Toad trickle charger

I would like to add a trickle charger to my 2008 Jeep Wrangler toad. What do you have and how do you like it. I am going to use the RVI 3 braking system. Any feedback greatly appreciated.

Wiring a 12 VDC charge line from coach to toad is really not complicated:


From coach end, inline fuse, 8 gauge wire to 40 amp RELAY, 8 gauge wire to connector, same on toad end-- 8 gauge wire to fuse located at the toad battery.


"Trigger" to close the relay is coach IGN on.


Also 8 gauge ground wire in both vehicles.


Now anytime the coach ignition is on, toad battery is being charged. Ignition off, no connection.

I installed the LSL Toad Charging system. Great product at a great price.

If you were to run a 12v line from the 7-pin connector to the toad battery (with some appropriate fuses), do you also need to run a ground wire between the vehicles or would there be sufficient ground connection through the tow bar?

You should be using the ground wire that is part of the 7-pin connector - never rely on a tow bar or trailer coupling to provide a good ground.
