Lightbulb Hunter I Interior 12V Lights

Hello, my husband and I recently bought a 1974 Hunter I and are in the process of restoring it. There are three 12V wall lights that don't work. Does anyone know how these lights are powered? Our Hunter I does not have a 12V battery and no obvious hookups for a battery. On one of the wall lights there is a female receptable but nothing to plug into it. Does anyone have experience with these kind of lights? Lights are on either side of the "wall" to the right of the stove/ice box and the third light is mounted on the cupboard wall opposite the stove. Did batteries come with the Hunter RV's? Also, were there circuit breakers/fuse boxes? We'll appreciate your help and feedback. Thanks!

Your Hunter is a cousin to my Trailswest Campster, so I know exactly what you're referring to...

Those 12V bulkhead lights are/were only powered when plugged into your tow vehicle. There was NO onboard battery originally. The plugs to which you refer are probably a 110V receptacles. These are energized when your trailer is "hooked up" to "shore" power (at the campground or at home) via a heavy duty extension cord. And yes, there should be a circuit breaker box on board—no doubt hidden from plain sight.

Robert, thanks much for your help and info. This will get us started on a hunt for the breaker box. It must be really hidden because we've redone the wooden seat and have cleaned and painted inside the cupboards. Any suggestions about where to look?

If you can see where your 11OV electrical hook-up port is on the outside, I believe you will find the circuit breaker box nearby on the inside. Obviously, the two are connected...

My breaker is under the sink, (I think it is a 15) with the electrical cord to plug, this feeds out thru a hole in the floor. I have 2 of those battery powered lights and they are wired to run off my battery that I have mounted on the tounge. There was a third smaller light on the other side but it was wired to work the same way. There is an electrical light next to the battery one on the drivers side wall above the bed.
