I removed the charger from one of the little boxes you find installed on the tongue of a trailer (boat, in my case) to keep the small battery charged. I had it wired to the battery and the hot wire from the motor home. This gives you a bit of a safety device that you would not have if you hook the hot wire directly to the battery.
I have little experience with why, it was done at the suggestion of a RV electrician, and it has worked OK.

I use the US Gear Unified braking system that charges the battery while connected to the MH. There's nothing to install or remove for each use. The braking install works great and you don't cut into the vehicle brake lines. The brake system keeps your battery charged.
