Wiring for 2011 Brookstone front jacks HELP

My Tech is having problems with the wiring going to the control remote brain to the front jacks to jack motor. The brain was fried so we got a new one from Lippert. Lippert doesn't have any wiring diagram. Forest River doesn't have wiring diagram, Coachman Doesn't have wiring diagram DAH how do they make these?
I need to know where the wires go from switch (orange wire, red wire, black wire, white wire) Motor is reversable I know black and white.
Can anyone help or have a number I can call. My tech and I have all the places above with no luck.
If someone can look in there 5r and tell me what wires are connected it would help.
We think what fried the brain was the lift motor for the front jacks

I am confused also but the tech has the wires on the box like the picture (he tells me) but can't figure out the wires to the front jacks switch. There are from what I remember a orange, white, red, black. He says the white should be ground but it's not. The white one is the one he is having trouble with, doesn't want to fry this box.
I know I asking alot but I need my trailer back and stop paying the $100+ an hour. I just need to know what colors are attached to each other from the switch to motor.

Thanks for the pictures! do you have hydraulic front jacks? I don't see the motor. You have the same year and model as mine and they have a whole different system. No wonder they don't have a schematic.
Thanks I will send these to my tech and see if it helps. What is the other box on the wall next to the remote mod?

My front jacks are hydraulic (6pt system). But I do have the older version with the square tubes with pins to pull for the adjustable legs, not the round tubes.

The other box is this:

My single hydralic pump (black) is on the right side, just above the hydralic tank (clear). It runs every hydraulic operation on the rig.

If you need more pics of something specific, let me know.

Thanks for taking the time to take pictures. So you don't have a switch on the outside of the unit that would have worked your front jacks?

Nope, no outside switch. I use the lippert pad for the 6pt and just the front jacks.
