Help with water Heater wiring

So I replaced the water heater in my 2013 32TSBH. I've goofed on the thermostat wiring somehow. I took pictures before hand. I'm guessing my 2 year old cleared them out. (That's my story... I am sticking to it).

I have. Black, white and white/red coming down to the blower unit under the water heater. Guessing the thinner white/red is the thermostat. I have two blue wires both labeled thermostat coming up from the blower. Lastly I have a black wire labeled "-12VDC" and a red labeled "+12VDC". I can't figure these out. Any help?

Welcome to JOF

While waiting for JOF member responses, I would contact Jayco directly with your question, and they can forward you an electrical wiring schematic for your model TT (have your TT S/N handy).

Also, a pic of the area of the wires in question may be helpful....., a member with a similar model TT can check their wire color coding and connection points.

I did an R&R on my HWH recently but wires associated to my furnace (wall thermostat, blower, etc.) didn't come into play.

Thanks for the reply! I actually went through all my manuals yesterday. Apparently when I replaced it I didn't need to disconnect those furnace wires and I remember thinking that after the fact... A caveat of taking a 2 month break to finish a project. Using the wiring diagrams I was able to figure out that I had the thermostat wires swapped. There was a mysterious white wire not on the schematic. Jayco must have run out of red that day. 😂 Regardless, all fixed and functional!!
