If the battery is good, then there should be power at the starter solenoid. The solenoid is connected to the starter.The solenoid is energized by the ignition key. When the key is turned, the starter solenoid allows power to feed the starter. Try tapping the starter solenoid while turning the key. Have a friend help and use something non metallic to tap the solenoid. Good luck!
One variety of answer would be to say that the full perimeter is 2x(80+14) = 188 linear feet. Since you're posting in Cars and Trailers, I'm taking this to be a long movable trailer instead of a Mobile Home Park type trailer. Take out what would be there for wheel area. Then divide by the length of the cinderblock. For a 18" cinderblock (1.5 feet), 188 / 1.5 = 125-1/3 blocks. If it's just blocks, 125 may squeeze in. If you're talking about building a wall, figure in another 1/2" for mortar between, which will take you to about 122 (no allowance for wheels). If this is a mobile home type trailer and the blocks are what the trailer is resting on, then it'll be a little more involved, depending on the width of the blocks for when you turn the corners. In general, it'll be 120-122 blocks per layer, times how many block heights there will be to the height you want the home to be at.
The only way the engine would keep running smoothly (not engine pre-ignition running) is that the coil is still getting power. If you look at the coil you will see the supply side of the coil comes from the start switch. There is where you should "start" checking. I recommend you also check the start relay for sticking. Something in the starting circuit is not cutting off the voltage to the coil...allowing power to the distributor points.
Sounds like your on the right track. The thermal switch closes when the temp reaches a certain temp and this allows power to the fans to draw more cool air into the engine bay. I would start there or you may have a short on that circuit also allowing the power to go to the fans continuously.
Don't know if you're still looking for a solution to this or not. The '88 Pace Arrow has THREE batteries. (I have one parked out front). Two of the batteries are connected in parallel and these are the "auxiliary" batteries. The third battery is the motor/start/engine battery. Unless someone has rigged something up, I'd bet your engine battery is missing entirely. The engine battery is responsible for vehicle starting and _anything_ that comes in a normal vehicle... ie everything in the dash. The auxiliary batteries run everything in the back... lights, water pump, etc.
Try pressing the auxiliary start button near the key when you turn on the key and see if anything happens. This is effectively a "self jump start". If it does, I'm sure your engine battery is either bad, not connected properly or missing. If it doesn't, it's probably still a battery issue, but there's probably something else wrong too.
