came to me with no battery
and some obvious alterations to the wire harness. Looks like the original connection to the vehicle was a 6-way and someone added a 6-to-4 connector, which works for me because that's what my minivan has, but I guess this means no charging the battery
from the TV. I have other plans tho.
Once I worked up the courage to remove the 5 yards of electrical
tape, I discovered that a PO had cut all the wires just to add about 2 feet of wire to the harness length. Darn! I was hoping there was some kind of junction to connect the black and white wires to a battery
on the tongue.
So, right now I have no way to use the 2 12v lights
already in the trailer, and I'd like to add a 12v port for charging cellphone, laptop, etc.
So, how does one go about adding this connection to the existing wiring that I have?
I have a Group 27 battery all charged and waiting on float on a Battery Tender (which I would also like to install in the Scamp
to charge the battery when I'm camping with shore power). I also have a 50w solar panel
and controller that I'd like to add to the system, so I can boondock in luxury.
But FIRST I need the group's vast wisdom how to add the battery (which I'd like to place on the tongue) back into the electrical
system. Please keep it in simple terms. Electrical
really confuses me quickly.
Thanks so much for your help.
