What is the purpose for this unused connector?
« on: November 05, 2017, 08:53:52 AM »
When I was working behind my "One Place" I noticed a large and unused 16-pin connector.  Looking over the on-line wiring diagrams that John Canfield posted for Winnebago I was unable to find a purpose for this connector, but I am sure that it was not put there for no reason at all.  Perhaps someone here knows it's function.

Do you have a link to the wiring schematic?

My guess would be speaker connections for a surround sound system. It is SOP to use a wire cable that has connections for all the options whether they are used or not. Undoubtedly your RV has a lot more unused connectors you have not found yet.
I would like to apologize to anyone I have not yet offended. Please be patient and I will get to you shortly.

It looks like the connector used for a Onan EC30 Automatic Generator Start.

Make note of the labels on each of the wires in the connector and check them in the Wiring Identification Guide.  That should give you a good idea of what it's for.
