1961 Safari

I donít think the 12V is hooked up in my trailer. I took some pictures, welcome everyoneís input.

If you have unidentified wire hanging around, you may want to get a decent volt meter, some alligator clips and some 16ga wire. You can check continuity of the wires to let you know which ends belong to each other. If you donít know already, you need to identify which wires are which. Good luck, Bubba

Do I need a power supply to check or does the volt meter send the signal through the wire?

You don't need power to check continuity of a wire. The volt-ohm meter has batteries in it that provide a small bit of power.

I assume none of your 12v lights, or pump, or fans work. I'd start by testing the battery output voltage, and then insure voltage through the fuse panel, no blown or missing fuses.

Can you take a photo of the battery location and the 12v fuse panel? This may help.

Maybe the previous owner wanted a "park model" to live in full time.

So answering your question isn't feasible for me as I would have no idea what the previous owner might have done. You might be hiring an electrician to figure it out, trace the wiring and to build what you want in the trailer. It isn't a good "travel trailer" without a 12v system in my view, maybe I'm just used to my trailer.

Sorry I can't help...

David
