Have you checked the resettable circuit breaker?

Under the a frame hitch.


Follow your positive wire from your battery and it should eventually come to a circuit breaker that should be resettable.

One other quick thing.

Are you sure your battery is not dead ?
Are you SURE your tv charge line is "hot"?

In most cases your vehicles towing "hot" charging wire is not active unless you....
1) inserted a fuse and or relay in the fuse panel to make it "hot"

My trailer has a kill switch. It's this silver looking knob. When it's pushed in, it kills All the the power, even from the battery.

Mine is right next to the fuse box under the Fridge

If your power tongue jack works, but nothing else when plugged into the truck, then chances are that re-settable breaker mentioned that is close to the tongue is the culprit. Mine did the same thing, but it had a corroded connection at this breaker area. The dealer changed mine out, and cleaned up the rusty connectors and nuts. Also, if your slide outs ever cease to have power, under the tongue again in a little plastic green holder is a 30 amp automotive style fuse for each electric slide out. I had one of those blow, as well. Randy

Check if your inverter is alive.

it's a CONverter, not an inverter.
all RV's have converters, but few have inverters.

Can't be same symptoms.
An inverter takes 12 v and makes it 110v
A converter takes 110v and makes it 12v.
