That's something I'll have to look at to see if the same happens with my unit. I'd guess it's caused by dissimilar batteries. Different construction, different ages, different capacities, probably different states of charge, between the tow vehicle battery and the camper's. When they try to level out between themselves maybe the trailer battery ends up charging the TV's?

no .. but you should lower the leveling post to take the stain off the tow hitch and your vehicles suspension. im not a big fan of compressed springs... or rear sag on my truck .. so anything i can do to ward off that issue i will do.
