Lights work but Outlets do not

Looking for some help. I have a 1970 Caravanner. I hooked up the battery and have power to all the lights and the bathroom fan but I do not have power in any of the outlets. Power going into and out of the fuse box is good, but there is no power going into the breaker box.

Is there something in between the fuse box and breaker box where the power would get interrupted? Is there a power inverter in this? Is there a cord somewhere to hook up to power?

Thanks in advance. I don't have a service manual so don't know the wiring diagram.

Sounds like you just have 12V. There is no inverter from the factory in a 1970 trailer so to get 110 at the outlets you must plug in the trailer. I believe most trailers in the 70s had the cord in the bumper.

Yep! That sounds like it. The lights are 12 volt. The outlets are 110. Check the circuit breakers for the 110. Cycle them off to on.

Wazbro, you were right. The cord was in the bumper and the outlets work. Thanks.

Glad you got it working, it is tough to figure some of this out on your own.

If you can find someone with experience nearby to help you go through how to use the systems in your trailer it can really speed up the learning curve.
