check to see if the breakaway pin was pulled out or part way out also try disconnecting camper battery and don't connect the wiring harness to the TV and try pulling out the driveway DON'T drive on any roads without the trailer wiring being connected

another thing you may want to try is have the camper hooked up to the TV and jack up one side and see if the wheel spins freely then do the same to the other side.

should be mounted on the frame behind the coupler look for a thin steel cable and follow it You will see where it plugs into the breakaway switch If its missing that would be your problem

I'm thinking the breakaway switch is closed, probably the pin is not all the way seated. Try pulling the pin out, then replacing it and make sure it is all the way in. When that pin is pulled, it closes the switch, which directly connects the battery to the brakes, causing them to be engaged.

I woke up wondering if you got out of the driveway?
