CR-V owners. Manual info

Howdy RV'ers...

I purchased an 02' CR-V, found a Roadmaster tow bar and a base plate on CL, just bought an SMI brake system, but I don't have an owners manual and I would really like to read the section about towing.

Anyone willing to scan or type the towing instructions section?


BTW- I don't particularly care to work on vehicles, but installing the base plate wasn't too bad. Heck, most of my knuckle scrapes and other bruises are nearly healed Now I get to try my luck at installing the SMI unit this weekend or next I'm getting excited to start towing!

Automatic Transmission

When preparing to tow your vehicle, make sure the transmission fluid level is full. Do not overfill.

If Honda/Acura automobile with an automatic transmission is tow towed with the front or all four wheels on the ground, you must do the following every day immediately before towing:

• Start the engine.

• Press on the brake pedal. Shift the lever through all the positions (P,R,N,D,2,1).

• Shift to D, then to N. Let the engine run for at least three minutes, then turn off engine.

• Release the parking brake.

• Leave the ignition switch in ACCESSORY (1) so the steering wheel does not lock. Make sure the radio and any items plugged into the accessory power sockets are turned off so you do not run down the battery.

Extended Towing: If you travel more than 8 hours in one day (including stopping time), you must stop and repeat the above procedures. You should repeat the procedure at least every 8 hours (when you stop for fuel, etc.)
