I went out to start getting The TT ready for spring and none of the lights would turn on and the slide and awning don't work. That's plugged in to shore power. I plugged in to my truck and everything works fine. Any ideas what to look for? I am at a loss.

Check the voltage level of the converter and battery separately with the rv plugged in and unplugged.

x2, sounds like the 12v side of things is not working. Does your 120v stuff work?

Sounds like the RV battery is weak/dead, if plugging into truck, using truck battery power gets things working. Need to test as Scott suggests.

If the 12v converter/charger died, the main fuses between it and the battery blew or its breaker tripped, the batteries ran down.

Do you have a hand-held meter to measure voltage?

There is a small resetable fuse screwed to the a frame on the pos side near the battery. May nee a new one . It will have 2 bolts that the wires are attached.

Bobbo is correct. You loss power from the power converter. That's where you start.
