Your camper battery is bad. But if you have or can borrow jumper cables jump to your Tow Vehicle. The heavy cables will give you the amount of power needed. 12 gauge wire from the plug at back of truck restricts amp output.

I'm not sure where you are trying to settle in but I would suggest you jump into your TV and drive to a store and buy a battery or pull the battery from your TV and put it temporarily into your RV...

Ok so if converter is bad which I think it is, if i hook a battery up from my car temporarily willcit bypass the converter? I don't think so cause when i had truck hooked up the jacks acted the same.. Judy planning ahead in case my jacks don't work when i leave. I see a manual port in the pump but not sire how sure to use it or even if its for the jacks

restate you need batteries. Don't wait until you settle in. You need batteries to make everything work. Most of you 12 volt power things on your RV work strictly off battery. Some may work when plugged into your TV, but, they may blow your 12 Volt fuse. Get a good battery(s) and I think your problems will go away.

You don't need to turn your converter on. Disconnect from shore power and then converter will not come on. Then put in TV battery and the 12v will still work without the converter on... I understand the short of $$.

Look...you need to break out a $100 bill and buy ANY 12V deep cycle battery. You're gonna need one immediately and there is NO better or cheaper solution that won't end up costing your more money. Your existing battery is TOAST. Trying to charge it can only turn other things to toast. Autozone, and AAparts or Napa will all carry deep cycle batteries. A Group27 wll be $90-110 bucks typically. Good luck!
