Tail light wire routing

I'm having issues with my 07 classic 30 were the right rear tail light is not working. Neither the brake or the blinker.

I've checked the wiring inside the coach under the sofa and the signal is there. It appears that in the back the red wire is not connected any longer. I ohmed the led panels and on the left side I am getting 65 ohms between white and red wires where on the right side I am getting nothing infinity. The black and white wires ohm out the same on both sides.

I tried to remove the tail lights to get at the wiring, but it appears that I can't do that. There doesn't seem like there is any other access to the wiring in the back unless someone knows a few tricks.

I found an access panel under the storage compartment in the back on the left side of the coach. In it were a few bundles of cables one of which is the tail light wiring and a connector. I need to get at the rest of the wiring and possibly pull in a new wire to replace the broken one. I'm hoping someone out there has been down this road before me and could help me out.

Looking forward to your replies.
Walt

Looks like it was the connector in the back that had come apart that was the issue. I ohmed out the entire circuit and made a schematic for my future reference.

I'm glad there wasn't a broken wire and that it was just the connector. I think I will tap the connector together to keep it from coming apart on rough roads.

Very nice diagram. Could you give the locations of the terminal and the connector?
