No power from truck to lift landing gear

2017 F250 my RV dealer said fuses position 27 and 37 vacant needed to give power to battery when plug connected to truck. Any thoughts?

Can't say specifically about your truck, but many tow ready TVs do not have the fuses or relay installed by factory. For many, the fuse and relay are in the glove box when delivered. You should be able to find it in manual. Also if it has a relay, it will only provide power when the TV is on. This is to prevent a drain in the trailer from killing the TV battery.

Ford dealer said my 2017 F-250 came with fuses already installed. Haven't had any issues. My F-150 had to have a fuse installed. Hope this helps.

Check the charge circuit at the connecter. If no power take a look at your truck manual to identify the fuse number and location of the trailer charge circuit. Ford undersized that fuse and they often blow if you operate the landing gear with a weak trailer battery. Replace the 20A fuse with a 30A.

I have a 2017 F350. A lot of talk about this on Ford truck forum. Bottom line seems to be you don't need certain fuses, you get power to the plug after stepping on brake pedal for first time after starting engine and trailer connected. I really don't know those fuse positions you are talking about but it appears to come configured correctly from factory as is. I haven't experimented with my fifth wheel yet as it is in storage, but I think you are good to go according to the Ford truck forum.

Just a thought. Our Sunseeker on the E450 ford chassis required the ignition to be on to power the trailer 12 volt circuit. Ignition off, no power. I learned that wiring the battery tender on our Jeep toad.
