Wires to no where...

So while looking under the brand new 2018 Axis today I see this... should I be alarmed? It's located right under the swivel valve for the black/grey. Seems they should either be connected or at the very least... capped.

Oh Geesshh! That's enough to unnerve anybody. For an option or something in your new coach is not going to work without power. Hard to tell. Hat to say it but you need to call the dealer, Thor or even drive back to the dealer and have it dealt with. If you don't it will bother you forever.

4 Wires there: Open the hatch to the right that covers the black tank and see if the sensors are wired up (4: 1 wire on the bottom, then a 1/3 wire, 2/3 wire and F wire).

Since that is the sewer bay and the tanks are right next door I'd bet that is what the wires are for.

Edit: Just looked at the sensor wires on my 24.1. My sensor wires are a much smaller gauge--like a telephone wire. Doesn't mean those aren't them but it is likely they are something else.

I also looked around my sewer area and there was no wires in that compartment at all.

I think I'd start crawling around underneath tracing them down to figure out where they go.

Not sure either but I would take a meter and check for power and then put wire nuts on them until I figured out where they go.
DC voltage in the coach doesn't normally follow the red/black positive negative colors. The chassis does.

Could it be wiring for the heated tanks came off. It happened to me on my new Axis.

Don't forget this is a Thor product. The wires could be for any one of the following.

1. Muffler Bearing Actuator.
2. Waste to Drinking Water Recycler(but the water is still waste tablet blue)
3. Old Whitehouse Intercom Connection to (Monica & Cigars).
4. Automated Self Repair Robot. (probably broke free from over use)

or my favorite....

5. Generally wired directly to a big Dynamite charge to self destruct problem coaches. Thor removed the charges because they were self destructing in the factory. :-)

LOL I haven't heard of muffler bearings in years! Not since 12th grade auto shop (1979). I didn't know they were still being made! I thought later improvements in exhaust systems helped the exhaust gasses "spin freely" without them!

HAHA

It's actually getting thicker sway bars and a steering stabilizer put on so the trouble shooting will have to wait. The tanks are registering correctly but my gut says it's wiring for the tank heating pads.

Then again, it could be for the flux capacitor which would explain why I only get 9.5 mpg's...

Could be for some kind of sensors to the rear lights fluid level (in the past I've heard of headlight fluid levels).

Looks like the wiring for the Dynamic mode stabilizer for the grey water output sensor to me!
