Shamrock 19 12 Volt electrical reset switch

Hi I recently had the alternator on my tow vehicle go bad and as a result somehow it sent some surges through the Shamrock 19 trailer and it tripped a reset switch. I had no 12 volt power on the trailer. I took it to a trailer repair place and had to pay $52.00 to have them reset the switch. I watched the guy roll under the trailer for 15 seconds and reset the switch. I have looked under the trailer for the switch and cannot find it. Can anyone tell me where the switch is just in case this happens again.

I'm not sure who makes the Shamrock 19, but my Flagstaff V-lite had the same thing happen, the only thing that worked was the power tongue jack, when NOTHING ELSE would. The culprit was a junction block/switch block just behind the tongue on the inside of the frame. If you follow the battery wires, you'll see it. Mine had rust/corrosion on the nuts/terminal connectors that went through this reset -It's actually called a circuit breaker, and SOME.....mine did, have a small reset button on them. The dealer replaced mine, and I'm good now. Randy

A resettable breaker looks like this.

Note the small black reset button no the left.

It should be located just past the first lateral beam on the "A" frame.

Where is the button? I don't see it in the pic. Can you point it out to me. I am having the same problem.

Here is a photo without wires.

You should remove your wires (careful not to short them) and clean any corrosion off the terminals and threads before you reassemble them.

Tiny button on the side should reset the thing.
