I kept having all kinds of brake problems on our 2014 Eagle 5th wheel after having a brake job done by a Jayco dealer. Found a wire pulled loose. Still only had brakes on one side. Found bad connections on opposite side of tandems. Wound up re-doing all the connections. Finally got power to all 4 wheels and now no more brake problems. Backed power setting way back on electric brakes and braking fine.

I had a similar problem with my 23B that turned out to be an intermittent short, (wire against trailer frame) that blew the fuse for running lights in my GMC 1500. The first trip to the dealer, they replaced the fuse in the truck, lights went out on the way home. I replaced the fuse a second time, lights went out after 3 minutes. It did take the dealer to find the short as it was inside the underbody cover. You might want to check your TV fuses before going to the dealer.

Had the same problem.

When we picked up our new JAYCO, we had lights. Then when we went to use it, the first time, our lights didn't work. Turned out that Jayco had run the green wire on two of the lights, to ground, because the were pulling too many Amps and with them running the wires to ground, they reduced the load, but after a while it caused the lights to quit all together. Find a repair place that will check each light for the correct wiring configuration.

You can't tell if a connection is bad by just looking. Get in there and physically take connections apart and check for corrosion and looseness.

Hitch fuses

Many late model trucks with the factory tow hitch will have seperate fuses for the trailer lights vs the vehicle lights. On my Yukon the trailer fuses were behind a little panel on the left end of the dash, facing outboard.
