Sweet. I just got everything for my Ford Edge, Roadmaster base plate-BlackHawk tow bar 10,000lb, Air Force One and you need something like this to keep your battery from going dead.

Nice looking SUV Ernie! I was just sending you congrats on your new rig yesterday. You're going whole hog here! Are you setting up to full time?

We just bought a Jeep Grand Cherokee last week to tow. Got my base plate coming Friday and put a 2" hitch and 7/4 receptacle on rear today. Will use it occasionally for utility towing and for our Thule bike rack.

Congrats again! That checkbook is getting lighter all the time eh?
