Loose wire

I have a 2007 Georgetown 359TS. Under the entry step, where the batteries are located, I was cleaning the topping up the batteries when I found a heavy gage green wire that was not connected to anything. I'm sure it needed to be connected, does anyone know if it is positive or a negative ground? Power in the MH is working so I'm not sure what it is for.

Usually color green wire is ground. I would try and follow to make sure.

I would not make the assumption that green is ground. The rv industry does not seem to follow industry standards for color when it come to wiring. I would follow it to its source or try to measure resistance to the frame.

I have several unused wires hanging from a bundle of wiring in that area. Sometime harnesses are made up to be used for a variety of models and some wires aren't needed for all models. Everything works so I ignore the extras.

Thank you for your replies. Because the wire appears to be ground, because the wire appears to run near the negative side of the batteries, and because it has a connector on it, I will attach it to the negative ground next time I am in the MH. Will let everyone know how I make out.
