Doggie Door Installation Susan Ketchum 12-9-16  
We are full time RVers and have a 1996 Jayco 3530RL Designer Series fifth wheel. We have puppies and a 20 x 30
doggie area with the fencing just about flush with the slides. We want to cut a doggie door into the dining area slide
but are concerned about hitting a water or electrical line. How can we find a schematic showing where these lines
would be so we don't damage anything. We'll cut the fencing the same size as the opening for the door and provide
the puppies a small landing and ramp so that they can go outside anytime they want to.

Thanks for any input.

Hi Susan, sorry there are no schematics from the manufacturer. There shouldn't be any water lines in the walls. A stud finder with electric detection would be a way to find wires. They are available at Home Depot, Lowes etc. for under $20. I'd still kill the power to the unit before cutting into the wall. If you do cut a wire it can be spliced. Hope your pups enjoy their door! Good luck
