The only reason I can think for not doing it is that if you are running your car when you feel like the battery is depleting, then you will be creating a lot of unnecessary noise for the rest of us. This is especially true when you say Money is no object.
Tom there is another way! Add a second “deep cycle” battery to the toe vehicle with a battery isolator to the cars charging circuit.
Then run the tear off the second battery. If you kill the battery it will get charged from the car but it will not kill the cars battery so the
car will still start. Then the tear still has a deep cycle battery and the car will charge it if the tear is connected or not and all the battery weight is still in the car.
On another subject almost, I wonder if having a remote starter to recharge the car's battery while you were still inside the teardrop would create a dangerous situation with the presence of carbon monoxide in the trailer?
