New to us W&P 25UL..breaker question

My wife and I recently purchased an 2010 W&P 25UL.



I made a mistake and left a light on inside the other day and ran the battery down. I plugged into shore power for about a day to recharge the battery. Battery is now charged but for some reason I am not getting 12VDC from the battery to the trailer. Everything works fine when plugged into shore power or when my truck is plugged into the trailer. I checked all the fuses in the fuse panel/converter panel and they are fine. I found some type of auto resetting 30Amp circuit breaker on the side of the frame next to the battery and I am only getting 4VDC on the trailer side of the breaker (12VDC on the battery side). I believe this breaker must be bad, but am not sure if I am doing something wrong as this is the first RV we have had.

This is the breaker I am talking about:
Amazon.com: Bussmann BP/CBC-30HB Type I 30 Amp Circuit Breaker Two 10-32 Threaded Studs: Automotive

I dont believe there is anything loading the circuit because all is fine when plugged into the truck or to shore power.

Any ideas?

See if there is a resetting button on the side, otherwise by-pass it and replace as soon as possible.

Is that small black plastic tab a reset? I thought that just kept the breaker in the "saddle" mount.

I replaced the breaker this morning and all is well now. I also replaced the ground from the battery. I guess I may have stressed the breaker when I ran the battery down and recharged it?!?!

Thanks for all the help.
