No, it takes a minimum of 6 volts to turn on the "L" light. With a high resistance "open" between the battery and the power center you would get zero volts (or extremely low volts) from the 12 volt battery.

Thanks everyone I am now back in business . spoke with the dealer which pointed me in the right direction I asked the service tech for the grey wolf line about the Limiter he started laughing said I get this all the time and do not understand where people got this from . But same thing just behind the a frame underneath the trailer is a 2 rectange breakers on the bottom end there is a tiny black button that resets the breaker. I had one that was tripped. he informed me if this occurs again there is a electrical problem causing it. but is common to be tripped on new units when they install the battery for the first time it will trip it. and if they do not reset it then you take the problem home. said is also common on that first new delivery trip home will trip it. but onced reset it should not occur in a normal situation.

Could this switch be found on the grey wolf 29BHS also because we are having battery issues. We keep the battery at our house on a battery minder which only charges until full and then switches to maintenance but when we hook it up to the TT it last about 6 hrs and then it dies. Our dealer wants us to transport it 45 miles to check it out and with gas prices on the rise quickly we really don't want to have to do this. Please help if you can. Thanks

Battery dies when we are travelling to our destination. Once we are plugged in and not using it that is when it drains.
