Aux..., Braking System

Has anyone used a booster pack/jump pack to plug in the 12 volt cord on a Brake Buddy? Was wondering if this would work ok. Thanks in advance for your replies.

I was reading through the dinghy towing section the other night and there were a couple of people using them. One guy bought a Harbor Freight unit and said it lasted about four years.

With that said, I like to keep camping simple, or often you just don't want to go or deal with all the added work. Having to pull it out every night and make sure it's charged would be a pain to me. I would rather install a charge line. You don't need anything fancy.

I'm with Don on the charge line, did that several years ago with the Dutch Star and then the dealer wired one in on the CC when we got it.

Good morning. I have to agree with Don. The charge line, only have to do it one time. No added item to mess with.
