Slow but Sure

Our 71 Safari Twin is coming along. We found 3 rotted spots in the floor and have cut the plywood out, will repair soon. We have cleaned and cleaned and cleaned, but we must clean some more. It is amazing how dirty a trailer can get from sitting for 8 years.

The a/c is now working as is the fridge (only on 120v). The 12v wires have been cut and I haven't figured out why, I am guessing that it was blowing fuses or something and the previous owner cut them.

Which 12v wires are cut? If you have the original fridge it doesn't need 12v, it would be gas/electric without a 12v circuit board, and if you have a later fridge that requires 12v I don't think it would work on 120v without 12v to the board.

I don't know if it has the original fridge or not, the brand is "Domestic".

There is a red wire, a black wire, and a white wire hanging down behind the fridge. These wires are about 16 gauge and I assumed they were 12v. There is no circuit board.

It doesn't really matter because we probably would never use the fridge under 12v anyway. I'm just excited that the fridge works and we don't have to buy a new one.
