Wiring Diagram for 1967 Tradewind 24 Ft?

I opened the electrical panel for the first time today and found a confusing mess of wires. I also found some potential problems. There are 3 attachments to show the current wiring configuration and my concerns:

1. First attachment - actual photo of the wiring mess.
2. Second attachment - my drawing of the current wiring connections (to better depict what the photo does not show) in JPEG format.
3. Third attachment - my drawing of the current wiring connections (to better depict what the photo does not show) in PDF format (same as attachment # 2 ... just in different format in case someone does not have Adobe loaded on their computer).

Concerns and questions:

A. Notice a BLACK wire coming from the bundle of VARIOUS colored wires (all encased together and coming from the front of the trailer) connected to a single BLACK wire (coming from the back of the trailer). The single BLACK wire coming from the back of the trailer has been chewed off or severed for some reason. That appears to be a problem to me. But I don't know what this may be affecting???
B. There is a metal component (lower right hand portion of the diagrams) that appears to be very old and rusted. That appears to be a problem to me and possibly should be replaced??? What is that and what does it do???
C. There are different colored wires connected to different colored wires. Does this seem to be an issue???
D. I know I can purchase an Owner's Manual from Secreterial Services ... but does anyone know if these manuals contain wiring diagrams???

Can anyone educate me on how the wiring connections should be or assist me with some suggestions or answers to the questions? Thanks in advance.

I wish I had my '63 here to help you... what a mess! Ok, the "box" is a resettable 12v fuse... it "should" be in line with your main 12v feed to the trailer... but it doesn't appear to be... IF your pigtail is wired right......
Blue should be your trailer brakes...from pigtail to the brakes...
White is your ground...
Black should be your main 12v feed (for the 12v things in the trailer).. going to your univolt (if you have one.. I'm not sure when they started using them... there's not one on my '63). That's where the fuse SHOULD be... not in line with the brakes...

The rest are running, turning, brake lights...

What's working and not on the electrical side of things with the trailer?
Do the brakes work?

Looks like you have foam on the bottom of the wood.... does it look orginal?

The rusty thing you mentioned is a self-resetting circuit breaker on the charge wire.

Thank you for the information TomW. I meant to reply with thanks earlier and just now got around to it. I see you are going to be at the Texas Vintage Rally ... I hope to have the opportunity to meet you there. I have admired the photos of your Airstream many times and I hope we can have ours looking as nice as yours sometime soon.

Hey Tom I appreciated those electrical diagrams, those are hard to find. I just bought a 1967 overlander international and am completely gutting the whole thing and starting from scratch while trying to salvage anything I can. I pasted those diagrams to my desktop but they're fuzzy when I print them out. Is there anyway you could send me a clearer and bigger copy? Also if you have any advice about rewiring I would be very grateful. I have a friend who is doing the plumbing but I think I might have to to the wiring myself... Thanks

Gotcha covered

I emailed you the originals I scanned from my owner's manual. The resolution is the best my scanner will do, so I hope it works for you.

One of the moderators (Lee?) has the same manual. He/she might have a better scanner if what I emailed you doesn't work.

Would a moderator please delete jaminalee's email address to protect the member from spambots?

Moderators can't remove an e-mail address unless the OP (original poster) asks us to. Some see it as over-helping...

You can purchase a copy of the original owner's manual from Airstream. I ordered my on line. airstream.com, there are tabs across the top, 1st is AS Store, 2nd is Airstream Manuals. They are priced @ $30 In the manual there are all the various sizes of the year with lots of information. Yes, the electrical, plumbing etc. diagrams are in the manual. The best $30 that I have wasted in this vast rehab of my '68 Tradewind.

Used to be, moderators would rush to delete posted email addresses, and gently urge the OP to use the forum's contact system.

Why that way of thinking has been changed is foreign to me.

Yep, That was done in the past and the rules have changed.

I have sent jaminalee the docs. Send them as large as I could. I hope they don't have dial-up.

I would enjoy reading why this change benefits this forum's new members who may not know what a spambot is.

Would someone mind emailing me the same larger version of that wiring diagram? Am having similar issues with my 68 Tradewind. Thanks!
