Hey you got a great deal. Don't see the pic however for that price it's impossible to lose. 4 new tires and a wheel bearring repack/ replacement just cost me 700 bucks Canadian.

My hi-lo has the same floor plan, 1985, and is a 20' funchaser.

The vin plate/sticker is on the passenger/door side of the tongue....near the trlr body. Mine was covered with paint, several coats.
You will need that info and site cleaned for state inspection for plates.
Sturdy and stable trlr.

Bummer about the fridge. Limits your camping

Congrat's on your purchase, good price, too! Keep in mind that the old fridge would be 34 years old. The odds of it working correctly would be fairly slim. A replacement similar to what came in the trailer is more than what you have invested right now. A smaller fridge like you have generally runs on about 80-150 watts and takes about 250 watts on start-up. A good inverter about 400 watts or so and a dual 6 volt battery setup will do wonders for you. It's a thought anyway.

I was thinking maybe a used fridge maybe but the hi lo is not being used for travel it will be a t my lake lot for camping there to so the small Wal Mart fridge would be a option

The change over looks great. Big difference! Only thing I question is the fire extinguisher mounted over the door. Talk about a real head knocker, just saying...........

I've got one- and I usually cant remember how it functions unless I [play with it. It is a second switch for some bathroom lights - In other words it turns on or shuts down a whole portions of the circuitt----but I recall thinking it was terribly redundant for a space that small where all other switches are easily reachable.

I have 2 on the back wall.
One cuts power to the light and vent fan above the shower.
I was told the second one cuts power to the AIr Conditioner.

Since I don't have an air conditioner, it does diddly. lol

I also have two above the door
One turns on the outside light by the door
The other turns on one of the interior lights. I leave the switch under the interior light in the on position. I then can control that light with the switch by the door.

The idea being I can turn a light on in the trailer without fumbling around inside in the dark.
