Older Gerbings jacket question

I have an older Gerbings heated jacket with Primaloft. It has SAE plugs. It was made in the USA, and has a nylon outer shell.

On the LEFT side of the jacket (while wearing it) there are 2 SAE plugs. The one closest to the zipper has a longer wire and has 2 velcro wire closures leading to a small pocket. The small pocket is about the right size for the controller. The other wire is much shorter.

I suspect one of the wires is for connection to pants and the other is for input from the power source.

Can anyone confirm the longer wire closest to the zipper should be connected to the power source? i bought it on Craigslist and I was never sure I had it hooked up right. It came with gloves that wire into the sleeves. I've never been sure they heat up, but I've only used it once. I've always used the shorter wire, but I think I'm supposed to use the longer wire. A simple label would have been helpful.

I have two older styles. One similar only with the "round" connections,and one with SAE connections.
Both "longer cables" or the one closest to the zipper are for the connection to "Power".
The "short" cable is for accessoriesie: pants,gloves etc.

On the round style,they are marked. (At least mine are)
On the SAE style,the longer cable has a "Red" marker indicating "hot or power" where as the short cable is marked "White".

For my gloves....they are connected independently through a "Dual Controller",but 1 power feed from battery.
The gloves (for me at least)required a different setting than the jacket.
