Time for me to do this too.
Please bear with me, I can be a bit slow.

If I understand correctly, I am to:

1) Pull a 10 gage wire with a 30 amp inline fuse from the alternator to the hitch at the rear of the car.

2) Pull a 10 gage wire with a 30 amp inline fuse from the trailer's battery's positive terminal to the front of the trailer.

3) Attach each to one corresponding 6 or 7 pin connector along with the 4 wires that already exist matching the standard wiring plan.

What am I missing?

More questions:

&bull An RV place said that I need a heavier gauge ground wire than is already in the 4 pin wiring.
Do I?
Where would it get attached?

&bull Attach to the alternator or battery in the car?

&bull Is there any downside to charging while driving?

&bull Can you over charge the trailer battery?

&bull RV place said I did not need a battery isolator in the trailer because there is no power flow when the car is turned off.
True for the original wiring but it is only 14 gauge so I need to run a heavier wire. Is this still true?

&bull What else am I missing?
