"I wanted to share some information I was recently given about towing the late model Equinoxes." What was your source for the information? RVI customer service was the source of the information.

2020 Equinox Charging Battery While Towing

I have a 2020 Equinox FWD that I will be setting up for towing. I wanted to share some information I was recently given about towing the late model Equinoxes. All my manual says is to put it in neutral and push the ignition button to turn on ACC mode when towing. Then to run for 5 minutes every time you stop for fuel with your towing vehicle. I wanted to run a charge wire from our motorhome to the car to keep the battery up while towing it with the ACC on. I decided to go with the RVI Towed Battery Charger and a note on their website said owners of late model Equinoxes should also pull the fuse for the rear wiper when towing. I contacted RVI to find out why that was necessary and their response was that even when the wiper is not running it still pulls 6 amps and the charge from the motorhome wouldn't be enough to overcome the 6 amp draw from the rear wiper and the battery will likely still go dead. They also recommend unhooking their Towed Battery Charger when the vehicle isn't being towed to protect the Equinoxes electrical system. I wanted to share this information with other Equinox owners. On my 2020 the fuse for the rear wiper is #48. Here is the reply I received " You'll need to pull that fuse because the rear windshield wiper has a 6A draw all by itself, even when off. If you leave it in, it will overpower the TBC+ and you'll still have a dead battery when you get where you're going. One other thing we recommend on Equinoxes is to remove the TBC+ from the battery terminals when not towing. Because of the complexity of the Equinox and the difficulty presented by introducing third-party devices into the car, that helps prevent any possible issues that could come up between the car and the product."

RE: Self Install vs. dealer/technician install

I'm getting ready to purchase a 2022 Ford Escape AWD hybrid for a daily driver and to tow 4 down behind my motorhome. I'm handy, but know my limits. The video for installation of the RoadMaster tow bar definitely put me into the category of NOPE, I'll pay someone to do this work. Outside of my comfort zone. Any experiences with having a dealer or technician put in the various systems necessary for 4 down towing? Brake systems, 12 volt charge equipment etc? Looks like e-trailer shows a number of people in my state that do the work. But if anyone knows of places in Maryland that do good work and don't attempt the upsell to get installation of un-needed equipment, please speak up. Thanks, I've put on two baseplates. The biggest headache is removing the front facia on the car and then getting it back in place so everything lines up. The actual baseplates are simple to install.

RE: Bronco

Bronco engines have been blowing up as I've seen on the news. I believe its just the V6's with problems the 4 cyl seems to be OK. I know someone with the 4cyl and they say it has plenty of power.
