RE: MKX owners, how do you tow?

Further complicating the question, I have just discovered two separate versions of the owners manual on Lincoln's website. Version one has the instructions on page 269. Version 2 of the owner's manual has the instructions on page 270 and these instruction are completely different! I will continue to seek clarification from Lincoln, but nobody there really seems to have an answer except to follow the book. But which book? I am confused and perturbed by this.

RE: MKX owners, how do you tow?

The reason I am perplexed is that Lincoln put two features into their software, "Stay in Neutral mode" and "Neutral Tow mode". Each of these modes is accessed differently. The first method is referenced in the owner's manual and the second method is not, yet they both appear to be aimed at towing. Why would they do this? It makes me uncomfortable not to know, but I can't reach anyone at Lincoln who knows the answer.

RE: Having the hardest time buying a new class A

Thing is about residential refrigerators is they seem to perform way way better Best thing about a residential refrigerator is I can now take ice cream without it getting soft and melting! And, they don’t catch fire and burn up your whole motorhome. An all electric coach has no propane tank and hence more basement storage. And the electric refers use far less power than you would guess. We have boondocked a week at a time in our all-electric coach, no problem. Just run the genny 2 hours in the morning and 2 hrs at night. In hot weather we are running it anyhow for the air conditioners.

MKX owners, how do you tow?

I need help from any of you who are towing a 2016 or later Lincoln MKX. A buddy and I both bought 2018 Lincoln MKX's to tow. I am getting ready to tow mine for the first time and we have a discrepancy regarding the towing preparations. I say to use the procedure in the owner’s manual which involves running the engine for a few minutes, shifting through the gears, and putting the transmission in "Stay in Neutral" mode, which is accessed by pressing twice on the transmission's "N" button. My friend was told by his dealer to use a different method to get into "Neutral Tow Mode". That method involves many more steps and is accessed by using the multi-way switch on the left spoke of the steering wheel. This method is very tricky to use, and is mentioned nowhere in the owner's manual. So far neither of us has been able to repeatedly access this "Neutral Tow Mode" without input errors. So, those of you who tow late model MKX’s, what method do you use?

RE: Battery disconnect and Backup for tow vehicle (Ford)

Instead of disconnect, you may be able to install a charge line from your RV and not disconnect the battery. Works on most tow cars, but I have read about one or two that will add miles to the odometer if the battery stays on. One product that does this is shown here.

RE: Touring South & East US

If you want to be in Maine in October make your reservations now. It is peak time there and spaces for a 42 footer, always in short supply in Maine, will be all booked in advance.

RE: RV Storage in Georgia or Alabama

Try NIRV outside of Atlanta.

RE: Holding loan for buyer

Instead of holding a loan, just give them the RV for free. Much quicker, same result, fewer legal fees..

RE: Gas or Diesel?? which is better

Why buy either when you can camp all over the country in a tent and drive a Prius? Look at all the money you’ll save. Look at the gas mileage the little Prius gets. Oh, that’s right, sometimes we decide to spend more money for a better experience! That is why people buy diesels instead of a gasser that can go all the same places for less money. So if saving money is paramount, get the gasser, or get a Prius and a tent. But if having the best driving and camping experience is the goal, you can’t beat a diesel pusher. The diesel drives, rides and handles better, but it is also usually better even when parked. The diesel will normally have bigger water and waste tanks and more batteries so you can boondock longer. More storage. And the creature comforts such as heating, air conditioning, entertainment etc. are generally upgraded on the diesels as well. So if you want the most in comfort and convenience, its the diesel. The gasser will get you there, but the diesel does it with more comfort, convenience, and style.

RE: Review of enteral coach odyssey

They have only been making them for a few months, so there is very little experience to be reported.

RE: Insurance Cancelled

I have my RV and my cars insured with Geico. I have shopped around to compare rates and Geico continues to beat them all for me.

RE: Purchasing rv without seeing in person

The cost of a plane ticket is peanuts compared to the investment and potential headaches down the road. Never trust a salesman, he’s got nothing to lose. Living that far away what are you going to do when it shows up with problems?Go see it in person. Excellent advice.

RE: Best way to use Inverter

Use inverter only if you need to power 110 volt items. At other times switch it off because it uses some power from your batteries even when it is at rest.

RE: Gas or Diesel?? which is better

Which is BETTER? A Cadillac is better than a Chevy. It is also more expensive. Likewise with a diesel vs gas coach except the diesel vs gas “more better” than the Cadillac vs Chevy.

RE: Generator exhaust question

I agree, the noisy ones are really objectionable. I once parked next to somebody at a week long event whose generator was both incredibly loud, and spewed noxious fumes. Awful!

RE: Is the pool of 4 down towable vehicles diminishing??

The new car"the Elio" three wheeled auto with an 85 mpg fuel rate is supposed to go into production in 2019. And I have been questioning the engineers about that being four wheel down towing capable. They have now finally said it will be. Hmmm... A three wheeled vehicle that can be towed four wheels down. Where does the fourth wheel come from?

RE: Diesel more sluggish than gas?

It is not just a matter of power. The big diesel pushers are upgraded in many other ways compared to their gas cousins. The big diesel pushers tend to have better suspensions, bigger fuel, water and waste tanks, and better amenities than the gassers. They ride and handle better as a result of the better long-wheelbase chassis that they are built upon, and tag axles on many of them. Bigger generators and more batteries with big inverters for generator-free operation of electronics without shore power. There is a lot more to consider than just the increase in pulling power.

RE: Gen-Turi Question

You may want to check with the gen-set manufacturer about their recommendation before using a gen-turi. Onan advises not to use them, but I have used mine plenty with no problems. I did rig a support chain to take the weight of the Genturi off of the Onan's exhaust pipe, as I think all that weight on the pipe could cause problems.

RE: 303 on roof

One coat of 303 is sufficient but two will last longer.
