1977 13' Trillium Electrical Problems

My camper has electrical issues! The outlets work for charging phone, fan, etc. but the lights don't come on even when hooked up to shore power. Has anyone else experienced this? It has worked in the past -- this is a problem that happened just a couple of weeks ago. Thanks, everyone for your input!

so if the outlets work for charging, are you referring to 110v standard ac outlets?
if so, its because you are plugged in to shore power, the don't work just from battery.
If you have cigarette lighter power ports, they were added after the factory, the lighting circuit may have a blown fuse, it would depend on the type of converter you have if the interior bulbs are definitely 12v bulbs, check the front of your power center and see if the pop-out circuit breaker is tripped, push it back in to reset, send us a picture of your power center, and we can give more precise info.

I replaced the original power center in my 1977. The old one was really bad. I put a thread about it, you can find it in the Trillium section.

Realize the trailer is 43 years old. While the fiberglass body and cabinets tend to last forever, other stuff does wear out. The old power center was nothing special, and a known battery boiler. I replaced with a PD4135. There are other choices out there too.
