked the GFI in the bathroom, shorted, 2 AC lines coming in, disconnected both, one shorted. Checked the outlet at the foot of the bed, shorted, found another outlet under the bed think it is for plugging in the block heater, shorted.

Crawled under the MH to chase the wiring back, saw a spot that it went back up on the frame and wasn't in conduit. Got in the storage bay with a flashlight and BINGO there it was; shiny copper on the edge of a sheetmetal divider... will pull the cable out this weekend!
