We tow a 2013 SRX, running engine for 5 min prior to towing, put the shift selector in neutral and off you go. I read that it is a good idea to press the brake pedal a few times to empty the vacuum assist ifs a good idea so we do that. Then tuck in the mirrors and off we go.

Note the caveat certain SRX's like the 2010 turbo version are NOT flat towable, so make sure you check the manual for your model

I towed a 5,800 lb GMC Denali XL behind a 40' Coach with a 350 Cummins with no issues. I pull a 10,000 GVW enclosed trailer behind a 42' coach now with no issues.

Jeryan59,
Is your Denali AWD? I had been told that they couldn't be towed 4-down. (No two-speed transfer case). Did you do something in order to tow it? I stayed with my Chevy Tahoe because of the transfer case but would rather tow a Denali.

My Denali was a 2004 with a Remco Lube Pump, my Denali caught on fire on a trip from St Louis to Kansas City about 1 hour from home, ended up burning up my motorhome also. Cause of fire was never determined after insurance company hired a fire investigator.

Remco didn't make pumps for 2008 model years, so I would check with them?

I use an enclosed trailer now and really like it, Good Luck.
