1965 24' tradewind - Photo of Univolt/wires requested

All,

The previous owner removed the Univolt box from the trailer and also most of the bathroom leaving only the tub - circut breaker box and 110v city power is intact along with the wires leading out of it - battery leads are intact and when i hook up battery, most lights work except rear bedroom spots attached to the bedroom/bathroom wall. all 110v outlets work except the one on bedroom/bathroom wall.

there are several(house)wires in the rear that are capped including some 12v wires.

*Wanted to ask if someone can please take some photos of their univolt so i can see the wires leading into and out of it.

What can i use to replace the Univolt box?? i'd like to get 110v power to the lights

Also, i've attached some good clear photos of the breaker box & wires as they are in the rear of the trailer and perhaps someone can assist me in figuring out where they attach??

**also was wondering what the little switch and gang of wires that were cut in last close-up photo marked with green arrows?**

I can only give you an opinion on the univolt replacement: "It depends"

(what are your plans; solar? or no solar?; what type of battery(s)?; what devices/appliances/lighting . . . do you plan on accommodating/including?)

I have no solar, and have a fairly traditional battery set up. So I went with a Progressive Dynamics Converter (and am very happy):

I agree completely with MarkR. I installed PD 9200. Easy install.

I don't know if this will help but here's a closeup of the Univolt connections.

A PD 9245 will handle all of your needs. You will also need a fuse block with enough capacity for your application. I would guess 6 load side circuits would be ample.

The lights are 12volt DC
I second the idea of an Intellipower converter. You will also need a 12v circuit panel with room for at least 4 circuits and a battery.
