Great feedback! I was looking for an illuminated 12v indicator on the 7-pin tester.

Lights were on, yes.

I will check ďmarker light pinĒ next week when Iím at trailer and report findings.

Thank you for the reply.

My assumptions - each set of lights is on its own switch and there is no dimmer installed.

The string of lights will all be connected together and one LED should not affect any of the others. They should be connected in parallel which means you will have one 12 volt and one ground wire running the entire distance and each light will connect to these wires.

So, the problem would seem to be a low 12 volts feeding the string of lights. Just for the heck of it, pull the fuse for these lights and reinsert it. Maybe you will get lucky and there was a poor connection. This assumes there is a separate fuse for those lights.

The first test is measure the battery voltage just so you know what you are sending. I would then go to the switch that controls the weak bank and measure the 12 volts to some ground you can find. If the power reads good at the switch, you may have a problem with the ground connection to the string. I have no idea how they connect the grounds to the light strings.

If the 12 volts at the switch is low there may be a poor connection betwen the switch and the fuse panel.

Given this is a new unit, you may want to have it checked under warranty.

Good luck!

This is for those that downloaded version 1 of my troubleshooting doc. This was the original document posted at the start of this thread. It was greatly enhanced and released as version 2. If you came into the thread and didn't go through all the posts you didn't get the revised doc.

I have attached version 2 which gives tips for everything I could come up with.

Thanks Jim. I added a note to your first post to check your post #65 for the updated file.

Prewired furrion camera

I have a 2020 Octane 222 xl that was "pre-wired" for the Furrion back up camera. So I installed the Furrion system but it didn't work. After 2 days of trouble shooting the problem and researching on line I figured it out. I pulled the whole mounting off the trailer and found no power going to the camera. The red wire from the camera was attached to an orange wire in the trailer but no power there. So to make a long story short, I gently started pulling the orange wire out of the trailer and it kept coming and coming untill it fell out. The end of the wire had a nice clean cut and apparently was never connected to anything. So I rewired it to run off of the trailer batteries with a switch inside the trailer so I can turn it on or off whenever I want. So much for pre-wiring.

I am grateful for your time and effort. I went to check on my TT in storage today. While the battery (on solar tender) is charged and would operate the jack, there was no power inside. I'll need to go back to do a thorough check. I'm hoping it's a ground or fuse.

Jim how I wished you were close by right now. We just purchased a
2004 Jayco Eagle 308FB. This is our first trip out with it n now find ourselves with no lights and no heat. Everything worked fine at home before we left. But now it seems the converter is not taking a charge and we canít even located this converter.

I could have used this earlier, just tracked down a loose wire on the battery shut off!

Jim,
you need to put together another document teaching me how to use this new fangled clamp on meter that someone here talked me into. It does AC/DC but it might as well be Chinese, lol. I can do basic stuff, and I mean basic with it, but the clamp portion totally eludes me.

For loss of 120 volts you can ignore all fuses as 120 volts is always protected by circuit breakers. If the power is good at the pedestal the power will go through the power cord and connect inside the rig. If you are set up for a generator the power cord will connect to a transfer switch which switches between shore power and generator power. That would be the place to check for power with a voltmeter.

If there is no transfer switch, the power will probably feed directly to the main breaker inside the rig. If you have 50 amp service it will connect to 2 separate breakers. Anyway, a voltmeter will tell you if it is getting inside the breaker box.

If power is present at the pedestal but not inside the rig then the power cord would be suspect. Not too common to fail, except maybe the plug-in part.

If you are uncomfortable measuring 120 volts have someone else poke around with the voltmeter. You can get shocked if you touch the wrong thing with a body part.
