RE: 2017 Honda CR-V flat towable?

Here's your Original Post from 6/24/2019. It appears the 2014 was the last year that could be flat towed. Thanks! Don't know why I could not locate the original post. My question has been responded to and it's clear that a 2017 is not towable. Again, thanks...

2017 Honda CR-V flat towable?

This is a 'repost'. I posted it a couple days ago but, for some reason, it never showed was listed. So, can any one tell me if the 2017 CR-V is flat towable. I know some of the newer ones are not but can't locate info re: the 2017. Thanks!

2017 Honda CR-V flat towable?

Please see subject: I've been searching the forum but so far unable to determine if the 2917 CR-V is flat towable. I know the newer ones are not towable but is the 2017 one of the 'not towables'? Any advice?

RE: Need a bit of 'educating'...

Need advice on when/where to use 'tow/haul'. Use only when ascending/descending hilly areas? Keep it off when on flat roadways? Exactly what does it do i.e. does it restrict the transmission from it's highest gear? Keep it on all the time when towing? Thanks! Great info from all. Many thanks! Nothing like receiving a bit of free 'education'.

RE: Yes, another 'wandering' rant...er ... post...

A couple questions: what is the length of your motorhome and chassis and what are your tire pressures? 32', rear 85, front 90 Sunstar rigs are all built on a 18,000 GVWR chassis with a front axle rated at 7000 lbs and a rear at 12,000 lbs. No idea why the GVWR is derated by 1000 lbs. The tires size will be 245/70R 19.5. Front axle pressures are way too high for the axle and can cause straight line handling problems. At that pressure you have a load capacity in the tires of 7780 pounds. Dropping to 80 PSI cold, the low limit of Goodyears chart, which still gives you a tire load capacity of 7280 pounds, 280 beyond the axle limit. Same for the rear. 85 psi = 14060 capacity with a 12,000 pound axle. Drop to 80 psi cold also which will give you 13,666 pounds. Lot a wiggle room with tire capacity if weights getaway from you. I suspect you'll find the coach will be a lot easier to drive. Couldn't agree more! We're thinking alike. I will be dropping the cold psi as you suggested. Even so, road and ambient temps in Fl will cause the pressure to rapidly increase from the cold settings. However, they will not as high as with my current settings. Aside: Had toe in adjusted by 1/16th yesterday and the short drive home seemed to have made a positive difference. But, it was a short drive and I'll not know until I drive it a longer distance. I do expect dropping the cold pressures will make the most noticeable difference. Thanks for your input! Goodyear Inflation Tables (PDF)

RE: Yes, another 'wandering' rant...er ... post...

When you had the coach weighed did you shift items within the coach so that the front axle was close to the MAXIMUM allowable axle weight? A light front end will wander, even if the tire air pressure is set according to the weight. Thanks for reply. No, did not shift anything around. Yes, it’s the same as a trailer. You want more weight or the same on the front axle as the rear! I just bought a 2012 and it too was all over the road. A 3 hour drive home was a chore. I found out the coach has Hellwig sway bars, Sumo springs and a blue ox true center steering stabilizer. It also has 2 year old Michelin’s all around. I found the tow was out. 5/8 toed out. I reset it to 3/16 toed in. I haven’t driven it since because I have been getting it ready. I’m going to try and get it out this weekend for a drive! Good luck! If you find the 'magic wand' solution, please let me know.

Yes, another 'wandering' rant...er ... post...

Probably the most discussed topic on this forum and likely others is that of the notorious steering wander on Ford F-53 chassis’. Judging from the number of requests for advice on remedying the problem, it seems to be close to a universal problem. My 2017 Winnebago, Sunstar with less than 4K miles is not an exception. Why I did not recognize this problem when test driving it is a mystery. I was probably too engrossed with gadgetry in the coach such as a flat screen that comes up out a counter area, electric sun shade that coves the windshield, bed that comes down over the front seats, air mattress in sofa and other items that are mostly to guarantee a sale…well, you get the idea. I have done practically everything that has been recommended on this Forum such as: Front-end alignment, weighing the coach then airing up in accordance with Goodyear’s PSI chart, installed steering stabilizer, installed rear trac bar and had caster adjusted to (I believe) 6 or 7 degrees positive. Thinking about next having toe in adjusted to Ford’s max 3/32. All of these things have been recommended by, I believe, well meaning members of this forum and there has been a bit of improvement but remains a difficult, tiring drive. I’m thinking now about having a Steer Safe installed but wondering can one be installed when there is already a steering stabilizer? Also, I’m still open to suggestions (actually pleading for) …maybe something you did to correct this problem on your coach short of trading it in for a diesel pusher (admittedly, I’ve given that some fleeting thoughts) ?.

RE: Tire Pressure Mon. Syst. question...

Thanks to all who responded. Appears there are several recommended but TST seems to lead the pack. Again, thanks!

Tire Pressure Mon. Syst. question...

I know I'll likely get a variety of comments and that's exactly what I need. I'm getting ready to buy a tire pressure monitoring system and I need to know from current owners how you feel about the one(s) you own. I want to buy a good, dependable system and I need your comments. Thanks in advance... / Larry

RE: Where in Tallahassee area...

Have you talked with Sermons alignment (off west tenn st )? They are great at alignments.fyi we also live in crawfordville. Thanks! I did talk to them this a.m. and will be taking the MH to them Friday. He is very familiar with the steering wandering and knowledgeable about the movement of caster more to positive. Just wondering, do you have a MH and, if so, have you experienced the steering problem? This our 4th and each has had this same problem. Please give us a before and after report and driveability. We know this works on the E Series. Have not had a lot of feedback on the F53. Sorry! Should have provided a report as requested. Before: driving was a problem due to constantly moving steering wheel back and forth to keep MH heading reasonably straight. After: major improvement in steering. Although steering in the MH not quite as good as my Tundra, still much improved.

RE: Televisions don't work...need advice

Here's an update on the "out t.v.'s": The problem was (as suspected by most) the inverter. Found and reset the inverter's GFI type button and all connected to the inverter are now working. Thanks to all for your comments.

RE: water pump question...

Leak in the system. Any water UNDER the coach? Most common cause is the inlet valve on tank fill. Second most common is the drain valve being partially open. When was the last time you cleaned the filter?? Perhaps it didn't seal completely. Check the pump for leaks after checking the above two items. Let us know how you make out...Dennis Should have done a bit of 'searching' before I posted. Somehow...(?) the cold water valve for the outside shower was ON. The valve's nob had been turned several revolutions...(?). How (?)! The compartment door was locked so not possible for an 'intruder' to have access to the valve. Could it be that we have a 'possessed' MH? Probably not. But, this little mystery will surely go down in the annals of RV mysteries...likely never to be solved :E.

RE: water pump question...

It's possible that You've left your Fresh Water Inlet valve on "tank fill" rather than "normal". This will cause the pump to run continuously. Thanks! I'll check it out...
