Hello- Welcome to FTE! I have moved your post to the specialized forum we have here for your question. Check out the list of tech forums we have here. There is a wealth of information and expertise here to help you. There are a number of links in my sig below to help you also. Have fun!
A couple of things about motorhomes in general. A 1979 RV is just as likely to be riding on a 1978 truck. Just so you are aware. For an RV this old, I wouldn't bother trying to find a coach manual for the specific model. Who knows how many modifications have been made. Consider looking for a manual for a Coachman or a Fleetwood from the same era. The houses are all pretty much the same. They all use the same basic stuff. And the rest you will figure out. Make friends with your local neighborhood RV repair shop. A good inspection will take you a long way.
What engine do you have? All my gassers had 460s.

It wouldn't be fun if it were easy, but does it have to be this much fun?
I don't know when I realized that I had grown up, but I'm not happy about it.
Try going to RV.net, in the motorhome section. They may be able to at least direct you to a more appropriate place to search. Rollalong was a high end brand, but the basics of it were the same as others. They pretty much all used the same appliances, lighting, etc. The real difference is the body of the motorhome itself. Most times a wiring diagram is almost impossible to find, as well as the construction drawings of the frame of the motorhome, but again, perhaps the folks on RV.net can better direct you.
(Ok I keep getting logged out of this website, so I'll try posting again.)
As we were cleaning our new acquisition, I did find the battered and war-torn original owners manual for the roll-a-long!
I have scanned it as a backup for myself.
I will post pictures when we finish, ahem, scrubbing the moss off of it! It was parked in a swamp for the last two years here in Oregon, and I was crawling all around under it to get the lights working enough to take it on the road. (picture Luke Skywalker working on his X-wing in Dagoba.)
