Will Curt BetterWeigh Mobile Tongue Weight and Payload Scale Drain Tow Vehicle Battery


CURT 51701 BetterWeigh Since CURT 51701 BetterWeigh is always plugged plugged in to ODBC port on truck does this device have constant battery drain ? Please advise with amount of battery drain? OR is unit only active battery drain IF there is active bluetooth connection to phone?


Expert Reply:

The BetterWeigh Mobile Tongue Weight and Payload Scale for OBD II # C51701 can be left on your tow vehicle but there is a little bit of a constant power draw. When I reached out to Curt my contact said it is similar to the constant draw of a brake controller so the only time it would actually drain your battery is if your tow vehicle was to sit for weeks without being used.
