Floor tile cable

I think I did it to myself again. Had a broken floor tile. I cut around the edges to take all the tile out. When all was out I noticed two wires were broken. The wires look like beaded cable and very small. I'm thinking part of the thermostat sending unit. So, now what. Can you splice them together? 2013 American Tradition.

You might want to check for current, I would think a splice will work.

I had to take out another cable to get the wires exposed. After that I discovered two more, total of 4, that need to be spliced. I don't think these wires are use to heat the floor because they are directly stapled to plywood.

floor cable

that sounds like part of the mesh for the tile adhesive.
it should not be a problem to just cover it up.

Do you have heated floors in this 2013 Tradition? If not, just cover with tile adhesive and don't worry. If yes, try spicing them. If the floor heats up, you did good. If not, you destroyed your heated floor feature.

Take a look at Aries Engineering Manufacturer of Gold Heat and Black Gold In-Floor Radiant Heat Systems | Your source for radiant floor heat for motor coaches, homes and commercial buildings, on that site you will find a service e-mail. Contact them for some help; it sounds like a thermostat wire?? At any rate you cannot just solder in place, especially if you have a broken grid. Those grids are repairable with a kit, not sure of the thermostat wire if that is what it is. Contact the company for assistance, for sure.

Think I could just use any wire a little larger than whats there? I'm short about 12" to make the connection. Now I have 8 wires to splice. I had to take 4 tiles out. Lucky for me Fleetwood included two boxes of tile with the RV.
