Wiring Schematic?

Hello All

I recently purchased a '71 Safari and have started restoration. The interior was completely gutted of all interior fixtures/ furnishings when I purchased it. I am looking for a wiring schematic for the trailer. I have wires poking out of the interior walls, only some of which read 12 VDC. I have white wires, purple wires, yellow, and black wires...even a few red ones for good measure. Also a diagram of the control center up front would be helpful, as all that is a mess too.

Your assistance would be greatly appreciated!

PS...My AC circuit seems to be intact, as all outlets are reading 120 VAC

Good luck, I have a 1980 interstate that the hot wire to the refrigerator doesn't have power. I have even called Jackson Center for information as to where it would be connected to get its power but they couldn't help, said a fire a few years ago burned their records.
I bet if the right person reads your post they have all the information you need. I am amazed at the information on here if the right person happens to read your post.

im going through the same thing right now with a 69 sovereign. the whole univolt system had been previously removed. 120v works. i just bought a battery over the weekend and hooked that up to the leads and it seems all of the 12v works, but i got lucky. im still going to relocate/rewire all of the main electrical and start fresh with all new re-wiring.

Thank you iceburg! That is very helpful! I just wish it were just a little bit higher resolution so I could make out the wire colors on the schematic. I will attempt to contact the person who posted the picture.
