FIXED

The link in #2 is excellent and I definitely learned a few things. I checked the green 30 amp fuse for continuity and reset the switch. The two 40 amp in the fuse box were also okay. Still no power to lights and fridge when unplugged. A new battery fixed the problem but I wonder why Roo’s indicator lights for battery strength said the battery was fully charged.

Thanks all.

Since a battery can only be truly tested by putting a load on it unless a hydrometer test is done the indicator lights indicate no load battery voltage. That is why the indicator lights showed a fully charged battery.... Because it was.

Was the trailer plugged into shore power when you checked the indicator lights?
If so, it won't show actual battery charge.

Trailer was plugged into 15 amp gfi receptacle sitting in driveway. I realize now the battery was likely bad from day one purchase about one year ago, I could never open or close the slide unless hooked to TV or campsite electricity.

The things you learn.....just realized from reading these forums I have a hot water heater that works off of electricity.
