2001FR Model 1610 PUP Wiring

Q: Does anyone have a wiring schematic that they'd be willing to share?

Or,

Can anyone shed some light on what color wire indicates what? (ie, red="hot", white=Ground/common, etc.)

PLEASE and THANK YOU!

Doesn't exist.
Hopefully another popup owner can help you, but that's a 15 year old camper. Not sure if anyone here has a FR popup that old.

No guarantees that the factory or a previous owner wired according to any known color scheme. That said:

white/black are commonly used for ground. When black is used for ground, red is usually used for positive (typical marine/automotive 12V wiring). When white is used for ground, almost any color - except red - is used for positive (RV cheap). Where it gets confusing is that I have seen some RV 12V wiring with black positive, white for negative/ground.

On 120V AC circuits, the household standard should apply: Black - hot, white - neutral, green - ground. Red is used for multiple switches controlling a single light or accessory (not used in A-frames or PUPs).

The problem is that RVs have both 120V AC and 12V DC circuits. All too often, the dude doing the wiring or preparing a wiring harness doesn't take the time to switch color coding schemes. A meter is the best way to confirm what wires actually do what.
