Not sure why nobody has mentioned on the battery killing issue (for those that have it) just running a hot wire and ground from the running lights on the coach to the TOAD battery. Run with running lights on and never have an issue.
I guess the other issue with leaving the key either on, or in Accessory is for some reason the car needs power somewhere or is it to run the brake??

Yes, if you pull the fuse, as per Honda's recommendation, or switch off that circuit you would no longer have power to your accessory socket. As we don't need power there for our Air Force One brake system it's a non issue for us. If you need it for your brake package then wiring in a charge line from your coach would be the best solution.

Retired and livin' the RV dream!
