Yeah not sure on whats going on in there right now, like i said it has a old fuse box and it looks like 2 tradition house plugs are in there, ill have to take some pictures of them.. The stove was gas and the fridge was just an icebox no electrical needed. But i ripped em both out they were nasty.

Coming out the side on the back.

That stuff coming out that back was the original 120 volt wiring. Boy! I sure wouldn't hook anything to that! But, that's just me. It might not be as bad as it seems. I'm no electrician.

The stuff on the front was for a plug that was plugged into your tow vehicle.

Was there any 12 volt lights mounted in the trailer? Some of the really old ones had no 12 volt system at all. They had a couple of 120 volt receptacles for when you were plugged in and then they had gas lights in the trailer that ran off of the propane bottle.

That's an awesome looking trailer. If you're going to gut and rebuild it internally I would definitely add all new 120V wiring and a new power distribution converter/charger and a 30A cord. Run some 12v for a vent fan, stove vent and water pump. Basically make it like a modern TT built into a vintage chassis.
