battery “Reset” location.

I charged my battery, used the electric hitch, got to camp and no battery power.
Battery is fine. Followed wires under camper, but they disappear into undercover. It is not in the front storage, or I can’t find it.
Any ideas?!

Are you sure your battery held the charge? It may have gone bad. Check with a voltmeter, should be over 12 volts.


Also, my electric hitch has it's own fuse and wire direct to the battery, if yours does the fuse should be right on that line.


Will the hitch go up and down when connected to your car or truck? If it won't then it could be the problem. Do you have power inside for lights, etc. does the power panel inside show anything. Cold be loose connection to battery, bunch of stuff.


For best long term help post your make, model and year and what you tow with.

Sorry, X19H Jay Feather towing with 2015 Frontier.
Everything works on the generator, batt is charged, but I am told there is a reset.
I am sure it is simple, but can’t find reset shut off

Mine is on a wire going from the battery to the junction box near the front edge of the trailer. It is a tiny box with a reset-able breaker. About 1 inch square. But I installed my hitch with a seperate wire with fuse direct to the battery.

Another problem that can occur is a lack of ground to the tongue by the hitch bolts.

Also the trailer ground from the junction box to the frame can go bad.



There is a junction box with fuses and AC breakers. Usually behind a plastic panel with a vent for the cooling fan of the converter that changes AC to 12 volt and charges the battery. Mine just pops out with a fingernail.

Look in your owners manual for more.

One more place to check. In many cases there is a 30 Amp fuse in the positive wire. Follow this heavy wire down towards the frame. You might find a small black rubber fuse holder. Inside the rubber is an automotive blade type fuse. This holder is hard to spot and next to a junction box.

Thanks! Unfortunately, that goes into the underside and we have the black all under cover. Seems like the only way to Acess is to cut since the hoses are all silicone sealed.
Looks like poor design.

They may have forgotten to install a fuse. They forget other stuff.
I would to into the main power panel and find where the 12 volt should come into it and test there to see if you have power.
As I mentioned before, I put in a dedicated wire with it's own fuse to the jack. I wold recommend this in any case.

Yea, if they installed one, it is on the other side of the frame, covered by the undercover.
Would be nice if it is out side!
Going to pull the fuse box out, tech said there is a 15 amp fuse on the back that may have blown.

I may have missed something here but the 12V wire should come up under the dinette seat (unless this is what you called the front storage) at the front of the trailer along with the 7 pin connector and a few other wires. If my picture works you can see the bundle of white wires and the thick black wire near the bottom left.

Followed those, still no reset or fuse.
While I was in there, found slight water leak at the warm water fitting to the outside shower.
Tightened the fitting, hope that is solved.
Pretty sure not related, very slight leak.
