Blue Ox Patriot error message

I just returned from a trip and was towing our car. We have a Blue Ox Patriot brake unit. I got an error twice. When I checked the unit it said that the car battery was low. This happened within the first 2 hours. The car battery was not low at all. I also have a charge line to the car. We have towed to Florida and back from NY twice with no car battery issues. I had to unplug the brake and re-set it both times. After the second time it worked fine for the remaining four hours of our trip. What may be doing this?

I've gotten a few error messages as well and each time I didn't have something plugged in good.
One of the short comings of this system is you have no way to determine if the internal battery is fully charged.
When not in use, the unit is plugged into a 110 to 12 volt receptacle (just before a trip). Give that a try before relying totally on the vehicle battery.
May your pleasures be many and your troubles be few! Safe Journey.
