Default New to this site, New GS owner

Wife and I just bought our first MH 2 months ago, 2006 30' Independence, 3 slides, V-10......6K miles......

So far we really like the MH...Couple of small issues but easily corrected so far.....XLNT shape...We bought it in Boise and drove it home to SoCal and all ran fine......

One issue we do have is it came without any manuals at all.......Nothing......I have retrieved some off the internet, got the GS generic Owner's Manual off their site, Ford was XLNT, but sure could use something more on the coach.....

I tried the factory and that is next to useless...Cannot even get a call back or an e-mail returned.....

Anybody have any sort of wiring diagrams for the coach?? I know each one if unique, but at least someplace to start for a new guy....

Thanks, and looking fwd to participating......

Many RV builders, including Gulf Stream, IIRC, don't give out wiring diagrams. They consider them proprietary trade secrets.

"proprietary trade secrets"

Actually they consider them a liability as they are not always wired the same. You would think they would be...but alas, as far as GS, they are not. Right down to colors changing.


But anyway, welcome to the site and the world of RVing. Suggesting looking to come to the Back to Home Rally next year. Also suggest to keep calling GS to see if you can get some of the docs. They may charge you for them, but do not expect the wiring diagram...just GENERAL operation.
