Since you said it killed the TV battery in 10 min YOU HAVE A SHORT in the wiring.. There is no other explanation (I know of ) that would do that..
Fridge issue.. How many times in a row have you reset the fridge to run on propane.. it takes several attempts to clear the line leading to the fridge of air..

There's a lot distance between my propane tanks & fridge, so I find that if I bleed the air out of the line by lighting the stove top (beside the fridge), then the fridge will start up on gas with no problem.

Otherwise, it's a bit of a race between the air bleeding out of the lines and the number of times that the fridge will try to light itself.

Perhaps someone with your particular model will chime in. If you have a TT that does not have a fuse/breaker in the hot wire from the battery it will be the only one manufactured in the last 10-15 years without one.

Additionally, I am assuming you actually have the house feed wire connected to the battery.

Here's another thread where folks eventually found the fuse in question. Perhaps you could PM one of them for a clue.

Battery was not left connected over winter and was disconnected when not using. Also during winter storage the battery was removed and connected to a maintenance charger.

I understand 12v power and its limitations very well, have been a mechanic for over 20 years.

I'm sure you know that if you have a bad battery you can get it replaced by anybody who sells that particular brand. You don't have to take it back to the RV dealership. The fact that the dealership says they won't replace it again doesn't mean the battery manufacturer won't.

Another thing that can kill a battery real quick is if the plunger gets pulled from your break away switch.

With all of the issues I a having I have decided to get out of this unit in the next few months or spring. All boils down to the dealer I went through. The choice of 100 for a service call or drive it 60 miles to the dealer (losing time at work since they cannot service days besides monday) makes the warranty pointless

Jayco will authorize other Non-Dealer RV repair facilities to perform warranty work if your dealer is being challenging.

If you do chose to get out of this RV, I would caution you to take pause before getting back in to a RV. All mfg have issues.

Will be trading the unit in towards another that has much better service dept. Based on reviews from people I know and spoke with at campground and the campground and my home both fall into Thier free service call radius.
