Another dumb newbie question

Picking up our new 2104S on Saturday. I saw somewhere that when the rv is plugged into the tv the charging system of the truck will charge the battery on the rv.True? Will it full charge the battery?

yes, as long as your tv has the charge wire hooked up and or the fuse in place .
Since you dont say what you have for a tv its hard to say.

If your Ford is anything like mine when you picked up the vehicle there was a bag with a relay in it. This relay needs to be plugged into the fuse box to enable the charge circuit on the wiring harness.

with the key on open your 7 way socket lid and probe the prong at 1 o-clock that will be your power lead.
if no power you may need to add the fuse OR relay to the fuse panel.

GM has this wire but they do not hook it up, mine was laying behine the fuse box under the hood. I had to add the fuse then connected it to the fuse block.

By the way....there are no dumb questions here....if you have questions and you don't ask them then that is dumb....if each one of us knew it all then there would be no reason for this forum, so ask away

So...where does it go in the fuse box? Is it marked as charge circuit or something similar?
