Notorious Allison +12VDC butt-splice 93 Monaco Dynasty

I would like to locate this notoriously troublesome butt-splice connector before taking my next trip next month. I can see only one 10-12 gage Red wire leaving directly from the chassis battery and going into the plastic loom in the engine compartment, but it heads toward the REAR, which seems counter-intuitive. All other cables leaving the battery compartment are welding-cable size. Cutting all the zip-ties and removing all the plastic loom covering to trace this wire would be a mammoth job. And when I uncover the pushbutton control beside the driver, I don't see a similar 12 gage Red wire. I have an inexpensive RF wire tracer, but it is not of much use unless both ends of the wire one is tracing are un-terminated. If either end is terminated, especially grounded, it fails.

Has anyone ever seen where this butt-splice is located? TIA

Not sure from your post what the problem is. Since my unit is an 02' the wiring is probably not the same, but I have found on several ocassions that all MH's are not wired exactly according to a/the wiring diagram. Do you have a transmission issue? Not shifting or no light on shifter panel, etc, since you said it was a 12 volt issue?

Mutt, I donít actually have any issue at present. Locating that butt-splice was purely and maintenance and trouble-on-the-road prevention measure. Iíve since learned that the butt-splice Iím referring to is not present on all early 90ís Monaco models. Iíve not been able to locate it on my 93 Dynasty, and one knowledgeable mechanic said I probably do not have it. Thanks for your answer, though.
