Bob, Are you sure you check it correctly? All Newmars have two spare wires for optional future use. Did you plug your veihcle into it? And has the vehicle been plugged into another jack and it worked?

Hey Lug, here is what I did, BJ got in the coach and worked the turn, brake and lights, I checked
the plug with a light tester, no lights, checked the tester on the battery and it worked fine, I grounded to the hitch, don't think you can get better then that...pulled the fuses under the dash, I'm to old for that crap, ( turn upside donwn backwards)...I'm thinking the ground on the plug could be bad,,so might ground it back at the hitch. Popped the cover off the dash, oh my God,

who designed that and where is the diagram for what is what??????

I guess this is life in the slow lane..

Thanks for your help


Phelpo.

Did you test the dollie's lights? If your car does not have a connector check the continuity of the dollie plug. You should get continuity or if the circuits is open, the problem is not with your KS.
Also I'm not sure where the fuse is for the trailer lights, perhaps another member can help. There may even be an inline fuse too.

Your manuals gice a good schematic on the fuse positions for all locations, however they may be an inline fuse too which it probably will not show.

Still being built. Waiting on some non-option options.

Speaking of "non-option" options,I asked about floor heat for under the tile and was told "they would do it,but weren't crazy about doing it since they didn't think the product would last".....

I DID verify that the Triptek is indeed the 2520,which interfaces with the Smarttire.
