elec jack, jacked up!!

I parked the trailer in front of the house in the driveway. I disconnected the wing nut that holds the wire that goes to the jack. Went out today and nothing. I also noticed that when i turned the on switch in the trailer, NOTHING! I then hooked up the generator, and noticed that the kill switch just inside the door was on.... the lights worked, the air worked, but still the Jack did not work, nor did the light come on. I did check the fuse that leads into the jack with a guage, and it showed that the fuse was good. Any ideas??
Only thing I did so was unhook the main battery from its post but then decided to hook it back up, and just disconnect the wire coming from the jack... (If the battery did go dead, and It might have because nothing worked before I hooked up the generator, shoulden't the jack work when the generator is hood up?

Does your jack have a switch on the front for a light? If so does the light work? On my 19' ccd there are two switches side by side. One for the jack and one for the light.

If the light works, there is power. If not, then your answer can maybe answered by someone else.

Good luck.

Thanks for help

thanks for the help. I did figure it out! Battery was dead. That being said I charged it, water level was good! We just got back from a long trip so it should have been charged. Maybe,,,,just maybe I left something on??? I am hoping that to be the case. One thing I did notice is that one of the breaker switches in my 16ft bambi ccd will not set. Its the third one from left to right as your looking at it. Its the one with a small white test button. It dosen't seem to be effecting the functioning of anything I can see. Will look into why its not re-setting. Anyone know off hand what it affects?? thanks again.... Did notice also that one of the terminals was some what corrosive? maybe,,, it was enough to stop the charging... maybe.... mike
