  • Base Plate, Tow Bar and Accessories Needed to Flat Tow 2014 Chevy Equinox Behind Motorhome
  • It sounds like you have a good handle on exactly what you need. The Blue Ox # BX1689 base plates you mention are exactly what I'd choose. I've found BlueOx base plates to be very well engineered and easy to use. The primary difference between the Blue Ox Alpha # BX7365 and the Aladdin, part # BX4325 tow bars is the capacity. The Alpha with its 6500 lb capacity would be just fine for the weight of your Equinox, unless you were planning on going with a heavier vehicle and the future and feel...

  • Parts Needed to Flat Tow a 2015 Honda Fit Behind a Motor Home
  • Basically, the difference between EZ4 base plates # RM-521569-4 and EZ5 base plates # RM-521569-5 for the 2015 Honda Fit is the design of the draw bar arms. The EZ4 base plate arms have a wide flat front to attach to the Roadmaster tow bar crossbar. The EZ5 base plate arms have 2-prong ends that attach directly to the tow bar without the use of the crossbar. Both sets will work with the Falcon 2 tow bar # RM-520 but the EZ5 would be easier to use. The base plates include short safety...

  • What Would Cause Hitch Ball to Wear Excessively After 30 Miles
  • I spoke with my contact at Draw-Tite and he said excessive turning could wear a groove into a hitch ball if the ball is not kept well lubricated. He recommended keeping the hitch ball well lubed with a lithium automotive grease like # 58117 to reduce friction. You will also want to check up inside the coupler for any debris that may be grinding away at the ball. Also if the ball is smaller than what the coupler requires the coupler would be able to move around quite a bit and wear down...

If you leave the battery connected then what will happen is the battery will drain unless you stop frequently enough to let the Suburban motor run so the alternator can charge the battery back up. But there is a way to provide a maintenance charge to the vehicle battery when flat towing it with the battery...
