Read the owner's manual! It's all in there. Refers specifically to towing behind a motorhome.

Staqrt the car in park and pull the shifter down through the gears to first, then back up to nuteral and let it idle for three minutes. After 3 minutes shut the key off one click and your ready to go.

When you get to your destinaton don't forget to turn the key off or it will drain your battery overnight.

Pause in each gear going down and back up. Going back up, if you overshoot neutral and go into reverse start over in park.

After the engine is turned off pump the brake pedal, as far down as it will go, 3 or 4 times. If you don't do this your brakes may lockup the first time they are applied..

Ours are the OEM's that were in the unit at delivery on June 26th 2002. That makes them over 9 years old and still working fine for our use.
