Another old Univolt

I previously replaced a Univolt with an Intellipower in a '74 Overlander with no problems, but things seem less clear now that I plan to do the same thing in my 1964 Globetrotter (see attached pic) despite having read everything I can find, including the manual.

Can someone tell me which side is the 12V and which is 120, the "sides" being the wires that go into the wall and the wires that go to the spaghetti behind the shore power switch?

The manual refers to 12V and 17V circuits, but I don't know what might use or have used 17V...the ceiling vent fan maybe?

There are two additional disconnected wires that disappear into the wall. Might these be the former 17V leads?

Thanks,

...Ray

Way back when, shore power was sometimes referred to as 117 volts. So, you could have 12 volt and 117 volt, AFAIK there is no 17 volt needed or supplied.

I think you are right about the ceiling fans. The fans ran off an ac tap on the old converters that put out 17Vac.

RMS of 17Vac = 12Vdc.
