    The battery compartments are sealed to the outside, as they are plastic and not open to the interior of the trailer. In my 1976, the battery compartment was below the stove, right behind the entry door at floor level. The converter was mounted on a "factory "shelf" above the battery box. Not sure where the battery is on your trailer, but it should be in a sealed from the interior compartment, but vented to the outside. Battery compartments are only big enough for the battery in any trailers that I installed the converters. In all cases they were mounted in the same location as the original Univolt converters, using all the original wiring and in most cases the original fuse system. It is about a 2-3 hour job in the older units, but in the '90's trailers about an hour job. Tale your time and it isn't a hard job. The hardest part in my 1976 was removing the stove/oven to access the univolt.

    Just wondering if you replaced your tail & back up lights with the led lights? If so, can you post a picture, do you find them much brighter? Any tips/tricks to the install? Where did you purchase them (who manufactured them, I'm in Canada so hoping to find a set around here). We have a 23ft 1971 Safari too
