MT Tradewinds 43 - Systems

Like most new owners, I am on the vertical learning curve.

If anybody has or have developed schematic/hand drawn diagrams of systems (electrical, septic, fuel etc) and would consider sharing, it would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks in advance!

I copied my blueprints from the builder then use clear overlays. Then into a tabbed binder with a notes section for each.

Sounds extreme but once you start overlapping and physically routing redundant systems you will be glad you built a master.

And if you want to check clearances you have scale and can just layer as many as you want to see at once.

I used the free windows draw program to diagram my electrical, electronics, and septic systems. The effort to
learn the systems and diagram them has come in very handy.
