I have run into a bit of a conundrum and am hoping someone can give me a bit of good advice.
Last year part of the 12V
circuit that runs the lamps on the passenger side rear, near the side bed (mounted on the side of the passenger side, forward closet) and which also seem to run the 12V
fan over the stove and an after-market lamp over the sink (both driver side) stopped working.
The Univolt seems fine, and the light on the mirror in the bathroom still works. The wiring for that light seems to come straight from the univolt via a pair of thick single strand aluminum wires that come up into the bathroom closet (passenger side.) There are two crimped marrets there, and from there two identical wires go back into the wall.
I am assuming those wires from the closet in the bathroom are the ones that come out inside the adjacent closet forward of that, which clearly power the lamp I mentioned above and which seem to then run across the top of the trailer ceiling over to the stove fan.
There is 12V
power in the bathroom closet but no voltage in the adjacent closet forward.
Can someone confirm that my assumptions about the wiring path are correct? I don't want to wire a bypass with copper until I am sure I won't be causing an even worse problem. There is no continuity from the closet in the bathroom to the adjacent closet forward, (I think possibly both pos and neg wires have parted or melted and this is causing this.) Obviously I would have liked to see continuity on one wire or the other from point to point to verify my assumptions, and for this reason I am posting here before going forward, as I am feeling a bit nervous. (I have a background in electronics and some electrical experience but it's been a while since I worked in the field, and I am rusty!
) If someone who has stripped their trailer can recall the wiring paths they saw when they did that they could confirm for me in a minute if I am on the right track, hopefully!
Thanks in advance for your kind advice.
