Need electrical input....

Am ready for a trip tomorrow morning and met a HURDLE. Please read what I have reviewed and give any experience guidance you can to assist me in correcting the situation today. Your input is VERY MUCH APPRECIATED;

I have slide in/out power AND running lights when hooked up to the tow vehicle power.

I do NOT have any lights OR refer in the RV.

I reflipped all the interior main electric panel. ( no luck)

I pulled the battery and replaced it with an alternative fully charged battery ( Silverback only has 1 battery) no difference.

Reviewing manual next. It was in the rv and needed to get this post so I can expedite the issue and resolve today if possible.

The exterior step/porch light does not work...obviously it is on the main source feeding the interior.

Thanks.

Silverbackmel

X2 if equipped with such. You may also have a resettable cb/fuse on your frame rail. Hold on and I will get you a pic and edit this post

EDIT: Trace your wiring back from the battery usually to just underneath the trailer on the frame rail. You will be looking for something similar to this. There is usually a little black part on the side of the cb/fuse that you push in to reset it.



You can see this "button" you push on the top of this one below, but it can be on the side of some.

I'm glad everything is working, if I'm not mistaken you get your running lights from the truck.

Running lights

Spock; that is correct. I figured that part after seeing external, running lights working.
Info on battery disconnect saved me a ton of time👍.
I JUST pulled the rv from it's mountain resting space yesterday. It was on spot; under 50 amp service.
I installed the Furrion high distance observation system yesterday. It works off truck running lights and worked flawlessly the 65 miles home!
Silverback is pre wired. Took 30 minutes. ( my Christmas gift) .
Heading to south Florida tomorrow for 5 weeks!! Waaaaa Hoooo !!🎉

Fantastic feeling isn't it, when it goes right. Looking forward to that feeling in about eight and one half months from now!

I was working with batteries today and I turned off the battery disconnect, everything worked once I turned it back on. That was a little dumb, I think I would forget my head if wasn't attached. We are going to Orlando in a few weeks
