Tongue Jack wire on '70s AS ?

Trying to finish up my 78' AS Safari project and getting to the tung jack. Could anyone look and see how their wires are up front on the trailer? I have one wire coming down for the tung jack (going nowhere), then two wires off the kill switch, then two wires coming out of the frame, one connected to the kill switch, the other I assume connects to the other kill switch wire. Where does the tung jack connect? Is there a wire missing that goes to the battery? Or does one of the two wires coming out of the frame serve double duty?
Any help would be appreciated.
Thanks, John.

You should have three wires coming from inside the shell.

1. 12V for the tongue jack -- this power comes through a thermal circuit breaker, which resets after 20-30 seconds.

2. 12V from the battery to the breakaway switch.

3. Wire going back from the breakaway switch to the brakes.

I have a new jack. The one wire goes to the battery/charge wire. The breakaway is also on the same connection. The ground is the mount to the tongue.

My jack wire I believe was Orange. The PO took the electric jack off cause He thought it Bad. I found a bad Breaker. CONSULT your service manual or maybe someone has one they can tell ya what color.
