Where is the Battery ?

Hi, I just purchased a 1996 Sunline Solaris T-1740 and canít find the battery location. I see a hookup for one behind the tanks, but donít know where the one currently running the lights is.

If it's plugged in or connected to the tow vehicle the lights will work without a battery.

Yep, the converter unit in the trailer has a small battery charge output, which is enough to run some lights on the short term. It's not recommended to do this long term, but it can be done.

Similarly, your tow vehicle is wired with a charging wire, which the trailer has direct wired to the battery to charge it.
