Bus wiring

I have a 1994 3600 international short bus. Does anyone know about the wiring diagram in it. And what precautions I should use when tracing them back to the fuse box in order to remove unused ones?

Cut one wire at a time and after each cut make sure everything still works - especially make sure your bus still starts. If something suddenly doesn't work, you know what the wire you just cut was for. There are just too many posts on this site (and other skoolie forums) about disasters that result from cutting "unused" wires.

Personally, I think it's better to just leave all the wires there and not worry about them. In your case they've been there for 30 years without bothering anybody.

I'm might be tempted to leave them. However they are the result of me removing a diesel heater in the rear so they are not attached to anything. They ran along the back of the bus on the floor up the side of the bus to a box located on the outside of the driver's seat. So I have about 26' of what looks like wire tape that is flat till it gets to that box and then it spreads out and it's connected to different little cubes in there by a female connector.

I left all of min intact except for the removal of the primary wire for the wheelchair lift. Hasn’t been a problem to leave it

Renogy asked for a video of the problem and a wiring diagram. Here is what I sent them in case anyone else wants to take a look. I threw the wiring diagram together just now, so I might have forgotten some details, but let me know if anything glaring is wrong.
