F 150's come with that fuse in the glove box not plugged into your fuse panel check you owners manual for the fuse number I bet it won't be in plugged in and is probably sitting in your glove box somewhere

Charging from my truck NEED HELP PLEASE

x2 on the fuse that you may need to install. I had to do this on my '13 F150. Once installed I had plenty of power to the TT from the TV to run the jacks, lights, water pump, etc. Keep in mind the TV has to be running to supply power (at least it does in my case).

Fixed X2!!! Lol

It really doesn't matter what brand it is, they all can be great, or be a pain in the ..... Lol

Gidor,

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.

Good luck!!!

My 2013 F150 had this same issue. It was an easy fix. Check your vehicle owner's manual for the fuse location for the 7 pin connection. It should be in the main fuse box. My fuse relay was not installed, it was in a small bag in the glovebox. If its missing and not in the truck it will cost about $20 at a Ford parts counter. I never did bother to find out why they don't come pre-installed but some dealers will do it during there pre-sale prep while others simply don't bother.

The 2015 F150 relay and fuse should already be installed (prior years were not).... read the following ref this issue for 2015 and 2016 F150...

The following I found on another forum:

"Hooked my utility trailer up today, here's what I learned. Connect the trailer, then switch the ignition to accessory mode you will see a message that the trailer is connected. Name the trailer also enter the details about the trailer. If equipped, your blind spot and cross traffic alert will be disabled automatically.
when you start the truck it will power up the 12v terminal and charge the auxiliary battery. (Trailer battery voltage went from 12.4 to 13.6)
if you slide the brake controller you will see the gain setting and bar in the info panel. If you get a "Trailer disconnected" message the controller is not operating the trailer brakes. (Mine had a broken wire in the trailer harness).
Red lights come on in the info center to indicate running lights are working when you turn them on. Green marks indicate the other lights are functioning correctly.
In general the system works beautifully."

"
I see someone already beat me to it, but I can confirm the 7 pin plug back to the system center is an intelligent plug. It has to see a "load" before it will start the charging process.

If you see the "trailer connected" message on your display, charging will start.

I was not able to get a trailer connected message the first time, until I went into the display and gave the trailer a name, selected the brake type, then set it as the default trailer. Once I did that, trailer connected came on. Charge line went active. After that one setup, it gets it every time."
