I just purchased a 2012 SRC for use as a dinghy. My owner's manual has no instructions regarding the need to pull any fuses when being towed behind my motorhome. Does anyone have experience in using a 2012 SRX as a dinghy and if so, do you pull any fuses? Any other vehicle specific info would be appreciated. I would like to tow without pulling fuses, but I want to avoid a dead battery on arrival even more! Thanks in advance for sharing your experience!

I have a 2010 SRX that my wife rarely drives and has only a few thousand miles on it so I thought I would have base plates installed and tow it. After reading up and realizing I would have to pull 4 fuses and also limit speed and start it every so often I decided I'd end up forgetting to do something and damge it so I bought a 2012 Ford Focus to tow. It's light, inexpensive, 32/38 mpg, and a pretty nice little car. The last Ford car I had was a 1958 Fairlane. With the exception of Cadillac, I would never buy another GM or Chrysler product, Ford earned my respect and business.

I googled the owners manual, here is a pdf copy, it does have directions for 4 down towing. No mention of pulling a fuse.
It is in section 10-93

Good luck,

Thanks for input. Looks like no fuse pulling is required. Having the new Blue Ox base plate and wiring for my Roadmaster 9700 supplemental braking system (that I used with my prior toad) installed tomorrow.
