Shouldn't they all be hot when tv is on? I mean once it's plugged in to trailer they all have a purpose right?

trailer brake prong is only hot when brakes are applied, running or parking light prong is only hot when lights are on , left and right turn signals are only hot and will blink when the turn signals are on

Thank you! I found an OHM meter here at the house can I use that? Do I test the plug on the tv or the trailer? Sorry if a sound so stupid but this is my first camper and I am learning. ha ha

on the tv but I am not sure which holes for you to put the probes in and what setting on your ohm meter to use

They have 7 prong plug testers just like your regular 7 prong plug. That way you can test everything with ease. You might have blown your Batt.+ fuse in your TV if you where hooked up to the TT. Then it will not charge the TT battery.

How would that have gotten blown? I had only been on 2 camping trips with it and always hooked up to power.

Be sure how to use an ohm meter otherwise you can toasted in a hurry. The cheaper ohm meters are not circuit protected.

When you are hooked up to your TV and then to a reverse polarity connection the TV Batt.+ blows. unless there is a relays and the fuse is before the relays. Hope I not confuse you now?
