I got a mess with my wiring..

my switch plates are all broken and looked awful. Sooo, I am making new ones. I was real careful to note the wires and their positions. But I got called away and had a brain fart. No pictures, no notes... my bad. I am asking Monaco Diplomat, HR, Safari owners (comparable models) to pop off their passenger switches,.. let me know where the wires go please??

switch positions 7 & 8 are correct, and the map light switch wiring is correct. The other switches not so much. attached is a drawing of the back of the 4 switches.. some wires are double wired hot and neutral. IF someone would note the wires for me and pm me, I would be real appreciative.

Hopefully someone with a comparable model can chime in, although even coaches of the same year and model can tend to have different wiring and options.

That being said, the Carling rocker switches have a number printed on the side of the body that defines all the characteristics of the switch, including what each terminal is. Knowing what the terminals are, might help to work backwards to figure out the wiring.

I’ve been doing some wiring with rocker switches lately, and if I recall for the standard V1D1 single pole switch, typically terminal 8 is the negative, and terminal 7 is for the independent backlight. Terminal 3 is common (+) in and 1 and 5 are (+) out.

Here is the Carling Data Sheet that breaks down all the digits in the part number for the Contura II & III switches, along with wiring diagrams: https://www.carlingtech.com/sites/de..._datasheet.pdf

All the best with your project!
Josh

Like was said once you find/eliminate the backlight wires and their grounds that drops your mess up in half. You could then remove all those fuses and power individually with key on if accessory power up one at a time look for 12v. Safer version.. Test all non lights wires first look make note any resistance. Then you could also make up wire and spade alligator clip and resistor with like 750 ohm resistor if its out of range with those resistances. Remove fuses. Put male spade in fused side of fuse holder, ground the wire plus resistor. Look for 750ish ohm on wires to ground. Now you know all fused Pos.wires. Put those to com on proper switch.
Going through a incandescent lamp to ground will look like a ground wire flick the switch or remove lamp open now. Remove the plug to wiper motor now its open or use ohm wire rig.
If you just have a bunch of wires you can ring them to ground one at a time ths doesn't work well in real life DC situation. There are signal trace generators as well but I hope this helps , if not now somehow someday. Hope you can get a pic or diagram .

Wires also get trained only reach certain spots you can get a rough idea and eliminate some possibilities too.

Fro-

Here is a diagram for 3 of 4 switches, taken from a set for a gas model, but could be the same for your Dip.
