Thanks all
You will find with FORD's they do not normally install the fuse and relay that carry the charge fromTV to trailer battery, but they are both placed in a bag in the glove box. Surprising yes, why no clue but ford does not install these.

And folks would have to actually read the instructions that come with the receptacles which we did long before the internet. Had charge wire on our first tow vehicle, a 1972 Cadillac Eldorado.

Yeah I installed a fuse and relay from the bag but I must have put the relay in the wrong place. No way I'll figure out where so I will buy another fuse.

Thanks for the update. Glad to hear you're all fixed up. This topic can be moved to the solved category.

I understand that you figured out your problem, but in your TV owner's manual there will be a section that shows what fuse size/relay size and the location of each in the Fuse Box. . Some vehicles not only have a Fuse Box, but also a Power Distribution Box in addition. Both schematics of said Fuse Boxes should be in your owner's manual.

Glad you got it figured out.
