yes it is fixable

you should have a black wire a blue wire and a yellow wire not in use.
The blace is for auxillary load
the blue is for electric brakes
Yellow is european brake turn signal use.

can you get to the black wire?
now iam getting a little confused you ran extra wire where?
can you draw a simple picture?

12 volt

Sorry I don't know how to draw a picture and send it. I'm new to computers too. The blue. black and yellow wires are cut off at each end of the cable but can be got at. The extra wire -- There is a 12 volt light at each end of the cupboard above the sink -- is connected to these lights but at the moment goes nowhere. It is just rolled up and sitting there.

ok i see i think

that will make things pretty easy. each light has its own switch built in to it . Do you have a wire crimping tool and some wire butt connectors ? you mentioned before you wanted to put in lighter adapters all so.
wire crimper and soderless wire connectors look like theses
red is light weight wire 22 to 18 ga
blue is a meduim wire 16 to 14 ga
Yellow is heavy wire 12 to 10 ga
<img src=http://www.fiberglassrv.com/board/uploads/3f0463604a670adctools .jpg/>
what type of battery are you useing hopefully it has wing nuts on posts.
to start use the wire crimper striper section to see what size the black wire is it should be 10 gauge might be alittle smaller 12 guage or a little thicker 8 ga.
measuse by putting the wire in the holes of the stripper you are measureing for just the wire not the insulation and wire
We need this information and the wire size of your lights to help you pick up the right size connectors and right size wire and right size fuse holder and right size fuses.
I hope this is makeing sense!

12 volt

Hi Al,
Have crimper and connectors, no fuses or fuse holders. Haven't bought the battery yet, hoping it will go on sale again before we need it. Thanks for your help, this is just what I meant.

ok

well we are getting there slowly .
Fuse holder west marine has a small one wm part number 48 7801
http://www.westmarine.com/webapp/wcs/store...&keyword=487801
mount this in a place where you can to it

in line fuse holder for the battery radio shack in - line " blade " fuse holder part number 270-1234
get a 30 amp fuse.

crimp a yellow ring conector to the radio shack in line this will be connected to the battery + terminal. Useing yellow butt conector and use 10 gauge black wire crimp connect to black wire in wire harness that you cut off out side the trailer. that is is the wire is 10 or 12 gauge .
on the inside crimp new 10 gage wire and run to fuse block from west mairne
one 5 amp fuse for both of your dc lights
run a red 18 gauge wire to each of your lights from the fuse block
run a white 18 gauge wire from one light to the next light , from that
next light run white 18 gauge wire to the white wire where it comes in to the trailer. use a quick connect clamp type connection and connect to the white wire. make sure the white wire you are connecting to is not the 110 volt white wire.
on the out side of the trailer slice in to the white wire with a piece 10 gage white wire put a ring connector on it hook it to the negative side of the battery you now have lights.
get a plastic battery box with lid this help contain acid spills when checking water levels ect

Thank you

Thank you so much for your help and patience. I don't know where I could have got all this information if it wasn't for all the great people on this forum. Thanks again Al.
