I have a Zig X2 charger which used to trip when towing (L200 with OEM plug and play towing electrics). The battery charges when the charger is not in the system (it's currently being repaired as a few components had blown).

My question is, when towing should the battery be in a certain position, i.e Caravan Battery, Car Battery or Off?

Also, should I trip the Zig before towing? As I don't want another repair cost.

Thanks in advance

Car when towing to charge the battery otherwise off.

Post 1997 licence holder?

Max tow weight = Cars gross laden weight + Caravans gross laden weight.

These 2 figures must not exceed 3500kg. And the Caravans gross laden weight must not exceed the cars UNLADEN weight.

Unless the manufacturer has set a lower limit.
