Default Wiring Diagram

I have a 2003 Springdale 286rlds. While returning home from Bath, NY last week someone lost a metal pole in the road. I swerved to avoid it, but ran over with trailer. The only damage was some wires were ripped apart. I have figured out a couple but there is four wires that are together as one that was broken apart. One end goes through the floor on the right side near the axles. I have no idea where the other end goes. Any help is appreciated.

If I had to guess I would say that these are the electric brake wires, I'm assuming here that the brakes don't work. Keystone usually runs the brake wires through the underbelly and they exit it at one side of each axle (mine is on the left looking forward) there usually is a brake wire running through the axle to get to the other side and at both sides these wires connect to the wires coming out from the wheel brake magnets. Check to make sure that your brakes work by manually operating your brake controller from the TV, the brakes should pull up, again I don't know that this is the case, I'm just guessing.

It's definetly not the brakes. All the lights and brakes work. Everything off the 12 v system works. I have not plugged in to 120 volt house line yet. I didn't want to start a fire.

Well then my next question is: Do both of the slides work? They should operate on 12vdc.

Yes the slides work off the battery, all the inside lights work. Like I said the only thing I didn't do was plug the trailer in at my house. Everything seems to work off the 12 v system. I tried calling Keystone CS to see if I could get a wiring diagram, but they haven't returned my call. Thanks for the response.

What kind of mileage do you get with your 5.7 Tundra? I have the next size down and mileage isn't that great, about 8 MPG.

I get 12mpg towing the Passport and 20mpg when I'm not towing, it drops down to about 17 or 18 in city traffic (I hate sitting at a light knowing that I'm wasting gas!), when I'm towing I turn on the tow/haul switch and use selective shift to restrict the tranny gears to 5, I find that that gives me the best mileage.
