I can't believe I broke another wiring harness!?!?!?

Now if anyone has any questions about the wire going from the trailer to the truck. I now have some more experience replacing them :-(

First time back in June, I pinched the cable while jacking Trailer up. Then this past week, I did a really tight turn and didn't have enough slack in the cable, cable was sliced almost completely in half.

Now, here's some important info for any of you that do the same dumb thing I did (twice). When you pick up a replacement cable (unless you get a Jayco Cable), make sure you have your User manual wiring diagram, and the wiring cable diagram that comes with the replacement cable. BECAUSE the wire colours don't always match up with the replacement generic cables! The
first replacement cable, I had to go green to brown and vice versa. Now the second replacement cable the colours did match up. If your wondering about cost, it was about $40 cdn each time. Time to do it, first time 90 mins, second time 30 mins. Cut my install time (oh, cut would be the wrong word ;-( ), reduced the time by 60 minutes ;-)))

We fixed the broken cable, so I now have a spare :-)

You are clearly becoming an expert MisterUg after two similar repairs. The third one`s a charm!

Been there...done the pinch! I was able to splice it back together and seal it all up but I plan to replace in the future. That is one of those things that really makes you mad lol....

I did that 2 years ago... now I zip tie my cord to the weight jacker bar. One zip tie each time sure beats no brakes..
