so...does the cable from the auxilliaries to the coach battery need to be a big honkin' #4 battery cable?
why couldn't you rig up a standard trailer plug, and just use the existing umbilical?
I know, the charge line in the umbilical isn't very big...certainly not as big as a "battery cable".
but in the past, when my coach battery has gotten too low (dim lights; or when trying to use the little 9" ac/dc tv, which just "quits" if there is a momentary dip in voltage...), I've just plugged the umbilical into the truck, and all seems well. I know, you don't want to run a bunch of "stuff" all night long like this, as you may not be able to start your truck in the morning, but..."in a pinch"...). Perhaps this would be ok, as long as you don't have a particularly high amp draw at any one time?
