    I just bought a used Alpenlite 5th wheel and the previous owner "messed" with the wiring on the female (trailer side) umbilical hook-up. How do I figure out which wires do what so I may wire it to my truck?

    On my old 89 winnebago the wires to my trailer dolly are as follows:
    White to Black
    Green to Green
    Blue to Yellow
    Orange to Red
    This may not help you, but it might. There may be other wires also that I am not aware of, but wanted the running lights, brake lights, etc., to work on the dolly to my MH wire connector. ;)

    ttrazor, FORGET THAT LAST POSTS, I WAS LOOKING AT A DIFFERENT DIAGRAM SO IT DOESN'T APPLY. GETTING OLD AND FORGETFUL. THE WIRING I TOLD YOU IS FOR TELEPHONE JACK, NOT THE TRAILER. SORRY :blackeye:

    I will try to look at a plug tomorrow and give you the code.

    This is right out of a Bargman plug. Hopefully your wires will match to this.

    Ground: White
    Brakes: Blue
    Right Turn: Brown
    Left Turn: Red
    Marker Lights: Green
    Hot: Black

    Your seventh wire, whatever color, is the back up light, and it goes in the middle.
