I keep my emergency trailer breakaway battery charged by wiring the battery  
to the running light circuit using a diode (part number ECG 576) made by  
Philips. This component will pass current up to 5 amps. In over ten  years and 
countless trailer miles I have not had a problem with this  setup.
On the other hand, if you're looking at keeping a heavily  used full size 
trailer battery charged I would recommend a battery isolator  set up as found 
your local RV dealer. This of course would require the use of  a connector 
with at least 5 poles.

Any tips on installing a auxiliary battery on a small  enclosed trailer. Can 
I charge it off a standard flat 4 conector hookup or  will it require 
additional wiring?
