Residential/commercial electrician needing guidance on a 1979 Airstream Argosy.

I wire houses and buildings. I do not know much about car and trailer wiring (aside from hooking up the main electrical service for trailers at trailer parks.)
A friend wants me to get her 1979 Airstream Argosy wired up. I went and checked it out and I donít really understand what is going on except for the 5 outlets. It looks like it is missing the panel box if the panel box is supposed to be near the front on the left. Some things Iíve read lead me to believe it might be in the back and I just missed it. And that there is some other type of electrical panel above the fridge in the kitchen? Or above the range.

Anyway can someone please tell me where the panel is supposed to be and help me to understand what kind of panel I would need to have her buy to get it wired back up for her?

Much appreciated.

In my 72 Sovereign, the panel was in the rear drivers side closet.

The box would only hold four breakers, and one of them was used to back the other three when plugged into shore power....

in other words one of the four in a row was used as a main. it is a 30 amp, the air conditioner is a 20 amp, and the other two were 15 amp.

Wherever it is you should be able to follow the shore power wire in to the main service.
The fact that I am opinionated does not presuppose that I am wrong......
