I think that line from your lights would be 12V. Thatís good for the fan, but the ac needs 120. Iíve been told that there should be a ďjunction boxĒ to tie into in the cupboard over the stove if thereís 120V ac/microwave circuit prewired. Mine doesnít have that and it only has the single 120 circuit going into my panel so I think that all I have is the 120v going to the fridge. And I need a dedicated 20A 120V circuit for the ac.

So far, I havenít pulled the inside vent cover off or peaked under the fridge vent cover, because I donít want to mess with anything and possibly cause a leak. Still havenít had more than one day in a row without rain (pouring today), but it would be lovely to discover a chunk of romex coming out of the channel when I do

Yes that is correct I need 12 v for the fan . I believe you misunderstood I took off the inside vent cover which is purely aesthetic, no need to worry about creating a leak. When I took off the cover the trailer was prewired for 120 clearly visible running from a channel in the direction of the cupboard. I hope this helps

Thanks Bruce. Yes I must have misunderstood where you were going with that. I havenít touched the vent yet, but if the weather eases up a bit Iíll give it a peek. Itís just miserable and messy to muck around in this kind of weather.
It is encouraging that you found a 120V line in there! I will keep my fingers crossed 🤞🏼

Hi Deb Rick here see you are still looking for that wire. Remember in one of my last posts Check your panel if it is marked A/C good but to be really sure is take off cover and if there is a wire on the breaker or it is tagged in your panel. Than you are in great condition. Even if it isn,t there it is still pretty easy job. Good searching. Oh yes sorry I live in Langley Bc.

TBH Rick, I haven't even gone looking yet. It's been so wet here that I haven't done anything except inside fiddling. Byt I do know that there doesn't seem to be any red junction/breaker box in the cupboard, and there are only the 2 breakers in the panel - the 30A main, and the 15A "everything else" (labelled "original" - the control panel was replaced a few years ago.

I'll take the front off and see if there is a loose end not connected. If so then I'm in good shape. If not, I will be fishing wire. But won't be difficult, as you say. Just one more little thing that needs doing before I can attack the main project.

Just got a good look around the panel. Only the single 120 line going out. The 30A incoming main, and the single 120V branch circuit. So I will be fishing wiring. Couldn't do much else this morning - the rain started coming down in buckets (again) and the thunder & lightening (which turns my little dog into a nervous wreck). So back home, administered drugs, and settling in for the rest of the day.

The channel - empty I'm afraid to say.

Well got the vent cover down. The channel is there, but empty right through to the wall (I think it goes right through to the wall anyway). So it will be a bit of a fishing expedition. But at least there IS a channel there

Haven't quite figured out what the lovely orange bit is, but it is quite a ways back into the channel. Going to grab an old coat hanger or something and figure out exactly how far in that is.

I think the orange is your fiberglass shell.

I didn't think you'd find anything there...worth hoping though

I think it is the shell, yep. I didn't think there would be any thing there either, but, one can always dream! Grabbed an old wire coat hanger (didn't think I could find one here at home!), cut & straightened it and followed the channel to it's end - just inside the upper cabinet. Now it is possible there is a channel going front to back off of that, but if there is, I will never find it. However, it should be fairly easy to tap a hole through the top of that cabinet and feed the circuit through there to the panel. I am assuming that it goes off at a straight 90 degrees toward the wall from the vent opening. That's how it looks anyway.

Small victories.
