I am restoring a 1977 28' Barth and have some electrical issues. Does anyone know where I can get an electrical schematic for this coach or one similar?

We have some info on the GM chassis in the archives, but very little on the coaches themselves. There was so much variation from one coach to another the wiring is often quite different. Lucky owners have the originals that came with their coach but these are rare.

Personally by the time I sort out the original confusing clusters, then figure out what has been cobbled on through the years, plus accumulated corrosion, I often find it quicker to rewire from scratch.

Good luck with your project! Mechanic

Have Barth, will travel Tooling Along

I have a lot of paperwork for my 78. I'll take a look after work today and see if I can find something that might help you.

I have a '77 and would love to learn anything you have learned from your wiring problem..... especially schematics.
THANKS!

Tere, with the help of Bill NY, completely redid the engine wiring on Old Blue. Takes a lot of patience, which is why Tere's Old Man, didn't even attempt it ROTFLMAO
