Need battery isolator for my TV?

My TV is a 05 Dodge Diesel 4x4 with a tow package. Do I need to install a battery isolator or is there a system in place either in my 91 AS or the Dodge that isolates the two systems already? Thanks

Meager as umbilical recharging can be while underway, are you asking about the opposite situation; ie, parked for the night with umbilical attached and you don't want to draw down your TV battery?

Just wonderng if anyone knows if my 91 AS or my 05 Dodge with tow package has an isolator built in already or if I need to get one. If I recall correctly, if you don't have one, then the AS is always drawing from the TV as well as itself whether driving or not. Thanks

Most tow packages isolate the tv when the key is off. Put a amp meter on the hot tv battery while the key is off and turn something on in the Airstream that draws some current and take a measurment. Then turn off the airstream current and measure again. You will find the answer.
