1985 Hideaway wiring question
« on: May 18, 2014, 08:41:14 PM »
My retired neighbor bought a 1985 Hideaway. We are trying to wire it to the truck and there are 6 wires we need to use:

one brown with a green tracer
tan with white stripe
black (this one is a little thicker)
White with yellow tracer (this one is thicker too)

Any suggestions would be very much appreciated

The big white and black wire are most likely go to the campers batteries so it can charge off the truck.  The other 4 should be a stardard trailer brake light setup.  You can use a volt ohm meeter to find the ground.  It will be the one that ohms out yo the chassis..   then its just a matter of powering up the others and see what light up
