I have a '74 Trillium. There is a green wire and a white wire, both with round post connectors on the ends. The previous owners who had the camper, always said they used electricity so, obviously someone else before them put a battery inside the seat gaucho-left side. Which wire is the positive wire. I have put a battery outside on the front frame with red and black wiring already threaded inside the seat area ready to pigtail (if I can do that with the other two wires) could this be done? The RV place down the road from me, want to take out all the old wiring and put in new! That is NOT an option for me! Electrically, everything works just fine. Does anyone have any suggestions?
I am guessing that you mean that all of the AC powered electric works fine?
There is no way that you can know about the DC side that you are questioning if you can not even connect it to the Battery?
Or do you have a power converter in the Trill already????
A converter would take the AC power from the street and convert it to DC for the devices that the battery would power also. When plugged in to city AC power they will run on the converter and when self-contained they will run from the battery.
If none of this makes sense to you, I would find someone that can unravel and test the DC side for you or help you determine EXACTLY what you have in the trailer for DC wiring/Devices.
You also state that rewiring is NOT an option.
Sometimes in these older trailers it is a requirement. If you run some new wire yourself then you can at least be certain of its condition.
In my 1300 there was exactly 1 wire going to 2 lights
on the cabinet above the sink. The wall behind the sink is hollow so it really does not get any easier than that if you do have to run a wire.
Mine had no other battery operated devices at all.....when I got it!
I am not trying to scare you but there is really not enough info given to be able to give you a definitive answer.
We really need more info if available to give good recommendations.
