With a complete battery disconnect you'll have to reenter the radio code each time you restore power. Not hard but a nuisance. You'll also find that the battery goes dead after a long day of towing. I don't know which fuse to pull to stop the draw.
Our dolly (Demco KK-460) requires the steering to be locked and the trans in Park.

Thanks, we have the radio code so not a biggie, just trying to avoid one more trip to the tool box...thought fuse might be easier...using an acme eze-tow...no swivel pan.

I tow a 2006 Odyssey four down. I installed a 12v hot wire from the RV to the Odyssey using one of the terminals in the tow wiring harness. Works great and don't have to pull any fuses or reset radio, etc.

Sorry, I didn't think about you not having a wiring cable to your Odyssey so disreguard my comments.
