1963 Airstream Overlander 26' Schematic
Looking to troubleshoot why I have a DC short and would appreciate a schematic so if I can determine where the protective devices are so I can isolate circuits and troubleshoot.

Thank you!

If your trailer is built like mine, there is (was) a automatic reset circuit breaker at the battery and all of the 12 volt stuff is daisy chained along in one big circuit. Many of the splices are inside the walls making it worse. Mine also used one gage and same color wire throughout. My trailer had a paper schematic glued to the wall but it had no useful detail, simply what items had 12 and 110v run to them.
Sorry, not much help.

Circuit protection & Battery charging???
Also trying to figure out what/where the DC circuit protection is located. Do not see any in the battery compartment or wiring bundle in front belly pan of trailer.

How is the battery charged? Did this come with a charger when on shore power?

It appears that this has a power inverter for DC/AC located on bathroom wall?

Look under kitchen sink on wall there might be a resettable breaker per my husband, Chris

Success! It was on the back wall behind the sink. Thank you!
