XXL Wiring Harness / Drag Chain Question

I’m in the process of assembling my XXL and just hit the wiring section of the online installation guide.

In the guide it says "The Wiring Harness is pre-assembled at the factory for your convenience. All of the cables are routed correctly, and the Drag Chains are spaced the correct distance apart.

You only need to attach the Wiring Harness to the Shapeoko XXL and then connect the various wires to their respective ports on the Controller Board."

But my harness isn’t pre-assembled. I ordered my kit over the summer and am guessing this must have been a new update. Is there an earlier version of the guide that shows how to assemble the harness and drag chains?

I put together a unified version of the previous version of the assembly instructions back when we were still trying to get them updated:

Thanks Will! I may even get this thing together by New Years :laughing:

I run into the same problem now in 2020! :relaxed:
My drag chains are not wired, and I certainly need a guidance.
Would you please share the pre-2017 wiring instructions for Shapeoko XXL again? ( anyone? )
The link is no longer available and I am stuck.
