Ken yes just run a #10 or 12 wire from the coach battery to the toad battery with a 15 or 20 A fuse or auto reset relay fuse 15 or 20, the ground should alredy be run with the coach lights cost less than $20 or you can buy a kit cant remember the name but it cost a bit more.

Toad-Charge Towed Vehicle Battery Charger & Maintainer Kit - RV Power Supply

Other home made versions are much less expensive but persons like me are not comfortable with electrical so we take this route. The device that monitors for over charging seemed important to me. I did modify the method of connecting the vehicles together finding the ones in the kit a bit flimsy.

Money well spent for me I have not worried about my battery since.
