Does your electric jack not work off your house battery? I've never had a tt so I don't know. On 5ers the jacks are powered by the trailer battery.

This particular jack doesn't have a separate wire to use off of a house battery. There is only a cord for the truck. (I'm not thrilled with the way the jack is set up to run like that, but am living with it, until it dies)

If everything else works on the trailer, suggest having the jack wired to the trailer battery. That is a less than stellar idea to have to be plugged into the truck to work the jack.

Ok, after Hubby did some checking on the net, we found it! It was fuses 9 & 21 were not plugged into the truck! We found them in a plastic Baggie in the glove box! Plugged the fuses into truck, and now the jack works! Woohoo!!

Thank all for your help!

Good deal! I've seen tons of those in trucks I've worked on and had to install a few fuses for others with trailer wire issues.
