I am the recent owner. The wiring harness works. Standard four pin to my truck, and all of the brake bulbs work. So I can drive!
But none of the interior electrical
works. I plug the external plug outside the door into city power, and everything inside is dead.
My goal when I have city power is to be able to access 120volt through a standard electrical
outlet (for a laptop, small box fan, etc) and then have 12volt for some LED lighting
. I prefer the low profile of LED bulbs, anyways. I would like to use the existing wiring as much as possible.
When I am off-grid, I would like a tiny battery
, just enough to power LEDs at night for a weekend trip. I would love for the switch over to “off-grid” mode to be as painless and easy as possible.
If anyone can point the way on how to set this up I would be grateful. I have seen recommendations for a WFCO WF-8735 unit. I like that the fusebox is accessible. Seems smart. How would this work with a tiny battery
? Any recommendations?
At the outset, I am uncertain on how to access the area beneath the closet where the exterior electrical
comes in. I have absolutely no idea what's in there. The whole area seems designed to be unserviceable. I am really reluctant to dremel a hole in the base of the closet just as an exploratory mission. Does anyone have photos of how to approach this in the most unobtrusive way possible?
