First thing and easiest to check is a fuse. $98 to pull old fuse out, see that it's blown and pop a new one in is outrageous. And if it took them all day to figure out that they should look at the fuses again, I would caution You to consider going elsewhere.

Glad you got it fixed.

However, I can't think of a magic fuse in the cab of your jeep that would cause brake lights and tail lights to stop working on your RV, while side marker lights still work.
One thing I would do is get them to show you where this fuse is, pull it out and see if this really puts your trailer back into the same trouble.If it does then get a few spare fuses because you will most likely need to replace it again. Fuses usually don't just fail, somewhere you most likely have a short in the wiring and it can be a real hard thing to find. Might only short out when the RV is bumped or twisted just the right way. If the short is gone when you take it into the shop they won't be able to find it. If this was my trailer I would get a meter and test out the wiring right now while it is fixed. Then when it fails again (and it will) retest your wiring again. Even if you can't fix it yourself, when you take it in, they will have a starting point to work from.

I think what happened to blow the fuse was when trying to pug the seven blade connector to the Jeep one of the blades bent over and made contact probably where it shouldn't have. The tech showed me the fuse that he said was the issue, it was marked as for something not even related to trailers or towing. It is Mopar so maybe? I agree the charge sounds crazy but to me, a child of the sixties, many charges are nuts. They charge $98.00 per hour for labor, they claimed they worked on for two to three hours. I sure appreciate all the knowledge coming from this group.

Typo, I meant locking the gates��--the park closed at dusk! LiseKen






Yes, of course a typo, and of course it was locked, not licked, I was fooling around. Struck me as funny. Too bad I missed the pug plug--we like pugs here, I'd have found that funny, too.


Not all typos are little gifts. Some are. These are.






The fuse: Sometimes these things take longer than they "should," and getting off for $98 isn't the worst that could have happened! 8)
