4 down Towing procedure for a Honda CRV

I am thinking about buying a used Honda CRV to tow behind our Motorhome.
Interested in towing 4 down and would like to know the procedure for preparation, hookup and tow.

Thanks
Pat

The pre 2015 CRV is very toad friendly. The owners manual spells out the procedure very clearly. 2015 and beyond are Not Towable.

It also says to pull one of the fuses to disable the entertainment system which if your a double jointed contortionist, is possible but, rather than do that, I have a charge line from the MH to the CRV battery. I did have issues with dead battery and replaced the OEM toy battery with a group 24 real battery using the plastic tray for an Oddesy. Very simple change.
Great Toad!

X2! On our second, CRV. FIRST A 2007 and now a 2011!
Like they say just read the owners manual. Stay under 65 MPH,
and start and run thru sequence again every 6 hours or less.
Pulls easy. We have the BLUE OX hitch with a ready brake assist.

I just got a 2014 CR-V and set it up. As a previous poster said, the recommended fuse pulling is nearly impossible. Immediately buy or make your own fuse by-pass switch or install a toad charge wire from the motorhome. I did both ... belt and suspenders you know.

Another testament for the larger battery.

On our last trip, by mistake, I left the ignition in the On position instead of Aux. That means the daytime running lights are on. Well, after about 5 hours, I stopped and saw the lights on.
Car started up No Problem. I can assure you with the OEM battery, it would have been Stone Dead.
