12 volt charge line

Anyone know if a 2019 Georgetown
XL378 has a 12 volt charge line in the rear plug?
Thanks

If you are talking about a B+ wire in trailer harness, 1) It must be 7-pin (NOT 4-pin), 2) is always (relay controlled) by IGN switch, and 3) Fused. Often new vehicles are wired, but MAY have no fuse or relay, (empty sockets) and/or wire tied up in bundle in rear, but not connected to harness plug? IF you have 7-pin w/ 7-wires connected, easiest to get a 7-pin TESTER, and turn IGN=ON/off/on and see if it lights? If it has 4-wire receptacle, other wires maybe pulled back and wrapped up in a bundle? You will want/ need tester in future anyway. Review of all FUSE PANELS AND FUSES can also give clues? LUCK

Thanks for the reply. Was just hoping someone with same coach had already gone thru this. Had just wired the toad and tested by feeding 12 volts thru each pin. Connected to coach and everything worked except charge feed.

My guess is that it does not come with a charge wire installed. If there was one, it would be the #4 pin on the 7 pin connector. I had to run one on my Mirada and ran it from the house bank (through a self reseting breaker).

Often if 7-pin receptacle installed, the charge line is wired back to near the plug, just tucked into harness; need to unwrap, locate and wire into receptacle; maybe add fuse into fuse box; maybe add relay to the prewired socket (Relay controlled by IGN, so as to turn off and not drain battery when IGN= OFF.

Thanks for the inputs. Turns out it was a minor ground issue on coach side. Once fixed it was easy to trace to the toad side where we found the charge wire was on the wrong pin. Thanks again
