Question 71 Overlander

Can anyone tell me where the inverter/converter switch thing is on my "new" 1971 overlander? It seems, when plugged into 110 elec., only my electrical outlets work. No lights, nothing, unless hooked up to deep cycle, marine battery. Could this just be a fuse thing. I checked the fuses and they all look fine. Any answers or suggestions anyone? -Steve

If your Overlander is similar to mine, the converter (Univolt) is plugged into an electrical outlet in the cabinet where it is house - - that would be the first place that I would suggest checking to be sure that electric power is available. If you find that electric power is not available to that outlet, then the first place that I would check is the circuit breaker box to be sure that both circiuit breakers have been reset. If you still don't have power, I would look for a switch either very near that cabinet or near the primary sleeping area that might serve the purpose of activating that outlet. If you have power to the outlet, but no "humming" from the Univolt, the Univolt is likely on the disabled list.

Good luck with your investigation!
