1966 Roadrunner Trailer
My wife and I made a deal on a 1966 Roadrunner Trailer. Its in great condition considering. I'm not sure why she wanted it since we have a pretty nice Country Coach, but I think its a girl thing... "Glamping" and all that. We should be picking it up tomorrow or Tuesday and I'll try and post up some pictures.
I have one big task. I guess like a number of other older TT's, this one has no 12v in it. A couple 110 lights and receptacles, but not much else. Gas light that I don't care for.
My plan is to run a completely independent 12 system, which should be the simplest way to go. I'm guessing, add a battery, add a simple fuse panel, enough for 3-4 circuits, i.e. lights, small stereo, fan. I plan to wire in a small smart charger so when I'm plugged in, it will charge the battery. But I'm guessing that in order to charge the battery when I'm pulling it, I'll need to run a 12 wire from the truck wiring harness. That's my biggest question. I do want to charge the batter when I'm running, just not positive the best way to do that. I suppose I can wire it in parallel to the truck battery, but there must be a simpler way.
I'd appreciate any help I can get.
The othe issue I want to tackle is a simple awning. This thing is only about 15 ft long so it doesn't have to be much. Any suggestions?
