Triple E Surfside: wiring

Re: Triple E Surfside Wiring.
My name is Terry. I acquired a 1978 Surfside that was gutted and partially renovated. I bought it because it is a full fibreglass bubble, it has electric brakes, a large fridge with freezer compartment, and at 14ft it is suitable for installing a small bathroom at the front. This is important for my Japanese wife who can just fit into the tub-space available. I intend to finish the renovation slowly and to a high standard with a vent-free, tankless & vent-free water heater, automatic water pump, LED lighting etc. The wiring has been messed around by previous owners and it is very difficult to reconstruct where things are supposed to go due to a new floor and a little alternative 120v wiring installed by the previous owner. Does anyone out there have a Surfside wiring diagram that I could get a copy of please? I will probably have to scrap the original wiring and re-install completely new looms, converter-fusebox etc. However, if I can take advantage of as much of the old wiring plan as possible, it will help in the less accessible areas. I am in no hurry with this project as we also own a 2007, 13ft Scamp de-luxe with front bathroom. It has a shower but no bathtub.

Here's a Scamp wiring diagram. This would work for most trailers.

Many thanks Byron. However, because I also own a Scamp, I have that wiring diagram. I need it to be Surfside specific so that I can reconstruct where wiring should go and what has been removed.

with my surfside I stripped 100% of the wires out and started from scratch, it was very easy to re-run the wiring, all the old stuff was done weird/miss matched and I was able to route/hide mine much better

Many thanks. I have actually started to do the same. It is easier than dealing with the past botches of others.
