Look for a fuse or "resettable fuse" (see picture) within a couple of feet of the battery in the positive cable.

You may also have a 30 amp flat fuse between the battery and the converter that is blown. Start with the hot wire from the battery and trace it back toward the trailer. Sometimes there is a fuse within in the first foot or so.

Returning from a long trip yesterday, I lost all 12 volt. Fortunately I have seen several threads on this forum about the resettable fuse and knew where to look. The frustrating thing was it kept tripping. After resetting it several times, I opened the battery box only to find that the dealer never tightened the battery connections. They must have only figure tighten them as we have had the trailer since March with no problems.

Once I tightened up the connections, no more problems! Just a suggestion to check the batter connections if you are tripping the fuse.

marcus, should be between the battery and the front of the trailer box, along the A-frame. usually tucked into the C-channel.
