Thanks Bluepill. I am sure that is the problem, I just need to find that fuse! From the 7 pin plug to the trailer, I cannot find it. Once it goes into the trailer, all of the wiring is located below the floor, between the frame, which is covered on the bottom as well. Do I need to access this area you think? See picture. Thanks again.

That cable should go into a junction box mounted in the front of the RV. That's where it's hooked to the RV wiring for lights and brakes.

It may be located behind a panel in the front storage area.

When on shore power, is there 12 volts on the TT pin that goes back to the TV (Pin 4)? The running lights and turn signals are fed separately from the house battery charge pin. I am sure that you already know this but thought I would ask. The answer is probably no and that indicates that something (fuse, breaker, etc) is open on that lead between the house DC panel and the TT cable.[IMG]http://i5.photobucket.com/albums/y20...ps702153a8.jpg[/IMG]

I agree. Mine on the Rockwood is on the frame about where your harness disappears. I agree with Bama, it has to be somewhere and you'd think it would be accessible.

If you have a battery disconnect switch somewhere make sure it is turned on. Mine is in the storage compartment.

ScottBrownstein - I never did check if I have 12V going back to the TT plug. I understand the brake, turn and running lights work on a separate system. I just took the trailer back to storage for a couple weeks, I will check that when I get it back. Should I have 12V going back to the plug when connected to shore power?


Thanks for the input.

Thanks everyone else for the input. I just took the trailer back to storage for a couple weeks. I had to get it off the roadway. When I get it back, I will double check the storage compartment again, if it is not there. I will attempt to take off the underside flooring/paneling on the frame to see if I can trace it.

Thanks again.

You mentioned "when the battery is dead or disconnected". What is the voltage on the battery? The battery may be toast.

Thanks for the input.
Yep you should if there is a path for the TV to charge the TT batteries. Works both ways and I would expect that there isn't any voltage on pin 4 to ground. Just a thought. If there is voltage then your problem is not in the TT, but I bet there isn't and it is in the TT.

You will find your junction box just above the plastic belly panel where the cord goes through it. If you cannot easily pull down the panel. you can cut it with a razor knife and make a flap to open for access. Black Gorilla Tape works excellent to seal it back up. Do NOT use duct tape it wont hold. Breaker should be in the box.
