That is an interesting way to do it. Wonder why they did not wire it to your battery?

I would be interested in taking a voltage measurement at the jack when it is operating from the 7 pin. I have a 30 amp (or is it 40?) supply to AUX, but I am suspect on the voltage loss at higher amperages.

I've never seen one wired like yours. I would not like that configuration. I sometimes raise or lower the jack after set-up to get the AC condensation to run off where I want it to.

Could you post a picture of the set-up?

The TT came with a manual jack. I bought this one from Northern Tool. I mounted a 7pin TV end connector on trailer frame wired to the battery so I can plug into it now or the TV. It works faster from TV at 14.7 volts than it does from TT battery at 12.5. The Jack 7pin could have been cut and hard wired but I like the plug ok. I can just leave it plugged in now to the connector I put on TT and if I have a dead battery I can plug it into the TV.

My power jack is wired to my 7 pin, I can run it without the battery hook up.
