7 pin pig tail wiring

I have a international 4700 that came with a 6 pin receptacle and I found that the 7th wire that it is missing is for the battery charging on my RW. Does any have any idea how to run the wire on the truck? Not sure if I should run it from the truck battery or the alternator or from another point. HELP PLEASE.

My two cents: you could need a 12 volt relay/contactor controlled by the ignition switch (a starter solenoid could work) . With the ignition on, the contactor could connect the battery to your RV through a circuit breaker/resettable fuse located near the truck's battery. I would run AWG 8 gauge conductors from the contactor and battery negative to the truck's rear end to compensate for voltage drop due to the distance. Just saying.

If you don't know how to hook it up, I would go to the International Dealer to have it done or to show me how to do it. Wrong hookup and you have a fire. Just my 2 cents
