I don't believe such a thing exists. It is my understanding that not even the builders used wiring diagrams.

Folyd,

Which lights are you referring to? The DOT body lights, turn signals, stop lights or the inside camper lights?

If it is the outside DOT light, this miht help if you down load. It is from a 1982 camper out of a Sunline manual that was recently uploaded.
Sunline Coach Owner's Club - Sunline Owner's Files - 1982 Era Wiring Diagram

Tell us some more on which lights are going on and off from working and we may be able to help point you in the right direction.

Hope this helps

John

1982 21RB is an unknown quantity at this point
Some time ago I experienced something like this. The inside lights are 12 Volt supplied by the Converter -or- onboard external battery. The wire lug screws had loosened - find them inside the front cover of the converter. All I had to do was tighten them up so that they firmly clamped the wires.

Floyd,

If you are referring to the inside camper lights, many are connected is a daisy chain hook up. Meaning they run 2 wires from light to light in a chain type fashion. They are still wired in parallel however if the very first one in the circuit becomes loose in the wiring, it can prevent all the down stream ones from working.

You can try and take down a fixture that is not working. The wire is stuffed up in the ceiling or in the wall depending on the fixture. They used wire nuts most times and one of the connections may have come apart or loose.

I would start with the one closest to the power converter and take the fixture down. Odds are high the wiring to the closest one is the one first in the line. If you have a volt meter, check the power at the fuses first, then work your way to the lights fixtures. If power exists at the fuses, then you have to track down where the wire is unhooked. It may also be a ground wire that is unhooked and not the power wire. If 12 volts is at all fuses, then use the meter at the first fixture and use a ground from a different source. It may be the hot wire is all intact and just the ground is loose or not connected.

Hope this helps

John
