Installing DC Power Into The Sleeping Quarters Of Horse Trailer


Hi , I have weekend horse trailer, has no electricity inside sleeping quarters. What is steps to do this. Thank you.

For DC electricity, I can help you out. You can run a 10 gauge wire like # 10-1-1 sold by the foot from a 6-way or 7-way connection from the 12V to a deep cycle 12V battery and then run the battery to a ground on the trailer. You can use a solenoid like # TR118665 in your tow vehicle if you want to ensure you don't drain the vehicle battery when your truck isn't running. This will isolate the deep cycle 12V trailer battery.

From your battery you can run a power inverter like # WC2600 to run your accessories. If you use the 12V power plug, you can use the 12 Volt Outlet Kit, 20 amps # RM-9332. This will give you all of the accessory options you need for small AC applications or you can use DC accessories from fans like # PTW1658 to a heater/fan/light like # PTW5009.

If you are looking for AC wiring directly, you will need to talk with a trailer dealership or electrician.
