None of the radio,CD, sat nav etc are working. Don't seem to have any power to it at all. Checked fuse in glove box and that's ok

Have checked fuse in glove box that's ok. Have took out the radio and can't see anything wrong. I've just bought the car second hand and the dealer said it keeps blowing a fuse about every 6 months but the fuse is ok. Could it be something to do with the tow bar?
