Is that pic near the water valves? Or more towards the front towards the battery?

Then the wire runs to the battery area and attaches to a breaker then off to the disconnect switch where a bunch of 12v wires meet before heading off to the battery. The Eagle HT might be wired differently, but you're still going to have that breaker and the wire coming from where ever they hid your wires.
I still think you're going to have an 8ga. Look for a red 8ga wire attached to a breaker.

I'm not sure which ends you are looking for, but according to Jayco standards and options it has roof top and ground Solar Prep.
As I was told by a Jayco salesman the ground connection is for a smaller system that is plugged in and unplugged, for that they use a small ASE connector mounted at about hip to waist height somewhere toward the front.

Now the roof top should be for a more permanent solar panel with the MC4 connector and the GoPower template.

As for the other end it should be very close to the batteries but not connected to the batteries as you should be installing a solar charge controller between the end of the leads and the battery.
I would start at the batteries and follow the wires back to the 120 to 12 volt converter/charger, hopefully you will find the solar prep wires tagged and hung on a nail in with all the other wires.

If you would like to skype me when you are at the camper some time we can go thru it together, as sometimes it's just a matter of knowing what you are seeing. It took me ages to find the roof end of the solar prep wires in my 2004 Designer.
