1965 Tradewind- How do I plug it in? Or can't I?

Does anyone know how I can plug my trailer into electric (from my garage nearby)? Or if this is not possible.

Just got my trailer and would like to run electric from my garage to the trailer. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks!

Also, does anyone have schematics for the 1965 Tradewind 24'?

Your trailers electrical cord should be 30 amp. You need to buy a plug that fits 15 amp on your house. You need 30 amp female side, 15 amp male side. Lowes, home depot, etc all have them. Good luck

Outlet

Is there an outlet somewhere on the outside of the trailer? or is it in the trunk area somewhere (under the toilet)?

Sorry, meant trailer plug. Is there a trailer plug somewhere in the trailer? or is it in the mechanical area somewhere (under the toilet)? There have been some modifications to my trailer over the years and I'm unsure of where on the trailer I am supposed to find the plug for electrical. I received this trailer with no paperwork.

Hmmmm. Unfortunately, what you need is someone who's both an electrician and an archeologist (to determine what previous owners have screwed up). If you can fine the 120 volt circuit breaker panel, maybe you can trace the source from there... If there's a rear bumper compartment, or any exterior comparments, that's another promising place to look.

You might also try asking in the Tradewind forum for your year....
