Question on Kodiak 200QB

We purchased our 2014 Kodiak 200QB in March of 2014, then moved to Colorado in June. We noticed two things after wintering our trailer from late October to late April:

1.Although the battery says it is fully charged, we cannot operate the power hitch unless the trailer is connected to our truck or plugged in. We thought there might be a fuse between the battery and trailer, but cannot locate it to check that.

2.The Furion CD/DVD/Radio combo unit does not want to load either CD's or DVD's. We have cleaned the player with a cleaning disc, and, of course, the unit went out of the one-year warranty while it was still winterized.

Any suggestions from other users on what to do on the battery or whether it might be productive to pursue a warranty claim on the CD/DVD player? We have not yet taken the trailer to an authorized dealer, who is about 30 minutes away from us, but that might be the best thing to pursue. Just wanted other users' input. Thanks.

Sounds like the power jack might be mis-wired, possibility of a bad battery too, or a blown circuit breaker. There is a circuit breaker on the tongue of the trailer that can get blown is someone hooks the battery up backwards. Does all of your other 12 volt stuff work on battery power only?

As far as the stereo, you can try to get the dealer to replace it. FWIW I use a TV with a separate DVD player.

Thanks for the thoughts. Battery checked out ok and fully charged but still won't power anything. Could not locate fuse on tongue but will take to dealer to investigate.
