No 12 volt power??

When I am pluged into shore power or pluged into my truck everything is fine. When I unplug...no power in the trailer at all. What gives? Is my batt bad, or is there a fuse or breaker somewhere I am missing?

Check for a blown 30A 12V fuse close to the camper's battery.

Shankster, unless you have a VOM there is no way to tell if a fuse,fuseable link or breaker has tripped. They are pretty cheap at places like Harbor Freight (less than 20 bucks) and should be in every took kit in every RV on the road.

most newbies cross the battery wires and either blow a inline fuse or a resettable breaker.
they are along the tongue, between the battery and the front of the trailer.

Not sure if this helps - but does your unit have a battery disconnect? If so, perhaps the battery switch was turned to the disconnect position by someone without your knowledge.

My troubleshooting "Rule of Thumb."

If it worked before; but does not now (no warning failure); it is usually something simple.

Check fuse
Check each wire terminal for corrosion
Look for missing insulation (like rodent damage)

After that it is a "Crap" shoot.
