2006 Cardinal 5h wheel 12 volt issue

Trailer battery is fully charged, but landing gear wonít move, slides wonít operate, 12 V lights in trailer wonít work.
When I plug into tow vehicle, landing gear works, no slides, no inside 12V lights.
When I also plug into 110, everything works fine.
HELP.....

Battery disconnect off, or main fuse blown.

Could also be the 12v resettable breaker.
Not sure where it would be located on a 5th wheel.

Battery disconnect is a fairly large switch either on or close to the batteries.

My battery disconnect was located in the basement curb side above the converter. Main fuse? You need to follow the battery + from the battery to it. Its likely a 50A resettable breaker

For my 5er, not cardinal, the resetable 12v breakers are in the battery compartment along the roof of the said compartment. They are like 1/2" by 1" and have a TINY black button on them, does not even look like it should be pushed. But it can be... In case the disconnect is a no go.

HELP.....
I have an 06 Cardinal.... Battery disconnect switch on mine is a big red key attached to a switch just inside the entry door. .... I also blew an in line battery fuse. It is located on the hot side wires coming off the battery. Easy to remove the fuse but is a bear at times to get it to "click" in so it stays closed. I've blown that fuse several times. It usually blows because I try and use the landing gear for too long a period of time and the fuse gets too hot. Now I put the legs down to ground, give it a break while I unload something else for a while then finish raising the rig. No problems since I started doing this... Hood luck...

I have an '06 Cardinal also, battery switch located on the rear wall inside the outside storage.
