Any thoughts on battery isolator

We have recently purchased a 2015 RPod 179. Have had other RVs that had a battery isolator installed between the tow vehicle and the coach. As far as I know there is none on either my truck or the RPod. All the trailer manuals recommend using the 12 volt system to operate the refrigerator while traveling. If we have to stop for any length of time do we need to unplug the Rpod from the tow vehicle. If not does the coach battery draw off the auto battery? Any thoughts?

Grats on the 179, saw your question answered on the other forum. Good luck and we hope to see you out there Podding someday!
