1985 holiday rambler imperial battery location?

I just recently got a 1985 33 foot holiday rambler tow behind and can not locate the battery to run the interior lights when camping where there is no electric hook ups. Does anyone have any idea where it might be ? Thanks in advance !

I don't really understand. Are you sure you have a battery that is in place on your trailer? Do you see any loose wires hanging in the area of the tongue?

Most trailers have a tray for batteries on the tongue, between the trailer and the propane tanks. Best of luck in your travels.

It should be behind the porpane tanks in front of the camper between the tongue hope this helps.

I had a 1980-something bumper pull and the couch was against the front wall and the battery was under the couch if I remember right.

Also, look for a ventilated door. My fifth wheel has a small vented door and a slide. I understand that its because of being a 5er but worth a look
