5TA wiring diagram

It seems I saw this somewhere along the way......can anyone point me in the right direction?
Mine is a 2014; but I’m sure it hasn’t changed much.
Thanks

I have never seen a wiring diagram for the 5.0TA. I do have one with the standard locations of AC and DC outlets. What are you wondering about?

A friend of mine was using the trailer and somehow- don’t know how exactly- the electrical hookup from the hitch location , the part that plugs into the truck got pulled out of the junction box on the trailer. It must of somehow got hooked around or on something and when making the turn(s) to back in the trailer it got too taught and pulled out. The guy who is rehooking it up is asking me for a wiring diagram.

There would be no diagram for that, but it is quite easy to figure out. Most of the trailer running lights will match up in colour, as would the brake wire. The DC is sometimes black and white instead of red and black, but a quick test with a meter should wring them out.

On my 2014
First column is the umbilical cord

Blue - Blue
Green - Green
Brown - Brown
Yellow - Not Connected (got a crimp connector on it but no other wire)
Red - Yellow
White - Ground screw
Black - Group of reds

The Yellow looks to be reverse lights, if one had such.

The only diagram I've seen of the 12-volt wiring in an Escape is the one which Steve (St3v3) drew up after tracing the wiring in his 15A: 15A Wiring Diagram

The details of wiring vary by model, by year, and by equipment... all of which makes sense. The connections at the junction box for the towing umbilical (labelled "Electrical Box" on Steve's diagram) should be pretty consistent, since they only handle the lighting, brakes, and one wire to the battery - none of which have a reason to change by model.

Steve's diagram shows the same wire colour matching as Bob's list; it just provides more explanation of all of the connections in case something else has come apart within the box.

The centre pin of the RV 7-way connector (which normally has a yellow wire) is the Auxiliary circuit. In can be used for whatever you want, which is commonly reversing lights but can also be a separate stop lamp, an alternate power source, or anything else.

The light circuits don't match because the umbilical follows the standard RV 7-way colour coding, but the lamps follow the colour coding of the 4-way and other connections following the SAE standard.

Yes, the umbilical has the standard of black for positive (+12V) and white for negative (ground); at least in Steve's 15A, Escape followed the "battery cable" pattern of red for positive (+12V) and black for negative (ground) between the termination box and the battery.
