Hey Derek, at the top of the forum page, to the right, click on "more" and then select document center. I believe you will find all the documentation you will need for your wiring and everything else.

Be a little more specific about what is wrong with your wiring. I'm sure someone on here has experienced the same problem.

Did you put a meter on your battery? Do you have any power?

Do you have a florescent light in your kitchen that runs only on shore power only - does it work?

Do you have a converter? You may find some fuses inside the converter box that may be blown assuming you have already checked the two inline fuses - one at the battery and one just inside the trailer where the wiring comes into the trailer on the passenger side. Often inside the hatch behind the wall covering.

Do you have an "on board" battery or just when it is connected to the vehicle?

Good. That takes the 7 pin out of it for the moment.

First thing I would check now are your grounds on the frame. Do you know if you have power out of your convertor?

Derek

You can usually place you hand on the converter and feel it humming or the minifan blowing as a start. Invest in an inexpensive test probe with a LED light and an alligator clip that checks for 6/12 vdc.

Im sure you will nail it down with all the help onboard.

If it's an older Scamp W/O converter it has two fuses in the 12V system. One on the outside near the battey. (Sometimes long gone.) The other is under the front bench on the drivers side. ( Near where the wires come into the shell.) This is for all the inside DC stuff.

My 1986 Scamp 13 didnt have a converter 12 volt Dc and 120 volt Ac were divorced. 12 volt had one 20 amp fuse at the battery no fuse inside.
