2012 grey wolf

Everything works when I plug in to electrical. When I'm on the battery, outside stuff works (awning, jack, light) but nothing inside lights radio etc won't work. Checked the fuses, gfi. Battery is charged. They said to check the inline fuse but can't find it. There's a fuse in line from the power jack but it's fine. Any ideas?

Look for a small silver box looking thing with a black nub on it. Mine is by were all the wires come together by the tongue. I actually have 2. They are mini breakers.

I've looked it over and over but nothing. So frustrating. It was working we changed batteries and now it's not.

Are the grounds secured properly with good contact? Is it dual or single battery? Did you hook it back up exactly as it was?

YEP, Look under the rig by the hitch and you will find a silver outlet box that will have the brakers inside. Most likley you popped one during the battery swap and had a voltage spike. With a test light you should show 12v on both sides of the lugs on the breaker.

My husband did the hook ups so I'm assuming he did it right, he's good with that stuff. He's not home now. Single battery

There's a small flat box on the tongue 2 wires coming out of it. The other end there's a very small cable attached to it?

Check the two 30A-40A fuses in the panel. They are orange or brown. If there was a reverse polarity when the new battery was hooked up, it would blow one of those fuses. The 12V system in the RV is not related at all to the GFI's they are for 110VAC ( house voltage).

that is NOT the box that you are looking for. That is your trailer brake away pin. You will need to look UNDER the trailer neer the tounge. That is most likley where you will find the power distibution box. Most are silver metal box.

Well we have searched the whole underside with no luck my husband got under the trailer and looked everywhere the other day. We've called a few Rv stores and no suggestions have helped. I wish we could find the in line fuse, probably in front of our noses lol.

There is a grey box under the front on the frame but all that's in it is the wires joined together with mar connectors.
