but you need to contact your dealer or Trilogy to know for sure.

if you failed to have a battery hooked up to your old TT, while towing it, you were violating the law. your marine battery does have a purpose, even if you have hookups.
the battery powers the TT's emergency brake system, should it detach from the tow vehicle and it is the law to have the battery, if the trailer is equipped with electric brakes.

not sure how you got away with it for 12 years.
if the CHP had pulled you over, you would have been cited for that. and they may have had you leave the trailer until you put a battery back in.

also, it's better to start your own thread, instead of piggybacking on someone else's thread, if it is a different issue than yours.
the OP is having issues with his converter and breakers.
Sorry about the thread confusion-new at this as well...as for the electric breaks on the TT, the tongue has a small battery for that purpose, so I think we were OK...thanks for the help on the original issue!

no problem. it takes some time to get how forums work.

what kind of TT did you have, that you had a small battery on the tongue and another marine battery somewhere else? and where did the marine battery go?
most TT's have one or two batteries on the tongue, that power the 12v things on the trailer AND the emergency trailer brakes.

by the way, lived in Ventura County for 17 years. even though we now live in Napa, we still miss VC a lot.
know of all the places you talked about, especially the Rincon. my favorite surf spot.

Coleman Tacoma bought new 12 years back...still have it, and will still pull it to desert hot springs or the Rincon...also Ventura beach RV, which is super noisy next to the 101, but nice park with great pool and spa and walking distance to Main street...

We are in Frazier Park area, which is central to pismo/Ventura and palm springs the other way...beach is 90 minutes, desert a bit longer...love napa...you make that beverage up there we happen to like ALOT!
