Smile Power inverter

Hi. My name is Velma.
I own a 74 Boler. Can someone please help me, I want to set up I'm guessing a power inverter so I can run my 12volt appliances.
I have no fuse box, just a plug that hooks up at a campsite. I want to install a roof vent with fan, and definitely need more lights.
Any help would be much appreciated.
Thank you in advance.

A converter will run the 12 VDC items and charge the battery from the 120 VAC campground hookup. Most have both the converter and a battery but a converter or other 12 volt power supply alone will work if you are plugged into electric. My sisters Scamp had nothing but a battery charger to run things.

Velma, an inverter converts 12vdc from a battery into 120vac. As stated, the converter changes 120vac to 12vdc, which all the things you mention need. If you do not have experience with electricity, please find someone who does to help you.
