I have a transformer that's humming. Originally I thought it was a bad univolt but after reading through the treads, I have come to realize that the '66 Caravel
has a transformer that coverts the 110AC to 19 and 12 VAC. The coverted AC goes to the univolt which some how converts the 12 and 19 VAC to DC feeding the lights, pump, and fan (see below for wiring diagram provided by azflycaster).
I just came from the local RV supply store and they have never seen this setup before. They said usually the 110V AC comes in and goes straight to a coverter or univolt. In the '66 Caravel
case, I have the 110 AC going to the transformer, then to the univolt.
I'm not sure what to do at this point, I am thinking about pulling the transformer, use the 110V feed to feed an intellipower 9100, and hook up the 19VAC and 12VAC as the intellipower DC output. Will this work?
Thank you in advance for any responses, Cosmo9404

I have attached a picture of:
1. The Caravel
transformer with the 110V input and the two outputs (12VAC and 19VAC)
2. A picture of the front face of the univolt.
