Hi All, I've got a 2021 Cherokee Wolf Pup 16BHS and Ive read on some other forums that some tow-package setups will provide a charge to the battery when hooked up (at least a trickle charge). Some other trailer forums and here suggest this is common on other vehicles, or may require some hardware to be installed (a solenoid, according to etrailer), or follow these instructions according to ItStillRuns.com.

Anyone know if the factory/dealer tow package would charge the trailer battery? Has anyone done any mods to boost power? I plan to do some dry camping and want to have a 'backup' if we need a charge :)

If you need a backup for boondocking you should look at solar and a generator setup a 2k watt will charge the batteries up and maybe run a couple small appliances. You may also want to look at increasing battery capacity if you are planning to dry camp a lot. Dual 6v golf cart batteries are a common upgrade.
