Bed Light cable on SV235RKS

The previous owner apparently broke the cable by bringing the slide in while the plug was connected. So, I don't know whether this is the original cable and jack or if he made it work with what he had. Does anyone have picture of the original plug and connector/jack for this light connection?

The one we have now appears to be a microphone jack and plug. I am sure it is rated for the minimal amperage that the two bulbs pull, but I am not sure it is original to the trailer.

Here's the end of the cable on the bed. Unfortunately the bed's in so getting the female connector is a little more difficult but let me know if you need it as well.

Update/Correction:
So, after a little more research . . .

This thing is not only 14 gauge wired 12V rated, but is indeed a "Bunk Light Adapter" capable of supporting two bulbs or a bulb and fan combo.

It turns out the only real problem was/is the scary looking wiring connection (done by the previous owner) in the second photo. Why it was cut so close to the plug is beyond me. I ordered one of the lights and will make a clean splice connection using that cord this time.

UPDATE

I am just getting around to fixing this permanently after the long winter. I was never able to find the stock connectors locally and I was afraid they would just get ripped off again without some improvement to the way it functions.

My solution was to buy a "bed fan/light" similar to this one. http://tweetys.com/images/products/d...58310_silo.jpg
I simply removed the properly rated cord from this fan/light for use with the slide bed light and the existing bunk light adapter that the previous owner installed.

The slide now operates freely whether the stretchy cable is plugged in or not.
