Toad wiring problem 32V

I recently bought a Jeep Grand Cherokee and I'm in the process of wiring it up to tow. I'm having problems with the 7 way on the coach. Everything will work perfect then all of a sudden no power to anything, turn, brakes,tail, nothing. When this happens all these still function on the coach, just the power to the 7 way. After a little while it will come back on by itself like something is heating up and shutting down, then when it cools it powers back up. It doesn't seem to be a fuse or a bad ground as it does it intermittent. I did follow the wire loom back and it goes into 2 big plastic connectors, same intermittent issues on both sides of it. I haven't traced farther towords the front yet. I spent all day trying to track this down with no luck just the intermittent shut down. Is there a specific relay or circuit breaker on these Southwinds that can cause this? I sure hope someone else has had this issue and can steer me in the right direction. Thanks in advance for your help.

There is probably an automatic reset circuit breaker somewhere in the system. The breaker may be faulty, or you may have a short circuit, and it trips, then resets.

The tow plug is normally on a separate fuse from the coach stop/tail/turn lights. In your case it sounds as though the "fuse" is an auto-reset circuit breaker.
