RE: 2018 Chevrolet Equinox battery dyeing

Eric Have one of those and unless it's wired wrong the battery still goes dead. Did you follow the instructions to wire it? It doesn't use the 7-pin connector. The wires in the umbilical with the 7-pin connectors are too small. You must use the supplied wire and have a second umbilical with it's own connectors. Or you can wire it up to the 7-pin connector but you still need to use the supplied wire through out. That's how I did it. Here's a pic of my umbilical. related/i-xvHdqRW/0/aabe211b/S/umbilical-S.jpg I think I wired it correctly but I connected it straight to the MH battery.

This is what I use. TOAD CHARGE It's a little bit of wiring but it works. Eric Have one of those and unless it's wired wrong the battery still goes dead.

RE: 2018 Chevrolet Equinox battery dyeing

dave have you tested the 7-pin connector on the back of the coach to make sure there is power there? I am assuming you have a 7-pin connector, either way etrailer has some good info on the wiring setup, Trailer Wiring Diagrams scroll down for the Vehicle Side 7-Way The 7 pin works on all the lights ( blinkers, brake, running lights.) but I don't think it works for charging the battery.

2018 Chevrolet Equinox battery dyeing

Ok bought this new. installed a Toad Charge. First time out after 6 hrs the battery was dead. This year stopped at every rest stop and ran the engine for about 20 min ea time. Coming back fro San Antonio Had a dead battery 30 min out and jumped it ran it for 20 min and left for the next rest stop. Dead battery. Had to have wife drive it back to Mesa, az. Followed Chevy's instructions on how to tow it. Accy mode, Trans in neutral, parking brake off. What am I doing wrong? Am I the only one having this problem? Is there some fuse to pull? Am thing of getting a dolly. Don't want to do that but can't change cars. Help plz TIa dave
