Default dodge charge lead

i have a 05 dodge 5.9 cummins and the charge lead off my 7 pin connector is 12v when the truck is running or not. is there away i can change that?
i was thinking about putting a solenoid under the hood then triggering it with switched 12v and running that wire to the 7 pin. im thinking it might be the best also when the key is shut off it will seperate my truck and trailer batteries.

Any thoughts?

I put a switch on mine, inside the trailer.

Switch on, truck/trailer are connected... with the truck running, it'll charge the trailer batts. With the trailer hooked up and generator running, the trailer will charge the truck's battery. And the part you want to avoid: with the truck off and the trailer running on battery, if the furnace drains the trailer batt the truck's battery is dead too.

So... switch off, the two electrical systems are disconnected, furnace can run off the trailer batt without touching the truck's battery.

Kind of a manual process, but it hasn't been an issue for me yet. Just remember when you're hooking up propane and getting the trailer going to flip that switch off.

Just run a 40 or a 70 amp relay. That would be the best.

That's not rear big enuf to charge the batts in the trailer and run everything. The pins on the relay would heat up and break off.

I put a hi current silanoid in line and its working great.

if you're running 40 amps into the trailer, you're going to need about 4AWG wire or bigger.

My bet is the 12V power line is fused at 10A in the truck. A moderately-sized power relay will be just fine.
