Is your battery disconnect switch on or off?

there is usually ALSO a battery disconnect switch in the trailer... it may be off...

you can try this...
1. unplug from the power pedestal
2. does anything that is 12 volts work? like interior lights? or the radio?

If nothing works then there is another switch that is OFF...

mine is a sliver knob close to the converter... pulls out and pushes in

this disconnects 12V battery from all non-essential items to help prevent battery from discharging...

hope this helps

Since you didn't list what PrimeTime trailer you have and it's not in your profile, I can only tell you that my 2016 TracerAir 255 has a battery disconnect switch.
It's in the docking station.

This is a prime example of personnel (electrical techs) on an assembly line having their own ideas. On my Sanibel, it was wired so that the hydraulic pump that operates the hydraulic levelers & hydraulic slides stays HOT all the time even with the battery switch OFF. On gmdually05's Sanibel, it was apparently wired so that the battery switch kills everything!

Just wish everybody was "on the same page" but then, we all wouldn't have anything to talk about here.
