Battery disconnect - suddenly a loose wire...
Hello, all. I have what I hope is a quick, easy question.
I have a 2016 Thor Siesta 24SA. A few days ago, we unpacked from a long trip, and I drove the RV to my local storage location. One of the things I do if it will be idle for a while, is disconnect the engine's battery from the engine. There is a cable that is easy to disconnect, in the driver's foot/pedal mess.
Attached is a picture with the possible problem.
The red button at the bottom allows you to pull the cable off the metal stud coming into the cab. The stud is in the middle of the picture, slightly to the right.
My question is: what in the heck is the wire on the right: blue insulation at the top, most of it wrapped in a black coil, with about 1/2" stripped of insulation. Not connected to anything at that end... I never saw this before, and now I wonder if I pulled it off just seconds before, and something bad is going to happen.
I pushed the red-capped cable back on the stud, turned the key - and the engine started. That's great. But what WON'T start with this wire flopping around? Anyone have any idea what it is?
