As mentioned, look for a fuse or relay that needs to be installed in the truck. I would believe 99% (if not 100%) of the tow vehicles have a fuse to protect from a short. Our '10 Chevy didn't have the fuse installed or the wire on the terminal stud. I guess the manufactures do this since they don't know if the trucks will be used as "real" trucks or as grocery getters. Less chance of a short that way, but it is a quick and easy job to "finish".
How long did you leave the truck hooked up before giving up? Is it possible the battery was dead enough it was going to take longer to charge? The jack should have worked when plugged in as mentioned, but just a thought.
Is your trailer plugged in while stored? If not, did you disconnect the battery? The propane detector will kill the battery in just a few days or so if left connected. That is why I mounted a Blue Sea disconnect switch for my battery in the battery box. One 1/4 turn, and all power draw is eliminated. Check my signature link for pics.
