Question White Rogers Solenoid 200

When it comes to wires I am not good, but the unthinkable happened when I rewired a new solenoid one of the 3 small wires did not get back in place and I found it hanging.
That one wire looks to be black and can only go to little or big post.
This is a hr endeavor 1998 pusher.
Have read a lot of posts but never joined , been camping for years but as time go by more things happen.
Thanks in advance slowdown

I've only seen that solenoid with 4 wires- 2 larger are power in and Power out when activated, the 2 smaller post are for Ground and the other is B+ like in activated by a sw. to send power out.
1- see if that wire is B+ when activated by a switch if not it may be a ground. I would find a wiring print of your Coach to confirm that.

I can't believe you posted so many times, asked for pics by others and you don't bother to post one.

Give us break already

If it has a large lug then it should go on large post.

They cost more than small ones so manufacturer would have used small if it could have...

So it either fits the battery side to supply power to a switch, or the output side to provide switched power or maybe ground.

Locate a small fuse from your loose supplies just for caution then hold wire against all possible positions with fuse between wire and spot.

Have helper activate the selenoid via the control.

If fuse blows then wrong spot or too small...flashing indicates wrong spot while just opening indicates maybe too small.

When it works properly then that is the spot.

Always try to take photos now as almost every phone has a camera and most folks have a digital camera or can get one for a few bucks.

Here is a picture of my electrical bay with the relay you are talking about, it is item 3.

I took some pictures of the wiring, the small wires
  1. White attached to small terminal, probably ground
  2. Purple attached to opposite small terminal, probably switch
  3. Black wire is attach to the same terminal the House 12 Volt large cable is, you can't hardly see in pictures, it comes from the battery maintainer, it is the only one with a single large red wire.
  4. The side with 2 large red wires comes from the Chassis battery cut off, which is orange in color (replaced recently).

Hope this helps

Can you trace the brown/black wire to it's origin, my black wire comes goes to the battery maintainer. See attachment, it is the #3 item.
