Jeep towing?

Towing 2018 jeep latitude with active drive II, i have the flat tow wiring kit installed with a togel switch in center column.
Question is, the 10amp fuse i have to plug in under the hood when towing. If i park overnite somewhere do i need to pull the fuse out so it dont drain bettery either to the jeep or from the motorhome?
I have a brake buddy wired in that has a fuse to and has a charger on that.
My fear is, since the brake buddy and the power steering 10amp fuse are being powered thru the cable from back of mh into front of jeep. I dont want dead battery on jeep or mh next morning

I have the same setup on my '14 Newmar Ventana LE and '16 Jeep Cherokee Trailhawk; I always pull the fuse so as to not drain the Jeep's battery overnight.

I have the flat tow wiring harness I installed in our 2017 Jeep Cherokee Trail Hawk. I didnít want to be bothered with popping the hood and messing with the fuse all the time so I wired it through a toggle switch I installed in the drivers area. I use a Stay n Play Duo braking system so all the vehicle prep is completed in the drivers seat. Itís very quick and simple but I made up a checklist just to play it safe.
