2000 safari 25 wiring

Just got my first airstream. Two questions. What all is on the yellow wire dc circuit? Something is drawing .75 amps and I can't find anything that is on. I know front cabin lights and stereo is on it. Stereo memory shouldnt draw that much. I can hear something clicking when i pull the fuse but can't track it down.

Also there is an orange heavy duty 12-3 wire run through the wire channel between Goucho and credenza and comes out behind refrigerator access panel(it is cut at this point ) is this something someone added or is it important?

Yellow wire is circuit 2. It is lighting, including ceiling lights and storage compartment lights. Make sure the lights are off in all storage compartments. Schematic diagrams are available in your manual. IF you don't have one, ti is available for download at the Airstream web site.

Can't help you with the orange, but it looks like an orange 120V extension cord that was added for some purpose. From my experience it is not factory.

Thank you. I think I figured it out. Seems like the tape deck automatically ejects tape and is stuck and keeps trying to eject. This is what was causing the large power draw and draining battery. Pulled out Goucho and found other end of extension cord cut also.
