Help with 12 Volt interior lights

Just got my 66 Caravel back from having some work done - all electric was working fine previously and during its stay at the "hospital". But now when I plug into shore power - (I no longer have batteries or use univolt) - the 12 volt lights are not working. My outlet plugs are all working fine.

I've tried new bulbs - but repairman thinks there must be a blown fuse. I have checked the 1966 manual and I see a diagram for 4 fuses but I cannot locate where they are in the service area.

can anyone help me troubleshoot???

Thanks!

paula

If you no longer have batteries or univolt, where does the 12v DC for the lights come from?

Without 12v, your 12v system will not function. Since you have removed any source of 12v, nothing will work.

I've owned the trailer for 10 years - no batteries - just shore power and everything has always worked fine. And the old univolt is still there, I just assumed it wasn't functioning all these years since there were no batteries.

got it!

Just double checked the toggles - I reset them to city power and now lights are working.
Thanks for helping me uncover the obvious!
