That seems odd. Mine is very neet, color coded and labelled.

There was one thing the PO did that I had to replace and that was a short section of inappropriate wire leading to a fan in the berth area.

Ok guys....here is a u tube that can be very useful for ID ing conductors. This is about telephone but the principles are the same. If connected to ground the tone will run wild all over the boat but if it is just a pair of wires than you are in business. One side of the tone generator can be attached to ground and the other to a single conductor and that conductor can be died also but all your grounds will screaming at your probe also. Very useful technique in helping to unravel spaghetti.

The PO's added all sorts of stuff and I guess in the process he cut all the cable ties from the factory and tried to fit all the stuff he added into the race way, but couldn't get it all to fit so he just left everything dangling and loose.
