Power gear jacks

Whilst diagnosing problems with my power gear leveling system I noticed this connected to the left side of the solenoid but no wire attached to it- what’s it for?Click image for larger version

First off, Welcome to IRV2!

The solenoid powers something, either the pump or a motor. One of the wires will go to the motor/pump and the other to a main power source.

I know, when I removed the main power leads I found this remnant of some sort of connection underneath. Does anyone else have this?

It could be as simple as someone doing a sloppy repair, perhaps replacing a cable that was pulled out of the connector and not bothering to remove the connector from the solenoid. In that I can see a cable lurking behind your hand and can guess that it was previously connected to the solenoid, I'm thinking that orphaned connector has nothing to do with your current problem. It is unlikely that there needs to be two cables attached to that post on the solenoid.

Looks to me like it should connect to the other top post on the solenoid but the nut is missing. My 98 Seabreeze has wires connected on both terminals.
