I recently inherited a 1922 Chevy G20 Glaval Conversion Van(The Love Machine) from a dear friend that recently passed away. As I have been going through the interior I have discovered the electrical in the back end ie; all of the conversion accessories, have no power I have two switched lights in the front work fine, but the four in the back have no power. The aftermarket stereo has power, but wont turn on. A friend told me there is a control panel for the power, but I have not been able to locate this panel. The captains chairs have been removed as well as the fold down bed, so you would think I would be able to locate it pretty easy.. but no luck. any ideas on where to look?

I also have been having an odd issue with the passenger door window and would like to ask opinions. Passenger door window switch from either the drivers door or passenger door will only roll the window up a bit at a time.. then if you let is sit for a bit, it will roll it up a bit more. then you have to let it sit for a bit longer and it will roll up the window a bit more. This is very odd and It seems to be the window motor? at least that is what I am thinking and would just like to put it out there for other opinions before I go all out and replace the window motor.

Thanks for any assistance and have a great day!

Hello joanbmat, and Welcome to the site! Sad your friend passed, but The Love Machine Lives on!

Alas the Conversion Vans are not in the best of shape, and wiring issues are common. Short circuits, faulty grounds abound. Trace what you can with a test light and ohm meter. The factory wiring diagrams will show the conversion provision for auxiliary wiring, such as tow and conversion packages. This will indicate the 12 volt source location on the vehicle fuse panel.

Some conversions have a separate auxiliary fuse panel, my B350 Campervan does, the B250 Conversion does not. All of the wiring is buried in cabinets, behind panels and in bulkheads. Not easy to troubleshoot.

There is usually enough Spaghetti contained in Van conversion wiring to feed a small family. It's amazing. So study the basics, and proceed logically.

I'd get a hold of a factory service manual, and lubricate the snot out of that window regulator first thing. Motor may be toast, but a lube never hurts. It probably needs it.

Go Love Machine!

Welcome to the site Joan ... a 1922 or 1972 ?

The window motor is worn ... may need replacing. Could be as easy as a dirty track.
