Fresh water tank wiring help

I recently purchased a 2008 Coachmen travel trailer. The wires at the fresh water tank had been apparently caught on something and have been pulled apart. If someone could help me on how to wire them back up, I would greatly appreciate it. The attached pic shows exactly how it was when I got it.

Thanks for the help

The green, yellow and orange wires go to the sensors. The wire at the bottom right on the tank has been completely stripped off. The two white wires were twisted together. The blue/yellow wire coming out of the plastic tube with the white ones was just dangling.

That's what you need. Yours is gone.

since i thinking most makers wire things different because yours is not wired like mine the first thing to do is seprate the wire looms ( plastic tubes) then pull the wires out thru the slit. it looks like the wires have been butt spliced before and have been pulled out. the wires they connect to should be up in the looms. when you get the wires out just re-butt splice color to color. the white wires look like they were wire nutted together and may not even go to the tank as they look like a different gauge. i also see one wire hanging towards the bottom back of the tank that the white one may go to, i cant tell what color it is. Since these are in the weather and apt to get wet i would suggest using some heat shrink tubing over the splices, this helps keep moisture and dirt from corroding the connection.

I hope this helps even a little in getting you going.

If you have a monitor panel like I showed, (as most do), it's wired all the same. All of them.
Two wires going to the set. One ground wire to the "empty" white wire. Then one hot wire for the 1/3, 2/3, F wires and the coupler they are attached to.

Yes. Thank you. I think I got it figured out. All of the sensor wires go together and tie into the signal wire from the wire loom. In my case, the blue/yellow wire. I checked continuity with the two white wires that were twisted together. They are tied to chassis ground. I ran a new wire from that sheered off one on the bottom right of the tank and ran it to those white ones. I think I'm good to go.

Thanks for the help
