Dog ate my wires!

Need help guys! I have a 2014 Sunset Trail and my dog discover that he could pull the wires out through the bedroom side panel. I need to know if those wires in that section only go to the tv and the radio. Haven’t tried the tv yet but the radio is definitely without power. I’m hoping I can splice everything back together when I take that panel off.

Do you have a picture that would show what/where you are referring to? It may help to have a visual of the area.

If you do the repair, I recommend soldering the power wires and using shrink tube on the repair. If it is the tv cable, you can get either screw on adaptors or clamp on adapter for the repair.
Then somehow make it "dog proof" so it won't happen again.

Sorry to hear. I had a boat 30 years ago. My dog (Australian Sheppard) had a lot of fun pulling the tail light wires out. Over and over she did this. When you make the repair your dog will smell your scent and do this over and over. In his brain he's playing with you because of the smell. He's just playing, but it's a real pain in the neck to pull new wire again and again. I finally broke her of the habit my mixing red pepper and jalapeno seeds with some glue and coating the wiring with it.

Good luck.
Dustin
