Question wiring harness for Jayco223 fifth wheel

Hi I recently bought a trailer and because of the snow could not get under it .So while trying to get the electric brakes to work and no results I finally crawled under and found the previous owner had cut all wires at each brake drum. Question do I try to run wires or buy a new harness for trailer Thanks for your input Richard G.

The tightwad in me says ... I'd just splice and well insulate from moisture, then test.


This made me question WHY he did this. One possible idea is maybe he had pulled the emergency brake wire which locked them up, and not knowing any better that was his way of freeing them up for travel???

Unhappy jayco trailer electric brakes

Well under closer inspection the wires aren't all cut off but there are some cut wires and the drum I did take off was locked up so I guess I'll have to go thru one at a time and figure it out .Thanks for your response

Wonder if a "critter" got to the wires. (Squirrel, rat)

The butler did it, in the library with a candlestick.

Question wiring for brakes

Got the wires fixed yesterday easy enough fix. Now a question I was wondering if I need a tripod on the fifth wheel for stability. Will the 325 lbs. my wife and I will add to the front make it front heavy Thanks Richard

I don't use a tripod but I see lots of em in CG's. They're mostly to take the "shake" out and stabilize.
