n3qik Should be no reason to disconnect the Jeep battery. Plus, some aux. braking systems need power to work. Just run a good heavy gauge wire from the MH battery to the 7-way plug.

pkmcd99 Its not the towing thats killing your battery unless your using it to power something. You need a new battery my friend. But yes, disconnecting will preserve if something is drawing on it.
