Unhappy No lights from Battery power

I have a 2010 Grey Wolf 29 BHKS. I have had no problems all summer. Today we came home and parked it beside our house to find none of the inside power works while on battery. All works fine on Shore power. Also, my slide works on battery. Nothing else does. Is there maybe a problem with the converter? Where do I find it. Is there a reset button. I checked all of the breakers and fuses found in the panel in the bunkhouse and no issues here.

Check outside the tt for a fuse or reset coming off of the battery.

Mine has auto resets, so if one goes out I have to replace it.

Go to your battery and follow the plus wire as it travels back down the hitch and
frame rail. You'll most likely find a fuse or circuit breaker underneath
the trailer near the front. Apparently the slide is connected in front
of this circuit breaker/fuse so it's still working.
This is fairly common.

Good Luck!

From your photo I assume you have a 5th wheel.

You problem is most likely the same as mine was. Under your pin box is a red rubber covered current limiter. Remove the corroded terminals and treat them with a nice sanding with wet and dry sandpaper. reconnect the wires. Problem should go away.

IF you have a travel trailer, there is a junction block under the front frame area where the battery power wires go to from the battery. This is actually a resettable switch and gets corroded pretty easily. SOME have a small reset button that can be pushed, and some are auto-resetting. Check that little junction block, I'll bet that is the problem! Randy
