USB Port in bedroom

I'm a little surprised, when I search this forum and the owners manual for "USB" no results are found? I even mentioned the USB port in another post and it didn't pop up in the search?

Anyway, is there a trick to getting the USB port to work? Is it like the USB port on my battery booster that there is a switch to turn it on so it isn't constantly using power?

I searched for USB ports and got a page of them.

My USB ports are always hot. My understanding is that they only "draw" is when they are being used, and then only milli-amps, thus their advantage.

Others have reported rhat theirs aren't functioning properly, in other threads. I'm thinking that Jayco may have received a bad bath from a supplier. I tested all of mine with an iPad and charging cord....

Exactly. Mine are always on and I've not had to do anything to enable them.

We used the two that are in the main bedroom this week to charge our devices and they worked just fine.

This is not intended to be a belittling question but do you have your battery connected? Do your lights work? No offense intended.

No offense taken I used to work in tech support and lost count of how many times power cycling fixed an issue.

Yes, the batteries are connected, all lights, awning, tongue jack, etc. work. I have not tested the USB ports while plugged into shore power, but from what I'm hearing here they should run off just the battery.

I have also not tested the 12V socket right beside them. Packing up for the weekend tonight I will run some more tests.

Good to know it is not switched, now I can move on to further troubleshooting knowing I'm not wasting my time.

In my trailer, the USB port is on the same fuse as all the bedroom lights. Its a DC circuit that runs through the converter. I have do nothing to turn it on other than have power supplied to the trailer either by battery or shore cable.

Thinking this could be like the classic "my LED lights don't work" problem. LEDs are polarity sensitive. Is it possible that the factory reversed the leads, or failed to hook them up at all, at the factory? Hard to check USB port with a multi-meter, but can probably pull out the plug and check the leads on the back. Is there 12V power coming into the plug, and is its polarity correct?
