Tire Damage

Factory tire came apart after 1000 miles. Luckily I had minimal damage. No damage to the fender and some damage under the slide out. It did tear out the wiring to the running light and plug behind the couch. Does anyone know where I can find the electrical diagram for the Voltage 3950? I pretty sure the running light is part of the 12 volt system and the plug is part of the 110 volt system.. Any help would be appreciated.

I have a 2014 3950 - there is no wiring diagram except for what you draw up yourself. If you get a good pic of what you are looking for and description of location, I will look at mine and see if I can help.

Glad to hear that you and your RV are safe and there was minimal damage. Tires have been a hot topic on this forum, we affectionately call them china bombs.

Welcome to the forum!

You are correct, the tail lights will be 12v, and the outlet is 110 v.

There is no 115V receptacle in our 3950 LR slide. I installed one on the wall of the powder room and use an extension cord. The couch is gone of course.

Maybe they added on in later years - ours is a 2011 model.

Thanks for the quick reply. I don't have pictures, but I will try to describe. Under the couch slide out, there is a plastic flex guard that the wires run from the frame to the slide out. The large black bundle is for the slide out motor. There is also 2 white wires that run to under the slide out (guessing those are for the 110 plug behind the couch. I cannot find the 12 v wires and where they come from within the frame. I am guessing the broke off at the frame.

Here is a photo of the wires. I believe these are to the plug.

The white with the blue doesn't look like power. Have your checked your load center to see what color the wires are there? The stranded wires are definitely 12 v. Do you think these wires could be to your electric brakes? I believe the 110 stuff would be IN the belly of the RV and not exposed on the outside and 12 or 14 AWG.

Without breaking under mine, the frame is I beam, so you could drop some of the chloroplast (the black cardboard looking covering) and you'll be at to see the other end of the wires. I'll get under mine as soon as I get out there. Freaking cold this week. LOL
