univolt location

Do you have a rear bath model or a center bath? In our '74 rear bath Ambassador, it was located under the fiberglass shelf on the side of the tub. It was accessed through an opening at the bottom of the wall separating the bathroom and closet.

Listen for the hummm?

So, it sounds like it may be somewhere between the front of your trailer and the rear of your trailer. How about plugging into an outside power source and listen for the "hummmm" of the Univolt? Good luck with your search -- this is what makes AS ownership so special.

Mine is in the back closet under the shelf. I had to remove the shelf to get to it but I have a 1975 25' Land Yatch

Welcome to the AirForums, Rusty!

Look behind your gas bottles. Is there a vented opening there covered by a lip of protruding metal? If so, then your Univolt is right behind there. Going inside, you should have an access panel door to your fuse box at the very front of the trailer. The Univolt is right below that. You'll have to remove whatever is in the way in order to access it. It should be housed inside an ABS box with a plywood cover. Take off the cover and voila! Univolt.

Did you find it yet? Try curbside rear corner, under the closet's lower shelf at plywood floor level. jim

Thanks so much for the reply and info--you (and a few others were right on) One more question if I may. THE SITUATION: When I connect the battery and plug into 110V power, my 12V lights and 110V resepticles etc work great. If I disconnect the battery, the 12V lights do not work but all 110V power does. QUESTION: Is it normal for the battery to stay connected to provide 12V power with this 1978 model year AS or is the univolt not doing the job? Rusty WBCCI #5871
