That's very strange that there is no jbox.
I would still take off all the wires off the battery and not use it at all for your testing. Tape up each individual wire so nothing is creating a circuit; one might be ground on hot, who knows. Battery is only used by the charge line and ground, and no other lights, so it's not necessary.

The one on the right is a 7way RV plug, with the blades. The other is a 7way round, with pins for big rig trucks. What end is the 7way round pin going to?
I'd like to see those splices done too.

The rnds are hardwired into the camper. The splices are just broken wires ive taped back together

I'm surprised they are using a 7way round pin. Not normal. I've never ever seen that.
I don't think that "adapter" is wired right.

There is no adapter.... the rnd is hard wired into the underbelly and its solid to the spade end

Then I'm not understanding your setup. Why do you have that cable with a spade and round pin end? That't not hardwiring if you have to plug it into a connector.

The rnd end on the camper is wired into the camper. Then theres a cord to the truck. Unlike most i see that has just the spade end wired in. Mine has 2 plugs camper end and truck end. 7 spade on truck, 7 rnd on camper

Yea, so that adapter plugs into the truck, and plugs into the camper. Which is not normal.
What is that trailer again? Because unless it was special ordered, I've never ever seen one wired that way. I think that's the issue.

I think if you can test the trailer like I said, using just 12V straight to it's lights, you'll find out what the issue is.
