Hi again-
I bought the 2001 Coleman Redwood. Great shape. Tried it over the 3 day weekend. Fantastic. Had it plugged into a Honda 3000 generator. When we got home, I started really looking over the camper in detail. That's when I realised there was no battery on the tongue. Then I noticed there were no 12 v lights. Just 2 interior lights that run off the shore power cord and an amber light outside. There IS a converter. This is for running my furnace fan 12v,and 12 v for fridge? There is no 12v lighting..is that correct? Is this common?
What if I didn't have the Honda? I'd ALWAYS have to be on shore pwr? I couldn't find any cables for a battery on the tongue..just an empty battery tray..Weird. Thanks in advance.

Thanks Dean-
No plug, but I found a black and a white wire cut by the tray from the main cable. Also figured out that ALL is 12v except outlets.
Thanks again. Man that was freakin' me out!
