It's a diode with a 10A fuse, what could go wrong?

I have been using it for about 3 years and never had a dead or low battery, works great.

Did yours fail or simply not work out of the box?

Careful of some coaches, the 12V power is not connected to the seven pin plug on the rear of the coach. I had to wire mine, but the information was provided in the Newmar wiring diagrams.

I haven't had an issue, but in all honesty, we haven't towed more than two days without driving the toad and I don't think the battery would discharge in that length of time.
