Help with Control Panel

We went out for a weekend camp ('85 19' bigfoot) and while checking the tank status I turned the knob a little too hard and it started spinning freely...
No problem, time for an upgrade anyway right?
I purchased a new panel but I'm not sure which wire goes were.
I've been unable to find a wiring diagram, does anyone know the wire colors to each tank?
Thanks!

Jason, you might just want to look at the tanks. Starting with the water tank. You will be able to tell from that.
Also see how they are wired to the old panel, in what order the different colors run.

I E-Mailed Bigfoot for info recently and they sent me a bunch of info on my 2006. You may want to ask them!

I did some crawling (its 33c today) and figured out the tank colors, got it connected....and nothing works....I'll try sending a request to Bigfoot, but if anyone can help I'd be very thankful!

=Problem solved with time and patients. Turns out it didn't work because I had a blown fuse.
For those who stumble on this thread in the future and wonder what the answer was -

Freshwater tank = Brown
Grey water tank = Green
Black water tank = Blue

Ground = white

Pump and Hot = Orange

You'll have to use a meter to figure out which is which because they look the same.

I also had an extra black wire that was jumped off the Hot Orange but it may have been placed there by a previous owner. Wasn't necessary for the new board so I capped it off.

GOOD LUCK!!
