now that you know what reading is you can go and test that plug on truck by touching blk to a ground such as frame on truck and touching red probe to the corresponding prong for 12 volt battery in the plug diagram with ignition in the on position and it should read from 12 to 14 volts

well when I was looking at the pic of your trickle charger it didn't have the check battery light lit so I think you are fine, as long as the charger shows charging the battery will take a charge

if there is a clean spot on it ... it wont ground through paint though ... you could try touching black to the steel mount that the plug is mounted to ... also just for a check you could turn right turn signal on and check that wire with it ... it would be a pulse reading like on off on off

Lukenick.. Just checking here. When your first hooked up your battery to the trailer and found it was dead, did you put the WHITE wire to the NEGATIVE battery terminal and the BLACK wire to the POSITIVE?

Also when you are testing your 7 way plug make sure your orientation is correct. The picture on the internet could be up and your actual plug on your truck could be sideways.

Otherwise paintinfool seems to be taking care of you.

PS... Your charging numbers are too high. Something is going on there.
I say just hook the battery back up to your TT and proud it into shore power and let the converter charge it.

Ok tried touching the receiver hole that is all rusted and then touched red to the blinker and got a pulsing reading like you said. Went up to 0.13 the highest.
