Reference: circuit breaker question

Part Reference: bussmann BP/CBC-40HB-RP

That should do it. Mine was screwed into the frame on the off-door side. Strange why that location was chosen, but whatever.

Hope that helps.

Joe

P.S. I'll post pictures shortly...

I couldn't edit my original post or reply to it again, so here's the photos.




For perspective, the item in white is the bottom of my propane tank tray, which on my model, sits up against the front of the trailer.

the solution

similar to the post joe put up, there was a breaker (fuse block) along the path of the wires from the front battery just under where the trailer body starts. It was bolted to the frame and well hidden above the bulk of the wires. here is a photo of it

One other possiblility. Check the ground from the battery to the frame. I had no headlights one morning and upon investigating why I found the ground wire had been connected to the frame with an aluminum trim screw. They used an oversized terminal ring connector and a washer to keep it secure. What they didn't do was remove any paint on the frame where the wire was connected. So the connection was made by just the threads on the screw. A bit of corrosion and no headlights. I wire wheeled the area of the frame to remove some of the paint, drilled a hole through the frame and bolted that sucker in place. Then sprayed the connection with battery terminal protector.
This would also explain why it works off the tow vehicle. It's getting a ground from the connection there.
