Good Luck and congratulations !
The battery does not need to be connected for the 12V systems to work. There is going be another problem that has not been found as yet. Check the two 30 amp fuses in the converter. One of them may be blown. This would account for the lights only working when the battery is connected. In the current state the battery is not being charged. It is also possible the converter itself may be bad. Maybe even as simple as the circuit breaker feeding it has tripped.

This is what I was thinking. My 12V systems work with or without the battery if I'm connected to shore power.

And to the OP, I wouldn't worry about that bone in your head, we all get one now and then. It's just a good thing there's plenty of "bone saws" on this forum, you just have to be okay with the ribbing!

I have asked a lot of goofy questions and the kind folks here have always kept me out of trouble. Greetings also from the Pacific Northwest. They used to say we never tanned, just rusted but this week any sunburns/tans are legit.

Welcome Mauigirl --I doubt that you are really boneheads. Have fun and enjoy the world of camping. It's always a challenge but it's always fun and worthwhile.
Happy RVing,
Jeff

Welcome to the forum. And there is a special thread to memorialize those boneheaded moments.

If you go to Jayco.com you can download the manual for your trailer. We have ours on our tablets in case we need it in a pinch (the actual manual lives in the trailer).
