I purchased a 2012 Captiva. Getting it ready to tow. Got a Blue Ox tow bar (BX3332) Same baseplate as a 2008-10 Vue. Instructions from Blue Ox show how to install on a Captiva. Demco baseplate for Vue will not work. Did not check on Roadmaster.
I will be using a Ready Brute Elite towbar and brake system. So far the hookup looks good with no interferences.
The only problem I have found so far is which fuse to pull for towing. Owners Manual calls for a 2 amp fuse be pulled. Problem is that there is no such fuse with name called out in towing section in fuse panel. I called Chevy customer service. After them looking at manual they told me to take it to dealer. They would tell me which fuse to pull. Been to dealer twice now. They are guessing which fuse needs to be pulled. At this time I plan to install and use a battery disconnect when towing it.
The instruction sheet for Blue OX baseplate
shows where to put a hole in rear tail light for a bulb. I have not decided what to use for tail lights. magnetic lights or a bulb.
We like this SUV a lot. Rides and handles very well. Hope to have everything installed by end of the month.
