FR Rockwood rear jacks

Iíve got a 2012 FR Rockwood Ultra Lite 5th wheeler that has the outside rear jack switch bypassed by the previous owner. I have the new switch but donít know which wire goes on which terminal on the new switch. Does anyone know where I can get a wiring diagram so I can get this new switch installed. Thanks.

It really doesn't matter which wire to to which terminal if you wire it and hit the up and the stabilizer goes down turn the switch around or change the wires around. How was that switch bypassed do you mean the wires were just disconnected.

Here is a basic wiring diagram for a 4 wire switch for a motorized electric jacks.
You still will have to figure out the power + positive (RED) and - Negative (BLACK) from the battery.

Anyway this will give you a basic idea what you are working with.

Good luck

The op's probably already got this figured out, but for future lookers.

Those switches are DPDT (double pole, double throw) return to center switches. In order to reverse polarity they need to be wired a certain way.

I've attached how the switch is wired on the back. Use this and Iggy's diagram and you should be able to wire it correctly.

If you find that up is down and down is up, just reverse the positive and negative on the back of the switch.
