USB charging port for phones and tablets

Just purchased a new 2016 Jayco TT. The USB ports don't seem to be working. I checked the fuse, it's good. The 12v outlet connected to the same USB outlet works. Anyone have any idea of what it could be?

They will only work when you are plugged in to 120 volt power.........

Check the circuit breakers in the panel. Make sure they are all on..

Everything is on. The outlet has two USB ports and a 12v cigarette type outlet. The 12v has power so you would think the ports would also. Maybe they wired them incorrectly?

I doubt that the 12v part is being supplied by the 120v input. Turn off all breakers and disconnect your battery, remove the outlet from the wall and see if the wires are connected in the electrical box behind it. Or since this is a new trailer take it back to the dealer.

I removed the faceplate and checked out the wiring. They have the usb wired into the main wires leading to the 12v outlet then electric taped together. I was hoping I could figure this out, dealership is a hour away.. Thanks for the info us7na

Why would the 12v outlet and USB plug (both DC power) only work when the trailer is plugged into an AC power source? That doesn't make sense. You would think that they would be supplied by the 12v system....

Check for 12vdc on the backs of the USB ports; if power to them is present, then they have an internal problem. They use a few components to get 5vdc for USB.

I am having the same issue with my 2016 27BHS. We used it for the first time and the ports worked for about 5-10 minutes then stopped. All the wires, fuses, etc seem ok. I have an appointment to get the dealer to look at it, I think the ports are bad. Maybe there is a quality issue with the ports...
