Look under the tongue or front of the unit. There should be a self resetting breaker under there. You could have tripped it and it won't reset.

My battery was drained dead, used a portable battery charger to give it some juice and hooked up to truck so we could use the power jack.

Drove for half hour on it and again left the truck plugged in to use the jack.

Went back a day later to take my battery out and recharge it, but before I did this, I plugged the TT into the truck, but I got no power for inside lights etc (12 volts).

Does the 12 volt power from the TV not work when the battery is completely dead, or is it a problem with a breaker/fuse?

Look under the tongue (or directly under the pinbox for 5th wheel) for something that loots like the photo. On its side should be a little reset button.

Another thought.

A battery too dead, may not take a charge from the alternator. This protects the alternator (and the power center) from overload.

You may need to remove the battery from the TT and take it to a battery test station (Auto-Zone or Pep Boys) and have it tested to see if it will even take a charge.

It is at my folks place right now on a charger. I will check on it later today after work, I will also check for that reset button when at the TT.

I am also wondering if maybe the 7 pin ending got damaged in any way and is not connecting properly.

While this is possible for sure, I tend to discount it due to the other issues with the camper. Power at the pin is easy to check with a test light or meter.

My money is on that fuse Herk and Ky Dan are talking about. Follow your battery terminal wire to where it connects under the tongue area, and the thing that it connects to looks like what Herk has pictured above. My fuse block was corroded 3 months old from new, and the dealer replaced mine with an auto-resetting type of fuse block. I had your same symptoms with my power. 120v only stuff worked fine, and the tongue jack worked fine-(before that fuse), but no other 12v powered stuff would operate. That little block fixed it.

I while ago I posted that I had reversed the poles on my battery and after replacing the blown forty amp fuses I still was not getting any 12 volt power, although everything was working fine with the 120. Turns out the problem was the fuse under the tongue. Thank you very much for sharing your knowledge. Much appreciated.
