Electrical Junction Wiring Help

Today I had to fix the clamp that holds the 7 Pin cable in place to the upfront junction box. When I removed the cover I noticed that there were two wires loose. There was a light blue and a black wire that came from the Rig side wiring that were loose in the box. I don’t know if they are suppose to be wired together or just loose. I have read up on wiring and do know that blue wires go to the brakes and the black usually a positive. There is already two thick blue wires attached to a thick black wire which I think is for the rig brakes so I don't know what these two wires are for.

I have attached photos of the loose wires and the already connected other blue and black wires

Any help you can give me would be great full

Thanks in Advanced
Larry

Someone just went through rewiring his 7 way cable junction box on the Montana RV Owners Group on Facebook
Lots of pictures and diagram.
Carl is going to kill me for referencing FB but here goes...

Thats just what I was looking for thank you so very much my suspicions are valid. The two wires do go together.

I replaced my water pump in basement of my 22 3231ck and when I removed the patrician wall the wiring was atrocious. Wires running everywhere, looked like a rats nest. Keystone brags about color coding their wiring, now I know why. No pride in anything these days

Wiring

Pulled up years ago to get gas and noticed smoke coming from the "metal box" up under the hitch.....Come to find a hot wire shorting out to the box...
I replaced the metal box with a plastic one ---soldered all the wires together as connected and taped well..... I have done this on ALL RV's since

Just wait until you drop the chloroplast underbelly one day...now that is a sight to see. The cigarette butts & soda can were a nice touch as well...
