    I was wondering if anyone has had problems running the interior lights from just the wiring harness connected to the tow vehicle. My camper doesn't seem to want to turn on when connected to the vehicle, only works when connected to shore power.

    My old gal only works off the battery or shore power. There are more wires than the flat four I use on the tongue plugin.

    @Kwfixer, help us with a few more clues:

    1. Is there a battery in the circuit (typically on the trailer tongue)?
    2. When you attempt to run the lights using the TV (tow vehicle), is your TV running?
    2a. If TV not running, is the accessory conductor in the TV's connector live? (hint: voltmeter time)
    3. Are all of the fuses good on the converter in the trailer's cabin?
