Power in my T25 1985

Hello to all and more so to those who can help.
I have just brought a 1985 V W T25 from an elderly gent who had brought it a year ago but never used it. Now the problem is I dont seem to have any power in the back of the camper, Lights wont come on, fridge wont chill ect I have a switch behind the drivers chair, a simliar switch on the dashboard on the ignition side, I also have a plug and switch next to some trip switches in a cupboard, Ive tried all sorts of combinations with these switches but nothing seems to work yet, am I missing something, Ive made sure the switch on the front of the fridge is on the battery setting Please Please help anyone

Just a thought, but it might have a Leisure battery fitted and all the elec's could be run from there, check to see if the second battery is fitted and/or connected

My 97 plymouth voyager has s "stuck" slide for the heat and now can't get it to go to the heat side; worked fine last year. I'm an elderly lady and can't deal with the cold .. HELP please!?

The heater control lever is jammed due to a sticking air temperature control blend door inside the dash HVAC ducting, you must get that repaired to make it move freely again. You need to seek professional help to have this repaired.

Hello Trying to help elderly neighbor 1999 Cherokee ac does not work filled Freon to what sticker said compressor still not kicking on also no power to wire going to compressor this is an old lady that...

On the line going to the compressor,you will see a little bulb looking thing with a connector with two wires.Pull the connector and jump between the wires. If the compressor starts,pull the jumper and look for an ac fuse.You may also need to put freon in with the compressor running,using the method we just talked about. The shops like kragen or pep boys have a kit with a gauge. Use that so you know how much you need. good luck
