I agree that the CoolTech setup is the way to go. However, there has been a lot of discussion about that battery disconnect and why it is beneficial. Discussion HERE.

ID:	31166 Before we picked up our coach I did a lot of reading trying to decide what to use for our towed. Seemed to me that a wrangler was one of the simplest to use. We picked up a 1995 YJ in great condition for little next to nothing. It was easy to wire using its own lights. The 95 wrangler did have steering lock but it also was easy to remove.

Sure does, just like having the parking lamps on.

I also posted in that thread Sarah, my setup is with a M&G braking system so my brake light voltage comes from my Coach to my jeep through the cool tech harness. Cool tech never posted on this backfeed question and if they did I missed it. Maybe the disconnect for those who use a braking system that pushes the brake pedel in the jeep?
