I pinched my cable between the WDH bars and trailer while 90deg parking (forgot to pull the bars before backing into storage). I blew a fuse on the TV as well and it took me a bit to realize it was not the TT but rather the TV. I plugged my 4pin trailer light in to test the TV.

I have a question for you. I went to the RV store and bought a replacement cable but they had no idea what I was talking about when I asked for the grey strain relief that goes in the junction box. I had to split mine to get it out. I see on in the photo you posted that I have the exact wiring/box/strain relief as you and wonder how you procured a replacement strain relief.

I didn't have to mess with that piece because it was on the cables coming from the tt into the Junction box. The 7 pin cable is the lower one on my pic with just the clamp to secure it in place.
I would assume any big box would have that part though in the electrical section by all of the junction boxes.

Thanks for that info. Found it hidden on the frame but behind the tongue about a foot or so behind the forward wall of the trailer. Good info too have because if it had been necessary to access it last week I wouldn't have a clue what or where it is.

At some point during every day you suddenly realize nothing else productive is going to happen the rest of that day. For me, it usually occurs around 9 am.
