2005 SixPac D850 Wiring

I have had ths camper for about 15 years and just bought the electric jack conversion kit.  The camper is pre-wired to each of the 4 corners for the jacks, but then where do they go from there?  Anybody have any ideas?  I'm a retired mechanic and have the ability to install this kit, but I am having trouble tracing the jack wires into the camper (wires everywhere!)

I FOUND THEM!  Not at the front or even the side of the camper, BUT under the bathroom at the left rear corner of the camper!  Gonna rest my knees now!  Thanks for the help! (2005 Six Pac D850).

Many newer, usually larger, truck campers have storage space underneath the camper floor. That would be the basement, just like in a real building. The camper floor comes up above the wheel wells or even the bed rails. Of course, that space is also used for other purposes, like grey and black tanks.

Your camper does not have a basement. And most of the space under the step to the cabover is likely occupied by the fresh water tank.  

Get a blanket or cushion to kneel on. Or find someone handy to assist. Maybe even hire a mobile RV technician.

The wires must be there, somewhere.

I'm guessing the 'basement' is in that step for the cabover access. (?)  The converter, charger, water pump, and a crapload of wires are in there.  But, they all seem to be connected to components and each other . . . so far.  My 78-year-old knees are not enjoying this search.  I was tracing 2 jack wires from the left front corner to that area and lost them in the crowd!  Thanks for all the suggestions, I'm feeling just a little bit stupid for spending $1800 on this kit before I knew where it was going to be hooked up!

I don't know your camper.

Where is the power supply / converter / fuse box? Get yourself a good flashlight and look inside that compartment. There is a good chance that the control board goes near the converter when the electric jacks are factory installed, and that you find a balled up bundle of wires somewhere nearby. Often this is under the sink, or under one of the dinette seats.

Basement?  This is a truck camper WITHOUT electric jacks OR a controller.  I’m adding a conversion kit.  All 4 corners are pre-wired for electric jacks BUT I can’t find where they terminate.  (To add a controller)  There is no basement!?

um quite a few, if not most newer models have basments, usaly they are about a foot tall and have access to your tanks, pumps and electronics.  I did look up your camper and it apears you don't have one, so guess you won't find it there.

Look under the sink for the wiring. It is different in each brand - My Arctic Fox controller was under the sink and my Host was in the basement storage.

I will look closer at the under sink area.  I have no idea what the ‘basement’ area is!?
