'67 Safari lighting harness end?

My 67 has had the ext light wiring harness modified by a less than qualified individual. On my 71 theres a round connector on the tongue end of the body...what should my 67 have? Obviously theres no connector on the body, what should this unit have and where should the bundle run from/to? Currently, it has the 4 flat connector, the bundle is run through a hole in hte frame, by the lp cans. The wires are 'enclosed' in a length of GARDEN HOSE run under the trailer along side the copper lp pipe. Any one have any pics of HOW it should look...??

There should be an access panel in the belly pan. I can't see what you have but, It should be about a foot in on the same side the wires are. Put on a connector that is a good fit for your tow vehicle.

Well mine runs through the frame to an access panel in the underbelly, about a foot square, near the front. Inside is the conections for the lights.
The truck end has a 7 flat pin connector for the truck.
Too much snow right now to get a picture.

You should be able to run that inside the frame channel right by the jack (from underneith) and once inside that little access hole you'll see the frame has an opening for the wires to come out. Local RV shop should have that plug end with a nice pigtail on it long enough to get it back there. Just feed it back and rewire and you should be good to go.

Our 66 was wired delux when we brought it home, 2 orange extension cords ziptied to the propane lines with the ends hacked off, run externally up the back ofthe trailer and wired in behind the lenses, and up front twisted together and hooked to a 4 flat. I feel your pain! BTW don't have your head under that cover when you pull it off
