A wiring mystery- the squirrel did it

We've had our rig parked out on the property we're going to build on for the last year. It's mainly our break trailer and tool crib, but we keep the batteries charged if we need power. A few weeks ago I was down there (half our south of us), and I noticed that the kitchen lights would work, but the bedroom lights didn't. Neither did the living room lights. The stove vent and it's light even worked fine, but that's about it. The slides kicked on, also. Skip to a couple of days ago when I opened up the front end to change batteries, and I found what I'll show with pics. Some form of rodent came up the jack and chewed up some wires. I was told long ago to never eat nuts or chips if you're working on auto wiring or you'll have rodents destroying your good work. Guess that's what happened here. A selected few spots really got it.




My problem is, I can't quite figure out where everything was running too. The white one is chewed all to pieces (sorry about the bad shot, it was left handed with a dumb phone), and also a black one was skinned. The read and black wires, I have no idea. And up top I found a yellow/white wire bare and alone. Can anybody shoot me a pic of what your 'vintage' 2000's wiring looks like, or tell me what goes where? Thanks for any help on this. Lee

the red cable may be the brake wiring to rear axles
