Before or after I cut it I'd get the cover off and see where it goes.
After looking on the website for Magnetek to see if I could identify the wire, (no help) and then calling the engineer at Magnetek, who could find any documentation on an extra wire coming out of a 900 series, I did what any smart Airstream owner would do. I read the forum for about an hour. With a little investigative work and some simple test with the handy tester I was able to deduce that it was the 12v
power line to the indicator light on the information center above the stove. It seems that Magnetek may have been producing these especially for AS back in the day. I found a nice diagram of a work around where you have a small 12v
charger that you plug into the 110 outlet with the new power supply to power the little red light as it should. I did not copy the link last night and now can not find the correct link, Here is another posting that describes the situation a little better but does not have the nifty drawing that I saw.
Thanks to all who keep the forum a place to come get the questions answered. Once again it shows that the collective experience and education can solve lots of mysteries. Glad this is a place where we all work together.
Thanks again to LFC, The Converter/Charger works great so far and is so much quieter.
