Will TV Battery power camper components

Question: If I completely remove my camper battery , will the truck battery power things such as electric jacks, slides, etc? My thought is that I will remove the camper battery before I take the camper to storage.. I will still need power at the facility in order to disconnect and level camper.

I know this isn't what you asked, but if you remove the battery BEFORE you tow you will have no breakway brakes if the camper separates from the TV.

For you other questions I would say yes. I have used the TV to power the electric jacks and tongue jack. I've never tried the slide, but I don't see why it wouldn't work.

Why not leave it in and take it out when you get there?

no problem
I was just trying to figure out if there was a reason ?!
that being said My unit states that the battery must be hooked up to run slide outs . but nothing else.

I would be concerned about this.
the length from your tv battery to your rear most jacks is alot!
and most likely your tv battery wire is no more than 12 or hopfully 10 ga.
i wouldnt want to run that much current that far .
just my opinion .
