We don't have our coach yet, but would like to wire the towed. How is 6-pin tow plug wired on the Alpine Coach? Although the Alpine Coach has amber turn signals, does the 6-pin tow plug have the typical wiring:
1. Left turn/brake
2. Ground
3. Tail light
4.
5. Right turn/brake
6.

This information is in your owners manual. The left and right turn signals are split off. I do not know the exact pin-out for the connector. My coach is currently in the shop or I would look the information up for you.

12 O'clock Right Turn wire 1004
2 Left Turn 1003
5 Tail/ Marker 1008
7 Stop/Brake 52
9 Auxiliary 1149
Center Ground 1435

The diagram did not have the number sequence of the pins so I gave you clock positions. This is for a 05.

they are all same. This would be for your Jeep as well. I will be using aux for charging the toad. As long as you wire the toad correct, you will be ok from the Alpine side.
Good luck.

David - The pinout you give in the link is not the same as what Alpine publishes. WRV sent us a copy of our 06 pinout, and it matches what Wayne posted above. (Thanks Wayne).

Apparently Alpine does not use a "standard" pinout for a 6-way connector.

We're wiring our own jeep, so we will match our plug to be the mirror image of the Alpine connector.

Hmmm, funny, mine works. Maybe they changed to for 2006. Mine is 2005.

Hmmm - can't explain that! This is very confusing. Wayne's pinout above is for a 2005, and it matches what WRV faxed us for the 2006.

For example, with Alpine the center pin is ground. In the link you posted the center pin is 12V. Pretty significant difference.

Scratching our heads.
-------------------------------------------
Update: OK - see you talked to Mark now. Glad you checked.

Hi David - well the plot thickens!

Just got a call from Mark at WRV this morning. Engineering called him about the pinout. Ground and auxiliary are reversed from what is printed in the manual. Sorry, don't know if this is just on the 2006 or what.

Well, we're wiring up the toad connector today, and we'll just check the pinout on the Alpine coach when it arrives. Fortunately the way our connector is designed it's easy to rewire if necessary.

Well he tried to FAX us a revision too - but we didn't have the computer on to receive the fax. Then by phone he told us the only difference was that auxiliary was the center pin, and ground was where auxiliary was before.

Is that the only difference you see with the revision?

Yeah - ultimately that seems like the only reliable solution!
