Question Flat Tow my 2017 Trailhawk

What else do I need? Here is what I have so far.
I am going to flat tow my 2017 Cherokee Trailhawk behind my motor home. I have installed the Blue OX base plates and a Hopkins wiring harness for the tail and brake lights. Will take it to dealer and have the Mopar 68321424 AB Flat Tow Kit installed for the death wobble Not sure yet what breaking system I will use. However I have run a wire from the AUX 12 volt in 7 wire to 6 wire connector up to the area of the battery. Do I need some sort of battery charger to keep the battery from running down while towing. I have been told that the Mopar Flat tow Kit uses the battery while towing to prevent the Death Wobble and that the battery will run down if not charged by the motor home while towing. What else do I need.

You can buy a battery maintainer from Amazon for about $25.00. I’ve used this on my dinghy for a couple of years. Mine was a Hopkins model 39322.
