BasicElement - can you tell me more about the Solar powered trickle charger? That keeps the battery topped off while doing this?I just talked with American Honda's Customer Relations and they agree it is a CYA for those that leave the light on.
Kinda what I figured. I've camped multiple times with the tailgate open and the light off with no problems.
One reason that I have the back power socket always on is because I plug in a small solar panel while camping to keep a trickle charge on the battery. They are available on eBay.
