Finding Wire in Fleetwood

I had a packrat make a nest on the motor in my Fleetwood Terra and he added a chewed off piece of wire to the nest. I have not been able to find out where the wire came from. The wire is black, about 8 inches long and is labeled with what appears to be "150FF Ground" and is inside of a plastic wire protector. I don't have a wiring diagram, and am not sure if that would help. Anyone have any clues?
It is a 2007 model on a Workhorse chassis with the 8.1 L engine.

I suggest you give Fleetwood customer service a call first thing Monday morning. You'll need your vin number.

Welcome to irv2.
What is not working on coach. May not have anything to do with a chassis problem but something may not work in your coach. Try systems to test, a missing ground wire, a item will not work.

Thanks for the idea, I'll try to see if something in the coach isn't working. I should have thought of that, but I am too close to the problem.

Thanks for the ideas. Finally found where the wire came from. It was a ground wire that went to the headlight area. Not sure what it actually connected to, but found where it was chewed off. At same time I found where mice had gotten into the coach. They went up the gap where the wires go up from the general area of the headlight up to the top of the coach. I guess you could call it the outside windshield post. They had a regular path and a major nest behind the TV. Foamed the gap on both sides and cleaned out the nest. Don't have the mouse smell any more.
