Believe me, its the fused line. The low amp fuse is still powering the CO2 detector and radio stand-by in his TT. I have this installed in my Mustang. I do not have the fused line installed as the alarm will drain the battery over time. Mine is installed on the negative terminal. I just turn the knob counter-clockwise to disconnect.

Is the fuse always missing, or did you take it out?

As long as the fuse is out, that bypass wire should be isolated from the battery negative terminal also.

To me it looks like the fuse is in and the cover has been popped. And wmtire is right, pulling the fuse would be the same as removing the wire.

There was still power with fuse out so next time I get the trailer out of storage I am going to start from scratch and try to clean up the previous owner's modifications.

When I look at your picture, I can see two others wires connected on the other side of battery post which would not be disconnected by battery disconnect. So that is why you still have power to trailer......probably battery ground.....battery disconnect can be on either post, does not make a difference if wired correctly.
