Customer Question

Hi there! We have a brand new jayco 19bb and we are dry camping and our trailer will not run any electricity off of its battery
JA: Have you tested the battery with a voltmeter? And can you see if it's leaking or not?
Customer: It's not leaking and it has a full charge
JA: What is the model/year of your RV?
Customer: 2016 jayco feather 7 19bb
JA: Are you hoping to fix this yourself? What have you tried so far?
Customer: I see in the owner manual that there might be a switch if our model is so equipped to swap from plug in to battery but I cannot seem to located the switch. It says that it could be in an external compartment and the only thing I can find are two wires connected to absolutely nothing. I would love to fix it myself since its late and I have little ones and a wife :)
JA: Anything else you think the mechanic should know?
Customer: Not that I can think of - this is only our second time out in the trailer and our first time with no hook ups - it's literally 2 weeks old

Welcome, I'm Chris (aka Moose) I prefer to work when others don't, I am here around lunch and after dinner till after midnight.

Odds are you do not have the switch you read about in the owners manual. This is most likely going to be a fuse blown or poor connections to the battery or chassis. Have you checked the fuses in the panel? Follow the harness from the battery to the camper, there is often a inline fuse there that could of failed.
