That is not a 1300, it is a 1977 4500 Deluxe. What gives it away is the furnace
is on the curb side. So, SCORE!. You can confirm this by taking a look at the data sheet that should be on the inside of the closet door. At the top right will be the serial number. Because your trailer is a 4500 it will be in this format: 45-110xxxx a 1300 serial number would look like this 13-110xxxx. Where the xxxx is the sequential serial number. If you post a picture of this sheet, (please) then I will add your trailer to the growing Trillium
serial number list:
Serial numbers on a Trillium
Take the cushions out. They are completely synthetic, so any mold will wash out. Probably just take the covers off and wash them, then spray the foam down with some mold killer. The covers are original. If they have been kept out of the sun, they should be fine. If not they may disintegrate in the washing machine.
Once you get the cushions out of the trailer, then get a good spray bottle, and a 10% Bleach solution and spray the walls with it. The insulation is called Ensolite, or elephant skin. What you can see is vinyl, under that is a black foam. Also completely synthetic, so mold is still not a problem.
The trim on the ensolite has come off. Still not a problem. It snaps right back.
Testing the electrical
is simple. Mainly because there is not much to it. Get the plug repaired on your cord. Plug it in. The converter, under the furnace
has a switch labeled Batt, off, Mains, or something like that. Switch to Mains, and turn on the lights
. If they come on the converter works. If not, try pushing in the two buttons, which are breakers. The left one is a 10A 120 VAC breaker the other is for DC.
The stove requires that you light
it with a match or lighter. Connect a propane
tank. Turn it on. Turn on the gas valve for a burner and hold a lighter near it. This may take some time if the propane
tank has been disconnected.
is also simple. Connect a propane
tank, take the bottom cover off, and open the little pilot light
port. There are two dials on the gas valve. One is the thermostat, the other is the on / pilot / off control. Turn the control to pilot and push it in. Put a lighter flame into the pilot port. Eventually the pilot light
will ignite. This may take some time if the propane tank has been disconnected. Keep pushing the control knob long enough for the pilot flame to heat the thermocouple, then let go and turn it to on. Crank the thermostat up and looking through the pilot you should see the main burner come on.
is a bit more complex, and I will leave you to read the manual, in the Document Center on this site.
Your biggest problem, after title, is that the belly band has fallen off on the back of the trailer. This is not an easy fix:

I hope you don't have trouble titling your trailer, but I don't have a clue about how that works. The fact that the current owner thinks it is a 1300 would make me nervous.
