Wiring 2006 Dutchmen

There are 4 wires that we don't know what they may have connected to. They are thin colored wires green, red, white and black. They are in the bedroom wall next to the refrigerator and above cabinet where hot water heater is, then a storage area then tv should sit on top of this cabinet. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks!

Black and Red almost always indicates POWER, given the size of the wire, it would be DC and probably something that uses a small amount of current.

Another clue is what the connector looks like and if each of the wires has a connection of its own and they are all in a row or 2x2 or L shaped.

There are no connectors attached. Just raw wires. All colors of wires are the same size. What happened is he backed the side of trailer into the eave of the garage and it gouged a hole into it disrupting possibly pulling the wires off of their connections - connectors. He didn't want me to tell everyone that - but accidents do happen and he was by himself when he did it with no one back there directing him.

He has bought and replaced the siding but can't repair the hole in the bedroom wall until he figures out and reconnects these wires.

Since they were "ripped" apart, there may be a fuse that tripped or blew. My guess would be to check the DC fuses since the wires sound smaller. Won't be for a light or speaker since the color codes are not right for that. Quick question... do you have a light that can be switch on or off from two different locations? IS the green wire larger than the other wires?

Sounds like it could be wires for the slideout. Find the slideout controller and see what color wires are connected to it.
