'89 Excella, Mystery wire bundle, hitch area, photos
Short story, always been a large mass of wires just outside the tank housing, lots of tape. PO seems to have been a genius at rapid engineering with tape.
Anyway, electric lift motor on the jack has always had a loose ground ever since I purchased the Excella, and today it was very cranky, have to jiggle and what not to get it going. Once hooked up it's fine, until you want to drop it again. So I started tightening up the bolts, and discovered his nibs had messed with the mount for the break a way plug, and the tape mass was in the way, so I got after it! Prior to me untaping it, there had been 3 or 4 wires coming from one end of the tape bundle, 1 of which goes to the jack motor, this one I understand, the others are a mystery to me.
Obviously there used to be something wired in up near the hitch point,,,, automatic brake sensors???? Anyway, my thought is to just do away with all the unattached wires, and simplify that mass, loosing at least 5 pounds of tape in the process. ( wish I'd taken a pic of the tape bundle, but at that point I didn't think I'd need your thoughts)
So,,,, any reason not to take the wire clippers to this mess so that I just wind up with wires that go someplace and do something??
Thanks for your time, cheers
