1st trip issues with my 2021 White Hawk BH29

We were trying to stay local to give our new TT a test drive and I'm thankful for.. Everything worked well as expected and had a great trip to a State park for half the week. On the way home I lost my brakes on the TT and the lights as well... I only had the driver side break light and running lights work when the brake was applied. Checked my hook ups and still nothing.. I have some work cut out for me considering this is a lot newer than my last White Hawk..

If there any suggestions the community can give it would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks- Mac

So if you trailer is wired at all like mine. My trailer lights and emergency brake and 7 pin connector are wired up in the little black box on the front of the trailer. I would look there for a loose wire. Also check the fuses there as well on my 2021 212qbw I have a 50amp which Is battery to converter. I have a 30amp which is my solar then I have a 20amp which is my trailer brakes trailer lights and electric jack

Macdog1982 - You might also trace the ground wire from that J-Box to where it is connected to the trailer frame. Check for loose or corroded connection. My trailer from factory was landed with screw into frame but surface contact area was paint. Needed to scrape/sand frame to remove paint to insure proper ground.

Good luck, let us know what you find.

And add some Dielectric grease to the connection.

I lost brakes and lights the 3rd or 4th time out with our new Talon. The self tapping screw holding the ground wire broke off. Appeared to be tourqued to much at the factory. Pretty easy fix. Hope yours is that simple.

All of your symptoms point to a lost ground connection. I agree it is likely the ground wire to trailer frame is not connected properly, or the wire has a break somewhere. You can do a quick test by completing the ground circuit to the trailer battery negative terminal via a jumper wire, if that solves the issue then you have to search for the fault in the trailer ground wiring.
And putting dielectric grease on all the bare wire parts at connections is a good way to avoid corrosion and future problems

Hope you were able to find it! Losing TT breaks is a bad feeling. It happened to me, too, only it was just the brakes. Found wires came apart at the wheels. Good luck!
