Anyone towing a Chevy Traverse?

Just bought a 2016 Chevy Traverse and plan to set it up as my tow car (replaces my CR-V). It is flat towable, so no problem. Wonder if anyone is towing one and has any tips on setup etc??

I tow its cousin the GMC Acadia. Its pretty heavy for a toad, but haven't had any issues. My setup includes roadmaster tow bar, brackets, invisibrake and a fuse switch. When Roadmaster did the install on my car they only used a fuse switch on the Batt1 fuse, but they now state in their documentation that two other fuses need to be pulled.

We tow a 2014 Traverse four down, this car is front wheel drive only, so we can also use a tow dolly. We pull a 50 amp fuse under the engine and two 15 amp fuses behind the pass. side front seat in the floor well, just remove the holding screw. We have a Blue Ox base plate, installed by a rv dealer, and I wired the car myself. We have towed this car many hundreds of miles with no problem so far. We also use a ready brake control. Our other car was a 2010 Equinox again with no problems, that car we only removed one fuse.
Good luck with your new ride
Bill
