Does any one have any knowlage about a class B Diamond motor home? I have one and cant seem to find anything on this unit. It seems to be all electric with the exceptions of the cook top and furnace. It does have however, a marine type toilet, which has no holding tank as we know. It dumps direct from the internal tank in the toilet. Also their is no gray water tank just a hose connection that lets the water run out on the ground. Is that legal ? The water pump pumps water direct to the kitchen sink, it has a toggle switch that turns it on. I do how ever have a roof air conditioner. We had to build a dinet that makes into a bed, as it didn't have one. Also their is no water heater. If any one has any information about this unit please let me know as I sure need some advice. Thank you.

From what I found on the web it was made by Coons Mfg. Inc. which later became Diamond Coach Corporation.

It is pre-internet era so it is going to be hard to find out much.

You may be able to make an appointment with an RV repair shop, and pay a small fee, to have them put the rig on a lift, and explain what all the parts are, and how they work. Inside also. Things like the black & gray tanks, refrigerator, inverter, etc.....

It would be worth $50 - $100 to know what you have, and how it works. They may also have access to manuals for your installed equipment, and/or the Diamond RV manual.
