That looks like a device ground. Maybe jacks or something similar?

Did you open up the wire loom and see if there's a wire in there that's not connected to anything?

Yes. The wire loom has a brown wire in it that runs from the junction box to the back of the trailer. Doesn't seem like this wire goes in there. I've stretched it out trying to figure out what it would reach and where it would come from. I thought maybe someone with the same camper could tell me for sure where it goes.

It's a ground. Where does the other end attach? I had intermetiace 12v problems; was a weak ground to frame.

Looks like it might be the ground for the breakaway switch. On my similar trailer, the breakaway box is located inboard on the right side frame just behind the tongue.

It sounds like the 7 pin is providing ground from you tow vehicle (TV) to these devices. Now I don't have power stab jacks, but my slide and awning grounds are not at the front of the trailer.

But, if something is grounded on the back side of the frame; towards the rear, I have never seen it.

If that wire and another was in the same end of a butt splice and got ripped out it might why connections seem intact. Maybe towards a stab jack OR switch for the stablizer... wild guessing here.

Trying to figure the angle of the photo. Why am I seeing the battery on what appears to be a frame rail?

WolfWhistle, I think what you are looking at is the front frame rail that the electric and lp gas lines are run thru. Batteries must be on a rack in front of that. Like others, it's hard to say what that brown wire is a ground for without seeing more than what the picture shows. Need to see another picture to the right of the first picture, who knows?

I think if it is a ground wire, you would get a voltage reading of 0, not 12v. You'd get 12v if it was a hot wire.

I haven't called dealer yet. May try them Monday. I'm fairly mechanicaly inclined, figured I could figure it out myself, but no luck, lol. Thanks for all the input, I'll try and add some better pics when i get off work. It won't reach the stab jack motor, don't think it's meant to go all the way to the back where the tanks are.
