2008 Jay Series 1006 Battery

I have a 2008 Jay Series 1006 that I would like to install an aux battery in to allow the trailer breakaway switch to be functional.

The popup currently has an empty battery box installed on the tongue, however there are no battery cables ran to the box.

The manual states that the battery is customer supplied, I guess that includes the cables as well.

Does anyone have any insight into which circuit to hook the battery into, or possible have a wiring diagram for the trailer?

Your 1006 has (had?) a 20 amp converter and 16000btu gas furnace plus ceiling lights and probably an awning light. Sometime in the past someone either took it off or hid it away under something.

In order to boon dock with lights and furnace you will need to restore the connections and get a battery and box. Jayco customer service may be able to give you a wiring diagram. Take a look under front for wires tucked up somewhere. Lots of good you-tubes on batteries, wiring and similar.
