I have a picture of it in post #13. Several green wires and one yellow one.

Sent from my SM-N910W8 using Wander The West mobile app

Have you uncoiled those wires to take a better look?  Seems like I see a fuse on the yellow wire, and that the green wires are all made common by those junction blocks?

I checked those wires last night. they become live once you place a 15a fuse in the port for flood lights. they are the junction for both flood lights. the yellow is either for porch light or a second porch light. I forget. because there is already a 5a fuse in place for the ceiling lights. maybe yellow 5a is for the second ceiling light. I will chase that wire next just for info.

done, pulling wall from under lift panel was no fun. green wire went into a panel. but was a dead end. way different than older models. i took pics. installed a rigid flood rv light where fwc puts the their floods. very nice install area on the inside with a good ground. hooked up to my basspro shops power panel and the fwc fuse block into the #1 flood position with 15a fuse. works perfect. lights up my trailer for loading and unloading at night.

Hi Tree

 

On my 2012 Hawk shell the green wire with 5 amp inline fuse is for running lights.

I seen those. there are 2 sets of green wires in the hawk. light green and dark green. don't let the shades fool you. mine starts dark at the fuse block, and goes to a junction for both floods. found the dead end for one side. was lighter green. used it with no issues. I stayed clear of the running light circuit.
