HELP

We purchased a 2014 Windjammer a month ago. We tool it out one time. We went to pick it up tonight and no electrical is working. What do we need to do??

Are you plugged in or trying to run on battery? My first thought is dead battery. Second thought is battery hooked up backward. Third thought, check the fuses.

We wanted to start the fridge tonight so in the am while we are driving it would be cold at our destination so right now we would be running on battery. When we used the trailer 3 weeks ago, everything was working great. Were we supposed to turn something off, like the propane or the batteries?
thanks

If you left the battery hooked up then you likely drained it. If you have a trickle charger, charge it tonight. If not you can charge it off the tow vehicle if it can be revived (usually can). Disconnecting the battery prevents parasitic draining from things like the stereo faceplate, microwave clock etc. Investing in a battery disconnect switch makes this easier but you can always just disconnect 1 terminal on the battery. If you disconnect it entirely, pay attention to which cable goes where as they are not the same as on a car. Also turn your propane off between uses too. Hope this helps you.

OMG this really helps. So each time we are supposed to unhook the battery unless we have a battery disconnect? So tomorrow when we hook up we just plug in the trailer like usual and our truck may be able to charge the trailer battery?

Yes. If you can, try plugging it in tonight. I would invest in a battery charger or battery minder.

If when you plug into a running tow vehicle or electric outlet (50 or 30 amp depending on what your windjammer uses.) And you still get nothing, then there is a bigger problem. Do not tow unless you have battery power for the emergency brake. Good luck and keep us updated.
