Power Centre rebuild on '84 Bigfoot

We bought our Bigfoot used about 10 years ago and I remember the seller telling me that the Power Centre failed and he modified it. It never has been a big concern as we never use powered sites.

But now I want to fix up the Bigfoot for possible sale and I would like to get the Power Centre working properly or else replace it and I am hoping for some help.

I am attaching some photos and it appears the previous owner put in a switch, I'm guessing to bypass the solenoid in the unit but the plastic near the contacts has melted so I don't think that was a good idea.

I would really like to begin by rewiring the unit to the original state and then putting a little effort into fixing it, but I will likely have to replace it.

I am hoping someone might have photos or a schematic to help me get this back to the original state. For example, what was on the panel where that switch (red circle) is?

Thanks for any help.

Try searching for the manufacturer online. I have had fairly good success obtaining wiring diagrams,etc. for items on my RV, even though it is 1981

That's the same floor covering mine has. I just ripped out the carpet that was over it. Mine is a 85 but was made in 84 but paperwork says 85. ???

Thanks Gerry. The company does not seem to have a web presence although I have found a phone number for them in Winnipeg. I may try to call them on Monday.

I believe mine is an 84 made in 83. Do you have the same Power Centre?
