82, 162, 310, purple, black, white, open close

They read like the sequence for a code or a football play.  These are the critical wires involved in controlling the air solenoid under the stairs that opens and closes the coach door.  The coach is equipped with a really neat aircraft style door that swings open and shut at the press of a button.

82 and Purple go to the dash.  Purple is the power source and was set to work when the key was in.  I rewired it to always be on.  If someone has access to the button on the dash they are going to open the door anyway.

310 and 162 go to a button.  Black and white are an extension to serve the stairway button.  They hook into 310 and 162.

Interestingly, 162 was disconnected and labeled, WTF?  I had disconnected it while I was working on the lights.  I put it on it’s own circuit breaker with purple.

All the wires are now labeled and working.  At some point I may add a keyless entry to the motorhome.  They aren’t that expensive and it would be nice to have.  My only hesitation is making sure I have a backup way in if the keyless misbehaves.  The coach is something of a fortress when you get right down to it.  If you lock yourself out you have to pick a window to break…. 🙁

I should be ready for an inspection on Friday and license plates!
