I am replacing a continuous duty solenoid in a 2007

Customer Question

I am replacing a continuous duty solenoid in a 2007 Fleetwood Tioga. I just bought it and I think the previous owner did not connect the wiring correctly. I have the electrical diagrams from Fleetwood but I just can't be sure that I am connecting them correctly.
JA: Have you checked all the fuses? Do you have a wiring diagram?
Customer: Yes
JA: Are you fixing your Fleetwood yourself? What have you tried so far?
Customer: Yes, this is the only thing that I have tried. When the auxiliary power is on the solenoid clicks every few minutes. For awhile the power would cycle on and off. When it was off there was an audible buzzing coming from the solenoid. Previous owner states he removed the wiring from the solenoid and he is not sure if he hooked it up correctly.
JA: Anything else you want the mechanic to know before I connect you?
Customer: No

But what about the wiring to the solenoid? I have 5 wires, one is white going to the 50 amp breaker, two smaller red wires coming from the fuse panel, one large gauge red wire coming from the auxiliary battery disconnect, and one large gauge wire coming from the positive pole of the auxiliary battery.
