2014 Honda CRV for Towing

Just got a 2014 CRV to replace our old toad and beyond what is in the manual for prepping the car for towing, any other tips other CRV toad owners can recommend?
Thanks much

I follow the owner's manual steps for towing and have added a couple of my own. In addition to the prescribed actions, I insure the light switch is OFF (it is normally on Auto), the Climate Control is selected to Recirculate and then Off, and I turn Off a fuse switch rather than pulling the radio fuse. The fuse issue is only suggested if towing for extended (8 hours or more) time.

We have a 2012 CRV and it has been a great toad. I follow the directions for towing it behind the RV and go. Easy.

The one thing I did was to add a Fuse Switch. I rarely tow or drive long days but the one time I had a dead battery sold me and it has been easy since. Our supplemental braking system is the ReadyBrute tow bar/braking so it doesn't drain the battery.
