What is a trigger wire?

We purchased a jensen awm970 stereo to relace an existing stereo in a 5th wheel trailer. We've just about gotten all of the wiring figured out and hooked up, but there is a pink wire from the jensen stereo marked trigger. Not sure what it is or where to connect it.

I'm not familiar with that particular model number, trigger is generally used for: external amplifier turn on, or power antenna turn on (though standard wire codes for trigger for most brands are blue and or blue with white stripe). I expect it is for amp turn on ... if everything else is working as expected ... tape up any exposed metal on the wire and forget it.

A trigger is a electrical pulse that can be used to make a motor turn on. for example you may want a drop down screen to automaticly come down when the stereo is powered on or a tv to flip out of the wall. The trigger does not need to be used. hope this helps.

Can I pull an 18 foot 1973 Aljo 5th wheel travel trailer with my 2004 Mazda MPV van? My van can pull up to 3500 pounds.


">No, a 5th wheel trailer requires a 5th wheel hitch which is bed mounted, not bumper mounted which is what you have or frame mounted in your case, either way the van cannot tow a 5th wheel due to its design the 5th wheel hitch has no where to be located except in a bed of a truck.

john, Did you get your problem with your Jensen AWM970 solved? I have just bought the same device in an imported caravan and can't for the life of me get into the region menu??? I'm about to throw it out but because it's so large it will leave a huge hole to fill. Any help would be good. Cheers, Phil.

What is the function of the 8 wires for the factory rv plug?


The 8 wire plug on newer models is for trailer hauling. The wires give power to the following; break lights, marker lights, backup lights (as equipped) parking lights, electric breaks (larger trailers will have these) one wire is a ground, and, through a positive wire, will trickle charge your trailers house batteries also. There is an industry standard to wiring one of these plugs, so you should be able to purchase any "newer" style trailer (tent, tow behind or 5th wheel, or camper) and the wiring harness will be wired accordingly. Any RV shop or auto shop should be able to provide a schematic for the wiring if you require one.

Locating owners manual for 5th wheel & factory appliances


You'll probably find that the actual owners manual for the trailer is just a generic one, that covers many trailers in the fleetwood line-up. I'm guessing your worried about the AC, microwave, water heater & fridge. Get make & model numbers off them & I'll see what I can come up with. As far as items in the trailer other than that or questions, feel free to get back to me with any, and I should be able to explain most if not all. I'll also keep my eyes open at work (RV dealership) for a manual of your year.
