Dometic 2510 wiring question

Below is a picture of the DC wiring block. The black and white wire to the left or a heavier gauge, maybe 8 or 10 gauge stranded wire.the set in center is perhaps 14ga. Question - why do I have two sets of wires? I feel like I should only have one set.

It looks to me that some PO has added the white wire to go to something else.

The larger black wire is most likely + 12 volts, the larger white wire is the - 12 volts. The smaller brown (?) and green wires most likely go to the refrigerator electrics. The white wire which goes to the splice is picking up +12 volts for something, and the other wire connected to the terminal with the phillips head screw holding it is being used as the -12 volts for whatever that wire set goes to.

I think if you trace the white covered wire set, you will find some 12 volt load attached to them, so they are a using pair, not a supply pair.

Hello NJtoNC:

My 2510 Dometic runs on either 110 Volts or Propane. One set of wires carries the 110 Volts for that heating element. The other set of wires carries 12 Volts to operate the ignighter that start your propane flame.

Happy trailering!

Idroba - that makes the most sense. I bought the fridge used so all 12v wires were cut off. Thanks very much.

I was going,to remove my 12v charger to put a switch there but there's no power to it! Guess Thats the next hurdle. Thanks again.
