Slide In Truck Camper Charging Circuit For Coach Battery

Expert Reply:

For charging and maintaining your battery in your overhead camper you will need to add a charge line circuit. Most slide in campers will tie into the vehicle either through a 4-way or 7-way into the truck bumper. If your camper is connected through a 7-way you will need to find the termination box for the plug.

If you find your connection box you can tie into the 12V power wire on 7-way circuit. I recommend using the Tekonsha Two Stage 12 V DC Battery Charger # 2024-07. You can tie the charger into your camper battery so that when your 7-way is connected it will charge off your vehicle.

If your camper is connected via a 4-way you will need to convert your 4-way to a 7-way and add a extra line for the charger. The 7-Way RV Style Trailer Connector # A10-7081VP and 10 Gauge Wire # DW02508-1 will be what you need to add the extra charging circuit with the battery charger.
