1979 Revcon 30 ft need help

I just acquired. A 1979 red con 30 foot motorhome are there any manuals available that anyone may know of and how I can get it one. So far it will turn over but I donít think itís getting fuel it was completely empty and the wiring is in pretty bad shape itís and I need a diagram to see whatís what. Any help would be appreciated in any information that anyone may have Iíll take it thanks a lot.

Also what is the firing order on the distributor cap where is one?

Is there a switch over to run the batteries, I am only able to run power off of 110v from home , no lights inside work but the microwave fridge and ac will,

It looks like you need to go back to basics- Look for the engine manufacturer and work out the firing order and wiring for that first.
Interior lights are normally powered from the “house” battery. Not sure that you will have one that is working if this has not been used in a while.
You certainly have a project - Good luck.

firing order

You most likely have a 454 Chevy engine, ,it is also possible it is a 403 Oldsmobile, as 1978 was a transition year. Either way, firing order is the same:18436572

I have a 78. I discovered on mine that there is a plug in the wiring compartment where the shore power cable is. If the cable is not plugged into the invertor,,the inside lights don't work. Remember, your inside lights are 12V, so they run through the invertor to get power from either the generator or shore power.

Also, on mine, there is a battery cutoff switch in the back compartment on the right side, where the house battery is, , if that is off, no power from the house battery.

I hope this helps\
