Default No power through six pin connector!

Last night rained hard in Gainesville and we were leaving for Savannah this morning and the toad signal, brake, tail lights were dead. Spend some time testing power at different points including the splice someone made on the coach on the left side of engine on some wires and seems like no power! But the coach lights works fine! So, dear wife drove. We are in Savannah now and the jacks won’t descend! There is no motor sound screaming and struggling like it usually does!

This morning the jacks silently retracted which was unusual! So any idea what I should check for either of the issues?

All the wires do not have power, recheck the connection to the toad, both ends.
Describe the jack issue I'm confused.

Thank you, I’ll check the toad connections tomorrow and take pictures of what I find! The jacks were usually very noisy when operating! Tonight it’s silent there is power and you hear clicks but no motor running!

The jacks have a big solenoid on the pump, check large connections at it for power. Do you get lights at the control panel? Maybe a 12V breaker popped out? Not sure where that is on your coach but likely in the front panel.

Thank you Chip! Where is the pump and the big solenoid? I have power to the panel!
