Wiring Question

Putting in a new 7 pin cable. The purple wire for back up lights, which I don't have, is connected to the electric brake wire running to the axles. Why????? I may use the purple for a camera or lights in the long run.

There is still the purple wire, disconnected, that runs with the wire loom to the back lights.

Any help on identifying this mess so I can do a clean cable management. Click image for larger version

Sad to see that they're still putting in crappy wiring. My 2016 GP wiring is just as unprofessional.

I especially appreciate that they didn't label anything in there either.

I am waiting to get down in to sunny weather then isolate each wire. My red/aux might be for the running lights. The loose purple wired for a back up cam later or at least a light. I just have to lay on my back, ouch.

Is it possible to get a relevant wiring diagram from ORV?

Yes they will send a diagram direct to an owner.

No it won’t completely explain what going on in the junction area in my experience. But it helps.

If I recall, the purple wire is from the switch to supply power to the breakaway switch. Yes, confirming, on my 2015 Creek Side, the purple wire comes from the "Batt" side of the 30a circuit breaker to the "in" side of the breakaway switch then out to the break wire, though it does come out as a black wire to where it ties in with the brake wire. I would assume that all the "7pin" wiring diagrams are reasonably similar or at least, that's been my observation. And yes, the yellow should always be the back up.

Good luck with your factory provided wiring diagram. I got the full set for my GP and found discrepancies right away. The quality of electrical work in these trailers is about on a first year apprentice level at best. They can't even cut holes for boxes or covers, they just drill out something close or knock a hole.

It is true that the factory wiring prints are somewhat faulty. They don't follow them exactly, and probably never update their drawing files. I only use them for reference. You are screwed if you don't know how to use a multi-meter.

And sadly they are better than many trailers. The industry as a whole is terrible where wiring is concerned. I had to rewire the brake connections almost immediately. A couple forest service roads was all it took to shake loose the terrible crimp connections.
