I just got from a family member, the camper described above.
Prior to me getting it, the previous owner had an issue with the Elixir ELX-30 power converter. He pulled the unit out & had it repaired. He failed to jot down where the wires go or connected to.
I E-Mailed and called Starcraft inquiring as to a Wiring Diagram for this 12V system. Much to my surprise, I was told by Starcraft, that they don't have a Wiring Diagram for this 12V system. They said there was a diagram in the back of the Owners Manual...BUT...I don't have that manual. I searched the Internet to no avail. I did find the Elixir Manual. In addition, this camper utilizes the Starcraft 3 way safety module. I have that diagram just not the diagram for the 12V system as a whole.
I do not need the 12V trailer wiring diagram nor the 120VAC diagram.
Can some one advise on how to get a Wiring Diagram for the 12V circuit from the Elixir Power Converter...??
I have no idea what construction details manufacturers might feel the need to keep on file, but I have difficulty believing this info would not be readily available to the manufacturer. I would call the manufacturer and keep asking to speak with 'higher ups' until I was satisfied that someone had actually checked into it. An impersonal email might be easily disregarded, but not so with a determined caller.
Another option may be to call dealers randomly (hoping they have your model on hand) and see if one could copy and send the wiring diagram...for a price, of course.
The manuals are pretty generic for all the models. this should have a pretty good schematic inside..
I sent you PM with other info as well... I have the ELX30 Manual here and can send it to you...

Thank you for your response. I have looked at that Link and that diagram already. However, what I have in this pop-up is different on two aspects. Mine has a different Kill Switch System, incorporating the Starcraft 3 way Safety Module, and mine has a 30A Elixir Power converter.
On this Elixir power converter, there are three (3) output circuits. There is a Blue, Brown, & Yellow wires(s). From the Safety Module data, I have found that the Blue output wire from the Elixir, inputs the Safety Module (Red wire). I am "assuming" that one of the two remaining wires, one feeds the Furnace input, and perhaps the other, a separate circuit of the LP Gas Leak Detector. Without a diagram, I can only assume what Starcraft designed.
Can we switch to emails
email me from the PM I sent earlier
Looks like I have same problem here with manuals... My 2008 POPUP manual has the same drawing as for as the CONVERTER is concerned by had the 30A Converter installed. The schematic shows the 25 AMP converter. I have a feeling this is going to be the only schematic you are going to get.
I have 15AMP fuses in CIR 1 BLUE wire and Cir 3 YELLOW wire, Has a 1 AMP fuse in CIR 2 BROWN wire...
These three group all went to three bundles of WHITE and BLACK cables where White is always (-) and Black is always (+)
Maybe the BROWN WIRE only goes where you see it since it has the 1AMP FUSE.
The other two groups all tied together with twist wire nuts go the 15AMP Circuits 1 and 3 on the converter... Divide them up I guess between the two circuits... Its all 12VDC. The BLACK wires go to either the YELLOW or BLUE. The WHITE WIRES (GROUNDS) all go to the GROUND CONNECTION WHITE WIRE and solid copper wire.
That is one big RATS NEST of wires to deal with. As soon as I saw that I got rid of the Elixir UNIT AND GOT ME A REAL POWER DISTRIBUTION CENTER WF8900 series with a "smart mode" PD9260C Converter/charger to keep my three GP24 POPUP BAtteries charged up. In your case with ONE or MAYBE TWO batteries the PD9245 converter model would be the best one to get...
This Power Distribution Center has 11 DC FUSES so each of those WHITE and BLACK cables each connected to a separate 15AMP fused circuit. NO RATS NEST of wiring all behind the converter/charger unit like the ELIXIR unit has.
