Default Battery Failure

Hi, I'm out boondocking while working this weekend. I left 189FDS this AM, all fine. I went back for lunch and NO battery power. Zero, main fuse was ok. I of course have slide out. After work I plan on plugging into car and seeing if I can get slide in. Plan B is someone will come with generator. I have solar panel, 50 watt, any ideas what happened, pretty expensive tent on wheels!

Default FF189 fizzle

Just after I bought my FF-189 I went on a trip and almost the same thing happened-a mysterious battery drain. I found that my Chevy p/u (I notice you have a Suburban-very similar) came from the factory with a dummy fuse in the trailer charging circuit. This on a vehicle with the towing package! Why thay do this I cannot understand. Might be worth a check.
