Also your tv will charge your battery while enroute to and from camping as long as your tv charge line is hot.

Turbs, will it do this if the inverter/battery shut off inside the camper is off? I have heard conflicting information about this.

you don't need to use the battery disconnect switch when you're plugged into shore power.
you use it when you're NOT plugged into shore power and you don't want the battery to drain.
when it's plugged into shore power, it won't drain because it's being charged.

Ok, so I had my unit plugged in to a regular 110 socket and adapted it up to my RV extension cord. I was out doing stuff like flushing lines, trying the awning, etc. I left the unit plugged in to charge the battery but instinctively shut off the inside battery cut off switch.

Problem? No problem?

No problem; just no charging going on.
A dead battery; now THAT could be a problem!

Trying to remember, but isn't this true only for a 7-pin? I'm thinking that a 4-pin doesn't have a hot wire. Maybe they are all 7 pin anyway . . . . but I've seen some people with 4 pin use an adaptor.

The four pin is left signal, right signal, brake and ground. If there is a four pin on the TV or the trailer, the battery will not charge. Also I think for safety reasons, a lot of trailers will not use the hot wire on a seven pin i.e. for things like current draw from the trailer during engine start. Even though a high amp diode inline could mitigate this.
