Default New to us

After a long search, we settled on a 1996 Scenic Cruiser, model 8360. We are the 3rd owner. It did come with lots of maintenance records, plus we also spoke to the widow of the original owner. Seems to be in pretty good shape overall but we are changing few things. Hubby can do a lot of the work himself. The original decals had been removed and had been painted over. Since we had pics of her when new, hubs repainted many of the decals and we added a mural to the back. Came out quite nice. He is going to add a pac brake this year, since it did not come with one. Everything seems to work as it should, except for the bedroom air conditioner which had a hot electrical smell when we turned it on. Drove it 1700 miles when we bought to where we live without any mechanical difficulties - except the air conditioner and then took it on another 1500 mile trip a couple months later. So far, we really like it a lot. I love the white interior. The couches are original but the carpet had been replaced with flooring. Both captain chairs had been redone with new vinyl, new airbags all around, good rubber, a new roof within the past 6 years.

Congratulations on your Scenic Cruiser. We love our Scenic Cruiser. Just got back from a month long vacation and it worked flawless. They are very good coaches.

We sold our 5th wheel and bought a 1996 Scenic Cruiser 8340FLT. We love this coach but needs some help. Can anyone tell me where the fuse panel is for the coach 12V system? Does anyone have wiring diagrams?

The fuses for the DC wiring on my Scenic Cruiser are on the first compartment right under the driver side. Schematic diagram of fuses are on the wall of compartment. There are also two big metal boxes with covers with more fuses inside them. Schematic for those fuses are in the inside of the metal box cover.

I have a 2002 Scenic Cruiser

Congrats on your new motorhome! You will enjoy traveling in style...people think they are much newer than they are! Scenic Cruisers are a great model, and I think 96 was the first year they put the larger 8.3 Cummins engine in, so you have plenty of power! Enjoy your coach!
