Does 2006 Honda Odyssey Need to Disconnect Battery When Being Flat Towed?


Hi! Im going to be pulling a 2006 Honda Odyssey EX-L as a Toad for a 6,000 mile trip through mountains, etc... I have the ReadyBrake system, Blue Ox tow bar and base plate all rated for my weights. I wanted to know if I have to supply power to my Odyssey to keep teh battery from dying or if I need to install a battery disconnect or both? I know there are 40foot cables for running from the RV to the toad to supply power but if I dont need that and can just use the disconnect that would be best. Thanks for your help!


Expert Reply:

Your 2006 Honda Odyssey does not need to have its battery disconnected to be flat towed, though you will need either a wiring kit such as # RM-154 to power its brake lights and turn signals. Or, you could simply use Magnetic Tow Lights # TL21RK to give you these lights, but regardless of your choice your battery does not need to be disconnected.
