Well, something is wrong in my wiring. Hopefully I can explain this properly. I have the 7 pin cable from the TV hooked up to this junction block which has 7 studs. Now, all of the 12V feed lines for my camper lights
are hooked to the black 12V stud. All of the grounds for the 12Vcamper lights
as well as the grounds for the running lights
are hooked to the white ground stud. The brown for my RT turn and the red for my LT turn, green to the running lights and blue to the electric brake. The yellow Aux stud is bare. I have run a 10GA wire from the black stud back to a 30A circuit breaker and from the other side of the breaker over to the + battery. From the white stud, another 10 GA wire to a ground stud outside the box and then back to the - battery. Also installed a 10GA wire from the - battery post to the frame of the trailer.
1. Camper NOT plugged in. Black stud in junction box and the circuit breaker has 12.3V. The yellow aux stud is 0.0
2. Camper plugged into truck but truck NOT running. Both the black stud in the box and the breaker have 9.3V. The yellow aux has .25V BUT the running lights are on the camper and the truck running lights are on very dim.
3. Camper plugged into truck with truck running. The black stud in box and breaker are at 13.9V while the yellow is showing -.30V
Only thing I can figure is that I might have to run the black wire from the TV plug direct to the battery and then make up another wire to go back and feed the circuit breaker. The TV wiring works OK with my car trailer hooked up so it has to be something I have done in wiring up the camper. Also, when I was going to take the trailer out for its first run, the trailer brakes
were on when the vehicle was moving without using the brake pedal. Must be a back feed somewhere. I have wired my 300W inverter up to the circuit breaker and outside ground stud but without camper plugged in, not enough voltage to even run my small portable TV/DVD player.
Can anybody shed any light
on this? Want to head to Fla on Friday so will be correcting the situation tonight.
