I came up with a very simple solution. After the original equipment battery went dead, I replaced it with a very good battery from Costco. Typically, I stop about every 2 hours for a quick break. First thing I do is fire up the engine of the 2010 CR-V and run it thru the gears as per the owner's manual. I let the engine run whole I do whatever else needs done - typically just a visit to the restroom - then turn it off. When I get to the RV park, we do take the car for a drive to explore and maximize the batteries charge. Just drove from So Cal to Redding with 2 overnight stops. Today, drove straight through without starting the car from Lodi. That's over 4 hours. It started just fine.

Remco Towing says: "When towing for an extended period of time, start the vehicle as often as possible and allow it to run for five minutes to prevent battery drain." and "When towing for long periods, remove 7.5-A accessory radio fuse.aaaaaa"

Did Honda change something on the crv from 2006 to 2007 up? I have towed a 2006 crv almost 50k and never have pulled a fuse or had a dead battery. Have pulled as much as 4 days with out unhooking but do
start it each evening when parking and each morning before leaving.No\charge line either.

I think the 'pull-the-fuse' requirement is due to the fact if your car has the navigation option which we had/have on both of our Honda CR-V's. With the Nav/radio set up, you cannot turn off the system when the key is in the accessory position, hence, the removal of the fuse.

We pull an 08 CRV and also use the Toad Charge system. Easy to instal, works great, no need to pull any fuses. Plug it in and go.
