New trailer for two bone heads

Aloha all, We recently purchased a 2014 Jay Flight 198rd and we are trying to get familiar with the little devil. We finally plugged it in to a shore line and everything worked....except the lights. When we plugged in the battery, they worked but we can't figure out what the **** we are doing/missing??? HELP!? Thanks!

Plugged in the battery? If your speaking of the battery on the trailer then, that is the issue. Your shore power will power your outlets, MW, Electric water heater, AC but your lights run on 12 volts. The shore power will charge your batteries but, the battery needs to be connected for them to work. Also fan on heater works on battery, along with other devices


Good Luck and congratulations !

Smile I told you we were boneheads :)

Thanks so much! We bought this cutie used (once), so we are flying blind here. Very scary for us. We are working like crazy to do a shakedown and head for the Pacific Northwest. Just seems to be one thing after another

Welcome to the wonderful world of RV!

Just when you think everything has been replaced, repaired or patched... Something else decides to go wrong.

We camp through the misery. And laugh about it afterwards!

Well, if you are coming up here to the Pac. NW, remember to bring your sunscreen (I can't believe I said that)! Hottest June on record and forecast is for HOT through 4th of July.
