restoring a 1972 viking pop-up camper

maybe this has more to do with vehicles, but... we recently purchased a 1972 viking pop-up camper which we would like to restore, its in pretty good shape as it is, but having previously been tent campers we know nothing about the plumbing, electric, heating and have had no luck finding any helpful information online... please help!!!

Thumbs up Welcome to our forums!

We surely may be of some help.................we just need to know exactly what you need help with.

In addition to describing what you want to fix, pictures of the camper and area of concern would be invaluable.
You can upload pictures to a free site like Photo Bucket and provide a link or use the button above the reply box to have images from your photo host appear in your post.

at this point we first need a basic uderstanding of how the plumbing and electric work, as there is no user guide.
the plumbing as far as i can tell consists of only a water tank, and a sink...no faucet. i think we found where the drain tube connects to the body to the drains spout, but what faucet do we need and how do we hook it up??

There are different types of plumbing systems used in campers and we have no idea what you have.
There are ones that are pressurized and ones that use a manual hand pump or an electric pump.

If you do not know what type you have we need some pics of what your connections and water tank look like.
We really can't be much help if we don't have the details on what you have.

Electricial will depend if it has a hookup for 120 power. If not it will only run off batteries. 12 volt lights and such have very lax rules so your pretty much just run two wires rated for DC.

How are you going about the restoration? Are you planing to get it back to how it was in 1972 or are you going to try to bring it up to today's conveniences?

A site like this may be of help: Circuit Breakers - 12V - RV PARTS OUTLET I just googled "rv parts" This might be another one: GO-RV.com - RV On-line Catalog
