Flat Towing A 2019 Buick Envision


What parts, equiptment would I need for a 2019 Buick envision to flat tow behind my motorhome?


Expert Reply:

Before flat towing any vehicle you should always check your owner's manual to ensure your vehicle can be flat (dinghy) towed. After looking through the manual for your 2019 Buick Envision it looks like your vehicle is approved for flat towing and you'll need to:
1. Position the vehicle to tow and then secure it to the towing vehicle.
2. Turn the ignition on, and shift the transmission to N (Neutral).
3. With the transmission in N (Neutral), turn the ignition off.
4. To prevent the battery from draining while the vehicle is being towed, remove fuses 29 and 32

The items you'll need are:

Tow Bar: Roadmaster Falcon All Terrain, Non-Binding Tow Bar - Motorhome Mount - 2" Hitch - 6,000 lbs Item # RM-522

Tow Bar Wiring: Roadmaster Universal Hy-Power Diode Wiring Kit Item # RM-154. Note: If RV has a 3-wire system (and is not already wired for a trailer connector) a converter is required ( RM-732 - sold separately).

Baseplates: Roadmaster Direct-Connect Base Plate Kit - Removable Arms Item # RM-523196-5

Braking System: Brake Buddy Classic 3 Portable Supplemental Braking System Item # HM39494 which will wire directly to your battery so you'll also need the BrakeBuddy Towed Vehicle Battery Charge Kit Item # BB54FR which will charge your battery while you drive.

Safety Cables: RoadMaster 68" Single Hook, Coiled Safety Cables - 6,000 lbs Item # RM-643
