dans, what kind of help are you looking for? That terminal block is for the pigtail that connects to your vehicle and the wires control parking lights, brake and turn signal lights (one wire for left and one for right, electric brakes, reverse lights?, 12 volt charge wire for the battery, a ground.

I know that block is for the trailer pigtail. I am looking for a diagram as to what each connection goes to. Some of the wires on mine are loose and I want to put it back correctly.

dans - You might refer to the owner's manual for the 1983 models here: https://www.hilotrailerforum.com/f49...o-manual-6838/ It's got a wiring diagram that shows the terminal block, wire colors, and what they go to. I suspect your 1984 model was wired the same, because HiLos had very few changes from year to year.

Jack, thanks for the link, but I have my hilo owners manual and while it shows wire colors, it and your link do not show the terminal block. I will ohm out the circuits and replace the pigtail then I will have a diagram of the terminal block.

I think it does - but it's a "schematic" which may not be what you want. It's shown in Drawing B on page 14 of the link I gave you and it's in the upper left corner of that drawing. The schematic shows the output wire colors and what each goes to.

the upper left of the drawing B on page 14 shows the top of the camper. after the coiled cord that connects the two halfs together. It does not show the terminal block down by the battery. The colors in the upper left part of the drawing is the colors in the top half of the camper. this is the same as my HiLo owners manual.

My 1991 26c had the wires connecting the top half in a bundle behind the stink pipe in the bathroom. The HiLo I have now has a coiled cord outside the camper to connect the top and bottom halves.

OK, my mistake. At first glance, and maybe a lot more for me, it looked like the schematic in my manual that DOES show the terminal block in the battery compartment.

I guess the multimeter approach will be your only help. Sorry!

Hey, that looks exactly like my '88, wire colors and all.

I found that that half of the wires are for the driving lights, 3 are for the internal lights and power, and 2 are power and ground. I actually tossed the whole thing and got a 7-way junction box, and butt spliced the 3 inside lighting wires. But it was complicated to put together.

What colors do you need? I can tell you that Brown is Right Turn, Red is Left Turn, Yellow is backup, and Green is Marker/ Tail Lights. Howeeeeeever, there is a second Yellow wire, and it's one of the Internal Lights.

I have replaced the trailer connector to the fist four on the terminal block and found that the last two of the terminal block is internal connections. I will post the actual wires by tb number next week after I get back home.
