Wiring a trailer

I have a ’04 Featherlite GN with a 4ft short wall and would like to wire it up so I can have a refrigerator, microwave, a heater (the microwave and heater probably wouldn’t be able to run at the same time to avoid popping the breaker) a light, and a few plug ins for things like charging my cell phone and a radio. I do have basic wiring knowledge and would like to tackle this with myself and my BF but Im not quite sure what approach I should take with were to enter the cord from the outside into the trailer and how to exactly mount the outlet boxes. Has anyone done their own trailer or have pictures of a “home” job? It would be nice to get some pointers, Thanks!

Welcome back!

I did a wiring job on a GN I had many years ago and got a lot of advise as well as the proper parts from a travel camper supply store.

I think I will have to stop in at a RV place to get the electrical components (plug mostly)

What amps did you wire your trailer for? I was thinking 30amps would be more then sufficient and then have a small breaker box and have my first outlet being GFI. I am lucking out though since my BF is wiring his garage this weekend with a co-worker that does electrical work so I might be able to sneak the extra wire for my trailer...

I also did find this website http://todd.redwrench.com/Electrical.htm which is a good step-by-step on finishing a trailer- even though mine wont be near that nice :)

Camping world in Rogers. If they don't have it - Northern is just down the road from there.
