Default Battery Power

I do not have power from the battery. The battery is charged, the fuse next to the battery is ok. There is no power at the panel with just the battery. Everything is ok when hooked up to the vehicle or 120 power. I can not determine what the issue is.

Not sure what model trailer you have, but first thing I would check is the battery disconnect switch. Usually on a panel with the light switch, water pump, awning, etc. It must be pulled out.

On my 2008 Fun Finder, the battery cut off is in the front pass through storage compartment. It is easy to accidently push it in with sliding boxes or gear.

One of the first mods I made to my old 210WBS was to take a 1.5" piece of aluminum and bend it in a "U" with ears on each top section of the "U". Drilled holes in the ears and put some short (1/2") screws through the ears into the black plastic box to shield the disconnect switch. Very poor design...far too easy to accidentally disconnect the battery

Have a friend that has his disconnect inside (I think they thought it was an improvement), but, it is right at the door and floor level...same thing, far too easy to hit it with your shoe and not realize you've disconnected...

I guess almost anywhere they put it, there is a good chance at an unintentional disconnect. They should change to a "turn the key" style disconnect or put a shield around it to begin with.

My 2 cents, your mileage may vary...
