Power source to toad
I am in the process of setting up my new Ford Ranger for 4 wheel towing.
Yes, More than likely I do not need it, but I just want to be safe.
I am at this point wanting to add a 12v charge line to the toad vehicle.
My question is, What is the difference of utilizing the OEM power source already wired in by Thor/Ford from the cab battery to the 7 way or should I re-route it using the house batteries. This is the way E-Trailers video recommends to do it.
Is there some sort of regulator that the cab uses to charge the house batteries while driving and that is why they instruct to use a line off the house batteries instead of the cab?
I purchased the 15 amp auto resetting breaker and waiting on the Demco 12v charge line kit that includes the wire, connectors, fuse holder and diode (main reason I bought it is for the diode)
