Question Unknown wiring

Just got done removing my Saburban Furnace for cleaning. It had been intermitant in ignition. Still couldn't figure out how to take the heating element out of the chasis. While I was on my knees, I noticed a set of wires coming out of the wall below the oven that were not used. They had just been taped off and back. They appear to be 30 AWG and are (1) orange, (1)white. Two wires. They come through the wall where the wiring for the furnace comes through. Is there anyone out there that can tell me what they were intended for?

Could it be the thermostat wires? Some old thermostats only had two conductors.

Is the oven an original Magic Chef?

If it is an Atwood model it is not OEM. The OEM oven had a 12 VDC light that those wires would have been connected to.

Do you have the switch for the outside light over the door? Seems like that wiring comes in there. The switch is mounted on the end of the galley cabinet, just next to the door.

Just took a minute to look at the stove. It is a Magic Chef Mod: BT18LA-4. Unfortunately I do not see a light. Could this model not have come with a light?

The OEM Magic Chef had a red push button switch that was for the light. It was with all the other knobs. It could be that the stove was replaced at some point in the coach's life so far, but the new one has no light. Do the wires have 12 VDC on them?

No they don't. I'm going to take a voltage reading and I'll let you know what they are. Thank you for your reply!

Fallman, the power and ground for our 12 volt propane gas detector pass that way, and the detector is at the bottom of the bulkhead on the left as you enter the trailer door. Nick.

If you want a wiring diagram for your airstreem i have it. My 85 is same as your unit. Just e mail me at gmby@netptc.net and I will make a copy from my owners manual. Please let me have your home address so I can mail it.
Regards Rusell
