Problem solved! When we had a new fridge installed a few years ago, they ran a wire from the battery, under the trailer, and into the fridge. I did the same thing with the jack. I ran a wire from the battery, under the trailer, up to the jack. I enclosed the wire in clear vinyl tubing and used cable ties to attach it to the gas line.
My next challenge is getting the brake wire to the new breakaway switch. At the wheels, I have a black wire and a gray wire coming out of a covering labeled "Brake Cable." Red wires run from the black and the gray wires to the wheel. I have to find out which wire is the brake wire. Then I'll use the vinyl tubing and cable ties to bring it forward.
