    Pop-up camper electrical questions
    I recently purchased a 1990 Starcraft pop up but the lights and fridge don't work. All the wires have been cut an re-spliced so not sure what should go where.

    I have the main 120v running into the box (converter?). There is a blue, red, and white coming out of the box along with a ground wire and a regular electrical wire. The ground goes to the frame. The electrical wire goes to a outlet and that outlet works.

    The other wires are all spliced. Red goes to a black, blue goes to 2 other blues, and white goes to 3 other whites. All of those wires go through the floor to the various other locations but nothing on the end of those locations work.

    Can anyone help?

    There is a breaker box under the dining seat. You will just have to check continuity of the circuits, either by ohms or voltage. Voltage with power on, Ohms with power off. Do you have a VOM?

    Well after trying every combination I determined the fridge just doesn't work. Thought it was the rat's nest of wires but every combination and messing around with other things didn't help. I was able to get the lights on with the way it's currently wired.I then replaced fridge with regular one and added an outlet on the regular 110/120 wire that runs from the box. I'm good to go as long as I have electric hook up.
