Talking 65 caravel where do hitch wires go?

trying to get my 65 caravel lights working. brake lights and turn signals work. running lights and marker lights don't.
so i am trying to trace the wires back from the plug. where do they go after the go in the frame? where would i find the spot where they split up to go up to the top for the marker lights (which must have been added although it sure looks original)
where is there access to the bundle and blocks for split offs?

After they go into the A-frame, they go down the curb side of the A-frame to a point a couple of feet behind the front wall of the trailer. There is a small square cover on the belly pan that has all the connections, plus a self-resetting breaker.

Meddle not in the affairs of dragons, for you are crunchy, and taste good with ketchup.

Check the back storage


I don't know if this was the original location, but my wires came out of the bellypan, into the rear storage compartment, then up into the back wall of the trailer. Flip up the aluminum cover of the rear bumper compartment and look to the right (as you face the back of the trailer) They came through a small opening in the frame, on the back wall of the storage compartment.

Like I said, the wires were replaced, so I'm not sure what was original.

Good luck, it's a PITA.

Hint: The green wire is for your running lights, this wiring diagram should help.
