It kind of appears that a previous owner just went a little crazy with cutting and removing stuff.
Thomas, Thank you for all of your invaluable wiring advice! I do need to save on the costs, did not realize there was a fuse panel in the Uhaul converter box.

You might want to take a minute to read the parts and repair manuals that are posted here.

Fiberglass RV - Document Center - U-Haul


If nothing else, they show how it was originally and where the wiring was / is located.

Do you know for sure that your old converter is defective? It may just need to be wired to 110 volts AC

Thomas thanks for clarifying the fuse panel issue - I was scratching my head and wondering what was different about a UHaul that it required that extra fuse panel type ....
Diane - if you go into the documents center you will also find a simple wiring diagram for a Scamp - although I am sure the wiring on the UHaul may not have been done totally the same way I suspect the basic concept of how/where each wire should run and what it should be connected through is basically the same for most trailers.

The wiring diagram is in the UHaul manual, though not in a electrical schematic format i.e. it shows the wires and where they run physically. I have added the voltages to clarify.

Thomas, I have found the Document Center Wonderful! I have been reading it, and find the Parts and repair manual Great. I printed it all out and put it in a sectional 3 ring binder with pages marked that I refer to often. Thank you for the Voltage diagram!!! I am going to nickname you
"The Electric KING" You are appreciated.

I am not sure if the original converter is defective. I do know it is rusted and the main 110 cable has been cut off. I will get it tested. Thank you.

It is worth your trouble. There is not that much to go wrong with it - it may just need a little TLC and some paint.
