Just returned from a 1,000 mile trip towing 2008 Vue for the first time. I have a charge line running from the rv, hence no dead battery. Put transmission in neutral and key to accessory. No problems at all. Geary

I tow a 2008 Saturn Vue. I installed a rocker switch for the fuse that needs to be pulled. It is much easier than pulling the fuse.

This is what we use on our 08 Saturn to avoid having to pull the required fuse everytime. We mounted it just above the fuse panel on the passenger side.

Easier and cheaper way to avoid pulling the fuse is to buy a push-pull circuit breaker, wire it to a replacement fuse, after "blowing" the replacement fuse by shorting it out. I soldered 14gauge wires to the top of the fuse (chip away just enough plastic to nmake the connection, touch one wire to each terminal of a battery to blow the fuse, then connect to the circuit breaker. Mount the breaker in an inconspicuous location and replace the fuse. Now you can disconnect without opening the panel. On my 2006 Vue, it also made a great anti-theft device.
