Me and my 2008 Eagle fifth wheel stranded at Walmart

The camper read that it was hooked up to the truck when I tried to move it for the fire time in a year because The driver lights went on with the truck initially while still hooked into the campsite power source. When I removed the campsite power source I couldn't get the lights to go on the camper blinkers etc. Finally they all turned on but while I was driving all the lights went out on the camper. That's when I started by Walmart saga last week. The best part is the front arms ran out of power as I was trying to escape the truck. I now have no power in the 5th wheel completely and arms are locked and dead. With no driving lights even if I fix that I can't go very far anyway.

The 30 amp fuse by the battery was blown and I replaced it. The fuse behind the linkage of the arm control was still good. Any ideas would be so appreciated I don't know if it's something stupid like DC to AC or battery needs to. E charged, Etc.. I'm new at this -but please help and thank you so much for your time.

I would say it is the battery from sitting that long. Might not have enough amps to run electric jack. Depending on how old it is you might need a new one. Good news is your at walmart and they sell batteries. :-) The running lights on trailer are probably with connection on truck, make sure it is plugged all the way in.

You should have a manual crank ability on that to get it off the truck. Should be located by the switch that runs the legs up / down. Hopefully the handle for this is still with the unit.
It sounds like the battery may be dead, have a bad connection to either the positive or the ground as well.

Fuse could blow because the voltage was too low and when you hooked up the truck and or used the jack the amps went really high and blew. Or its been blown for awhile and your charger wasnt charging the battery and the battery went flat.
But hooking up the truck should allow the Jacks to run.
