    On most pop up campers there is a wiring harness where the black and white wire go from the base of the pup to the top of the pup. It will be feed through a small channel sewn into the canvas. It is usually located on the street side rear of the pup. There are two plugs on this wire, one at the bottom of the canvas one at the top. I am searching for a replacement wire and plug set and cannot find one for a 1999 Coleman Cheyenne. I tried Coleman Pop UP Parts with out luck.. There is a person on Ebay who sells just the clips so i could make my own harness but the wires need to be soldered and i cannot do that. Any idea where I can find the whole set up or at least the male and female clips that do not need to be soldered?
    Thanks in advance everyone,
    Kyle

    Soldering is dead easy - use resin core solder. Keep your options open.

    I would try contacting colemanpopupparts.com and asking them. You can't be the first person to have to replace one of those. I know exactly what you are talking about and it seems like even if it is pulled from a used/donor unit it should be something they can get.

    Can you take some pictures of the cord plugs and the damage?

    @Kyle- they were the first place I tried and Derek said they didnt sell them. From what he said, if worse came to worse, I could cut the lower and upper connectors that are there now and use any 12v connectors to make the new wiring harness.
    @Jimmy, I will take a picture tomorrow morning to post.

    I gotcha, I didn’t know if you just searched the website and couldn’t find it. I would be interested to know if you find something that does work. I have an ‘06 Utah. Might come in handy some day.

    31Grg64tppL.jpg Here is a picture of a plug assembly that you should be able to find at any auto parts store, possibly at Walmart, or Lows. You cut them apart, and use crimp on butt connectors. You should be able to do it in less than 10 min.

    Are you missing the harness completely? In any event there are multitudes of crimp on connectors you could buy, and splice on yourself, or create a new harness. If it were me and the harness was missing I'd cut the plugs off the top and bottom and just put some new wire in between and use some crimp on butt connectors. Most hardware stores carry wires of varying kinds and dimensions, personally I've used solid copper low voltage thermostat wire in a lot of 12 volt applications. There's no major reason it has to use those factory plugs short of swapping out the canvas easily that I can see.
