Check your manual and look for trailer 12V aux power. If you had power before the incident, there will be a fuse ( possible blown) If you are not sure, there could be a plug where the fuse needs to go. Also note that trailer lights are on separate fuses from the TV if you ever have running light issues.

Not sure what vehicle you have since its not in your profile, but here is some info from ETrailer.com regarding brake control and trailer power for a 2009 chevy pu. The important info is at the 2:25 mark.

I didn't see an answer if you have 12 volts at the 7 pin receptacle on your bumper. If you have 12 v there the problem is in the trailer; no 12v, the 40 amp fuse in the black box next to your truck battery is probably blown

Located under hood above LF wheel.
Black Fuse/Relay box.
Dummy plug is located towards front of EPC. Reference owners manual for exact location.

Sorry for such a late response...busy start to the week! I just pulled the fuse in my tv and sure enough it's blown. I will replace tonight and see if that's what did it.
My guess is when the cable got caught it blew the fuse in my truck.

If so press the little black button.
Don't remember seeing one of these. Where is it?
