Tongue Jack Power

I'm relatively new to travel trailers having down-sized from a diesel pusher.

My 2022 Winnebago Minnie 2327TB has a power tongue jack, and it works fine. Always. Even when I flip the battery switch and kill the power to everything in the trailer, the tongue jack remains energized.

Is that normal? I keep it in a secure lot so I'm not too worried about anyone messing with it, I'm just wondering if it's wired correctly.

If you'll follow the power cables from the battery you should find a dedicated 12 volt circuit breaker under the battery tray , for the power jack .
No wire from inside the trailer , straight from the battery.

The tongue jack is wired directly to the battery, so yes, even with the battery switch turned off the jack will have power.

It sounds like it is wired directly to the battery. When I put ours on our trailer I used a Push/Pull on off switch in the lid of the battery cover box to power and un power it.
