Replacing 7-pin Tow Cable on 377RLBH

On the first couple trips with our new coach last fall, the 7-pin tow vehicle connection cable was coming out of the MORryde the wrong way and got caught when turning sharp and shredded the cable - broke a few wires. I figured out why it happened and repaired the cable, but it's time to replace the whole thing.
The cable runs up into the the hitch and disappears into the coach - I have no idea where it goes and how to access the terminating ends so I can replace it.

Any ideas?

The best long term fix is to mount a std junction box up in the hitch area and terminate the stub in it leaving enough to splice your new pigtail in the box color for color.

There is likely another box up there somewhere but removing panels is not the easiest way. Just another thing that makes you wonder if anyone ever thought it would need to be replaced.

Next time it will be a piece of cake.

Take down the light beside the hitch. There is a 2" hole under it and you fish the wires out of the hole.

Assuming this is a fifth wheel, look under the bed, the wiring should terminate in a wood box. That is how my 28.5RKS was set up. I removed it and installed a double depth junction box up in the pin box area so that all repairs can be made from outside.

Some fivers are like that. NorthPoints are under the light.
