The wire on your TV running to 7 pin connector is probably only between 12 or 14 guage wire (and yes, it is fused. Mine wasn't there from the factory). This will charge your battery but, will take hours. If you disconnect the battery, then maybe, you could have gotten the slides in (all the power the TV was putting out was going directly to the dead battery).

BTW, where were you camping this past weekend? We were in Gettysburg but, didn't loose power (flickered but, never went out).

Had the exact thing happen to me in sturbridge this past weekend word for word..The only variation is the CG manager said I could leave the camper on site until this coming weekend. A Generator seems like the only option when power is out and it is cold. Need to stock lots of fuel for it because here in CT> over 700,000 homes are still with out power, and the gas stations with power are OUT of gas. The DW is just starting to get over it.
