I have a battery mounted on the front of the trailer and I'm not sure why it's there. If I can't run anything off it what's the use?
I'm assuming that you bought your TT used and didn't get a PDI/Walkthrough.
Please don't take this the wrong way but you need to educate yourself on RV electrical systems. One side is 12v DC and the other side is 120v AC.
As was stated, you have to have a battery to power the breakaway switch while traveling. Also, some RVs need a battery to operate high draw 12v items, even when plugged into shore power.
Microwave, electric fireplace, a/c and outlets only operate when on shore power or generator power. Also the electric side of 2-way fridge or water heater. Most tv's are also 110v AC.
