Keep in mind that a manufacturer is not going to shut down the assembly line because they ran out of a colored wire or two...which happens when say, a typhoon hits an area of the world that produces the raw materials that create a certain color. They are going to use whatever they have on hand as a replacement.

So, while diagrams that indicate color are a useful guide, you shouldn't bank on them being exactly as indicated in all cases in your RV.

The quickest method to determine 12 VDC positive and negative wires is using a DVOM meter.

It will never lie.

Best thing to do is to check out the wiring with a volt meter. I have seen both white and black used for positive.

In general, these are the color codes used in the industry. As others have stated your coach may differ, so always check with your meter before adding or troubleshooting anything.

The chassis wiring is per manufacturer, always check with them for a diagram. Mostly they mark wires with a number and all the wires may even be the same color.

If you have a Gasser: Ford, Chevy, Dodge etc. then they use wires with colored stripes and such. Only a diagram will make any sense for these.

12 volts, DC
red: positive
black: negative

120 volts, AC
black: positive
white: neutral
green or bare: ground

120/240 volts combination, AC two phase (so called 50AMP shore power)
black: positive
red: positive
white: neutral
green or bare: ground

240 volts and higher, AC, single phase (rare in a RV)
black: positive
white: positive
green or bare: ground

240 volts and higher, AC, 3 phase (even rarer in a RV)
black: positive
white: positive
red: positive
green or bare: ground

12 volts, DC, trailer highway light, brake and battery charge system
white: ground
brown: tail
green: right stop/turn
yellow: left stop/turn
blue: brake feed
red: 12vdc+ battery charge
black: accessory, not usually used, can be used for backup lights
