To prevent a dead battery on the honda, it looks like I will have to pull the 7.5 A accessory key lock and radio fuses; which of course means I will have to reset the radio and possibly the navigation systems. Or, as some have mentioned... run a charging line from the MH. So, can anyone who has done this tell me specifically how to run a charging line since I would really like to avoid resetting everything each time. Thanks.
When I wired everything up for the toad I included a charging wire in the 6 way plug. It is a 12 gauge wire going through the 6 way plug from the coach battery to the toad battery with a 25 amp fuse at each battery for wire short protection. I found a path for the MH 12 gauge wire on the inside of the frame.

Our MH already had the 12v charge line in the 7 pin receptacle. I just added a 10 or 12 gauge wire from the 6 pin connector at the front of the car to the battery, have a 15 amp fuse close to the battery.

We use Toad Charge as well on our toad. However, didn't like the connectors, so I permanently soldered the power leads to the pins and then used Ancor heat shrink. More permanent and don't have to worry about contact corrosion nor connector coming loose. Also we turn off the display to the nav unit when towing.
