    Circuit breaker didn't kill the power???

    Got the TT sitting in the yard and was in it today preping it for the next trip. Had the radio on and when I was ready to go to the house I decided to turn off all the breakers, but when I turned them off the radio was still playing?



    Also, have a breaker listed as GP or CP and have no idea what it stands for

    You may want to add a battery cutoff switch, or if you already have one, turn it off to shut down all of the 12V devices inluding things like Propane Alarms, radio, etc. that will drain your battery when the trailer is not in use.

    Not sure what GP or CP means. Converter Power is the only thing that comes to mind, but that's a longshot.

    Mike... Breakers are for 110v power and fuses are for 12v power. Need to kill battery feed to trailer for anything running on 12 volt like lights and radio etc. Like Dan says, maybe install a battery cut off switch or just disconnect the battery leads.
