Welcome 62 TW.

Lights, water pump and the furnace work off the battery.

Measure the battery voltage when plugged in. If it is over 13v it has a converter.

I have a 63 trade wind , the 12v system on mine is totally separate from 110v volt. I put a battery in mine and was surprised that every light and even the 12v power port in the bathroom worked. From what I understand there is no univolt on pre 64, the only way to charge battery is to plug into tow vehicle or add a converter.
