Unhappy off again

Hello everyone...
some months ago when I purchased the '62 Safari I posted this problem. Shore power works great but I could not get the 12v power to work. Fully charged battery and there is power flowing through the pos and neg wires from the battery but it stopped ther and wasn't coming into the trailer. Then all of a sudden miraculously it worked and all 12v systems turned on. Well now I am experiencing the same problem. Cant get juice inside the trailer. Probably a short huh? I have a 12v probe and attached it to a the pos and neg wire inside trailer to power the radio and it's not working now and of course no lights no nothin'
Any suggestions?

Sound to me like a ground problem. Make sure your battery ground is connected to the trailer, and the connections are good and secure. Your 12 volt lights in 63, like mine only have a hot wire, orange in color, feeding them power, the ground wire, white or green in color, connects to the trailer at each fixture and completes the curcuit.
