12S wiring on Laguna 2004 h/back


Newly joined having found this forum when trying to solve a problem with the 12S wiring just done on my 2004 Laguna Privilege 2.2 Diesel 5 door hatchback. I am purchasing a new caravan in January. A Renault dealer fitted new towbar electrics and I queried that pin 6 of the 12S, which runs the fridge, was permanently live. I thought this had to be via a relay to save the car battery getting drained. I was told that this was not required as caravans manuafactured after 1997 had "electrical revisions" fitted which makes relays on the car unnecessay
The Caravan Club say that a car relay is necessary. The caravan manufacturers say a car relay is necessay. Utter confusion!!
I will know for certain who is right when I pick up the caravan but ...until then....any views??
