Why does my Edge battery go dead after 50 miles of pulling behind my RV?

Are you using the Edge lighting (brakes/running) while towing?  Are any other systems in use (power ports etc) or is the key left on to prevent the steering from locking?  Are you starting the Edge every 6 hours as recommended?  It just sounds like there 'must' be something in the Edge that's powered up while it's being pulled.

 

Cheers!

Further, you may need a special harness to keep the battery charged in the Edge from the vehicle towing it

what year is the edge?

ours is a 2012, i installed a 12v feed from the motorhomes 7 pin trailer connector. it feeds a 15 amp live to the battery.

and i also ran a dedicated 12v line to the aux brake device.

 

ours is push button start and you do not have to have nay thing on. just place car in N and plug in the brake device and your umbilical to power the rear lights and turn signals. i used a direct plug and play harness that plugs into the rear lights and you then run the wire back up front to the umbilical connection , mine is made by HOPPY and i sourced all the parts at etrailer.com
