Did ask to have a battery put in it to try, or to hook to shore power, we also keep ours in a storage lot, and have to hook the battery up before we can open anything, the truck puts out very little power, but I have a rockwood, not a blue ridge.

Went back out to unhitch it and went to raise the pin and nothing....NOTHING!!! Salesman thought we blew a fuse on our brand new truck, but we didn't and when our fiver is plugged in, everything works with no issues. Sooo he went to service dept and was told that this fiver needs a battery hooked up in order for it to work as it uses it as a conduit. WHAT??? Never ever heard of that. Is this true? I need confirmation from owners or may this thing have a major electrical problem?

our 5er has a sticker in the cabinet where the slide buttons are and says " you must have unit plugged in to move slides in and out "

Thanks everyone!!! Your all so kind and helpful. Just got back from the dealer and they put a battery in for us and we hitched up again, checked the brakes thru the pull test, lights, blinkers and raised and lowered the pin and it worked perfectly. Im happy again. Posted a picture of our truck and fiver hitched up on dealer lot on my profile page....not sure how to do it here yet.

JJ & Sandie 2 little chihuahuas and 1 kitty. 2011 Chevy 2500HD LT XC Diesel. 2008 Aruba fiver and seriously considering the 2010 Blue Ridge 3125RT.
