Maybe a problem

Well I am trying to get some lights on in my 71 Tradewind.
I ordered a new converter from Best Converters 45amp. I look at my Univt and it is wired with all red wires and just 3 circuits being used. I was hoping to find the pink, Browns and all the other colors that the wiring diagram shows.

Do you guys think this is a rewire?

The trailer looked very original.

I have to figure out how and post pictures when I get a chance.

Take a long enough wire directly from the battery. That wire will be hot so cap or tape it till you are ready to use it. One by one remove a wire from the output of the power supply and touch the battery wire to it. See what is then powered and you can identify which circuit is which. You can the label them as to the colors of your schematic for future reference.

I would put a fuse in the wire just in case you have a short or touch the ground/common side of the circuit.
