    Could you maybe take a small generator camping instead?

    They sell battery low voltage disconnects. We use em in our work trucks for lights and radios.
    Shuts everything off when battery drops below a certain voltage so you can still start the vehicle

    I think you could install a battery box in the bed and use the wiring from the tow wiring to charge it. My RV trailer has dual deep cell batteries that get charged when I'm towing. If the 3rd gen is like the 2nd it's won't matter if you have the tow kit. The wiring was/is factory installed while the tow kit is port installed. A motorcycle battery would probably fit in the cubby in the bed pretty easy to keep the wiring close.

    Edit - When the ignition is off you are isolated from the main battery

    Depends where you shop. Ebay for welding cable, Walmart or eBay for a battery box, and shop around(not the big fancy Overland dual battery kits) for an automatic charge relay.

    A 2nd battery will run your accessories a lot longer than a battery low voltage cut off. A duralast gold 27f has a reserve of 165min(cant find amp/hour rating), a Northstar 27f has a reserve of 195min (92ah), but those capacities are until they are fully discharged. Think how long it would take for you to reach the 11.7 volt cut off.

    Better price point for OPs usage.

    The only downfall being runtime. Think how long it would take for you to reach the 10 volt cut off.

    You can get the 7blade plug as a replacement end and make you own wires into the cubby

    etrailer.com or the like should have something. As I remember there is a connector down there you can order from Toyota and just cut off the other end. Others have soldered into the existing.

    Any local auto part store should have this on the shelf. Just add the leingth of wire you need to make it to the cubby. This way you don’t have to cut up any factory wiring.

    No, this plugs in like a normal trailer wound. I’m assuming you wound not want this plugged in all the time. So you could roll up the wire and store it all in the cubby till you need it and just plug it in.

    If you want to plug it all in behind the bumper you’d proably have to get the specific plug from a dealer. It wound be replacing the bumper plug. And wound not allow the plug in bumper to work until you switch the plugs. Coins be costly depending on what dealer cost is

    Alternative wound be to tap into or solder in on the wire before the plug at bumper and run wire over. Just needs to make sure it well taped/sealed up so it dosent corrode.

    [QUOTE="...Edit - When the ignition is off you are isolated from the main battery[/QUOTE]

    Good conversation OP, thanks for your post! It sounds like a great idea to use a harness plug as a temporary power source for charging an auxiliary battery in the bed- but I wanted verification on this- when the ignition is off, all power is cut off at the trailer harness? I was told by a trailer salesman that the truck battery could still be drained if the trailer was connected. Misinformation, or maybe only true for domestic trucks? Anyways, thanks for helping me with my power project!

    Get devices (fan, led lights) with USB power supplies and use a backup battery power supply, a 20k MaH will run lights and a small fan through the evening and charge your phone too. I have the Anker 20100 MaH, as well as a 8k that doubles as a jumper pack and these work great.

    These are also awesome for daytime charging of battery and accessories with the appropriate controller.
