Don't pull that fuse again

When I tow my Honda CRV behind my Entegra, I'm going to have to pull a fuse on the toad. The fuse box is located low and under the dash. To get to it, I'll have to get down on my knees, with a flashlight, and from an awkward angle use a fuse puller. There just has to be a better way and there is. Today I ordered one of these - RVpartsPlus Now all I have to do is flip a switch - now that's simple!

Tom, I have seen others use the same idea on Enclaves, Acadias, and other GM products. I guess it works slick as could be.

Besides being slick, one thing that really impressed me was RVpartsPlus' customer service. I placed the order and within a few minutes received a call from Rob Lowe, founder. He was calling to finalize the order but also took a few minutes to go over the specific instructions for my Honda. RVpartsPlus is definitely custom oriented and I would highly recommend them.

You can even go one step farther. You can get an AutoFuse from Towdaddy and you won't even have to flip a switch. The AutoFuse inserts into your fuse block and connects to your tow lighting socket. Whenever it sees 12 volts at its input it switches off the circuit. It can be set to respond to tail lights but I find it best to connect it to the 6th (unused) wire in the cord and connect that to a hot source in the coach. Whenever you plug in your toad, the circuit goes dead. When you unplug, the circuit re-energizes.
http://www.towdaddy.com is the website.

Why do you need to pull the fuse on the CR-V? What year is it? I just bought a new 2012 CR-V and set it up for towing. I do not pull any fuses, but I did get a charge line installed so the coach keeps the toad battery topped off.

I'm pulling the fuse as suggested by the owners manual if towing over 8 hrs. I'll pull the fuse which in the long run accomplishes the same thing you are doing with a charge line.

I did not pull the fuse on our 2009 Vue on the way home to see what would happen. About dark 30 the auto headlights came on, pulled over and pulled the fuse and presto the headlights went out!
