Electrical problem with electric tongue jack
Purchased just a month ago and have a question on the electric tongue jack before I take it back next week (140 miles from where I bought it). It's a new 22Fb with the 3500# electric jack. It was only going up and down when attached with the power cord all trailer lights when hauling, etc. I look to see where the wires are attached jack, and brake emergency gizmo and they are not attached to the battery, but just wrapped around the angle iron support for the two gas tanks?? The black wire from the jack has been cut and an inline fuse (10ga green wire attached to them in a three wire connector (okay, I assume so). There is then an orange/black wire from the emergency break gizmo. So I have this green wire, and the orange wire spliced together in a terminal that should go on to the positive side of the battery. Sounds good to me and looked at the papers that came with both devices. Sooooo, when I hook them up to the battery, (by the way a 30 ATC fuse in holder), touch the switch to raise the jack (unattached from the vehicle), using the TT battery, Psssst, the fuse blows. I can't figure it out, the service mgr 140 miles away can't either and tells me to bring in the TT (280 + miles round trip). Yes it's under warranty of course, just wondering if any electrical magicians on here that could tell me what could be the trouble--Service Mgr thinks it might have been wired wrong in the factory (China????). By the way, seems funny to me that it was wrapped around the angle instead of attached to the battery, h'mmmm, did the person that wired the brake gizmo know of the problem?? Any help would be appreciated, thanks in advance!
