So if i run a real heavy wire straight from postive post on truck batt to positive on rv battery it will charge or equalize the voltage as i drive right. Or is there a kit available to do this?

So then what I'd like to try is running a heavey wire from positive post on truck batt straight to psitive post on rv batt and let the ground go through the frame. I know this description sounds crude but then it would charge properly or equalize the voltage as I was driving. ??I wonder if others have done this or purchased a kit. It seems simple....

A brief THANK YOU for the posts here regarding Fords relay/fuses being in the glovebox. I towed my trailer up and down the mountain for some warranty work for a total of about 4 hours. After getting home, power jack was barely operable and all lights were dim. Figuring it was odd that 4 hours being hooked up only got me to a 1/3 charge....I came to the JOF for advice.

Found the relay and fuse in my glovebox, located the proper slots for them and look forward to normal trickle charging in the future. THANK YOU ALL FOR THE GREAT ADVICE!

On my 2008 F250 PU I have to have the engine running to get 12 volts on pin 4 of the seven pin connector. Just turning the ignition key on doesn't produce 12 volts on that pin. Which is good in case the house battery is way down in charge. My PU came with pin 4 hooked up and already fused.
