We are having problems with our 2009 Sprinter conversion

Customer Question

We are having problems with our 2009 Sprinter conversion Four Winds Motor Home. We had a tow package installed several years ago and there were no problems towing our car behind the motor home until now. When we connected the cable from the car to the motor home our lights on our tow vehicle did not work. My husband discover some of the wires in the plug were disconnected. There is no power coming from the plug in the motor home. My husband has been trouble shooting this problem for weeks with no luck. He seems to think that there might be a fuse involved in this problem. He has talked to Four Winds and they have not been much help. They have passed the problem to sprinter. PLEASE HELP Going crazy...Husband says we need a diagram of the fuses. Thanks

is the trailer a LED lighted trailer?

Expert:  Lou P. replied 1 year ago.

under the drivers seat on the left side are the fuses, now the fuses for the trailer recognition module are in a weird order., ill try and simplify this .

We are towing from our motor home a CR-V Honda - we are not towing a trailer

fuse 4 , 14, 15, and 30, ok that makes sense, i can explain further

Expert:  Lou P. replied 1 year ago.

the trailer socket is connected to a control module, if the control module does not sense the proper resistance it will not allow power to the socket, so thats why he cannot get power from the socket, you will have to but a adapter from uhaul that adds resistance to the socket to allow the lights to function, even then i cannot guarantee 100% that this will work. but those are the fuses and this is the only options. sorry for the delay. hope this information helps. Please rate OK/GOOD/EXCELLENT SERVICE if i have been helpful and let me know if i can be of anymore

Can you tell us where we might find these fuses?
Expert:  Lou P. replied 1 year ago.

Yes you must have missed my reply. The fuses are under the drivers seat. It's in the side that faces the door. There's a panel that comes off to reveal the fuse block. My apologies if I was not clear.
