2. We removed one panel and found that a PO had hit a wire with a screw, cutting the insulation and exposing the copper wire. Presuming there could be a few instances of this, is this a fire danger?
We are hoping not to have to take off the interior panels but dont want to proceed until we know the trailer is safe. Any advice or feedback would be appreciated
There may be a set of 12v
circuit breakers on the forward interior wall. If there's a front gaucho sofa, the breakers are behind the back of the gaucho.
When you say AC fuse box, do you mean a circuit breaker box? Or do you really mean fuses? If it's really AC fuses, that's absolutely NOT an Airstream item. The only thing I can think about that fits the "toggle between AC and DC" on an '80s trailer is that they put in a light-switch style switch that turned the converter-charger off or on when plugged into shore power.
