Electric Steering

I looked all over for any info.on towing a toad with electric steering and can not find anything.
So does anyone have any problems with a toad that has electric steering?

Never heard of a problem, should work the same as power steering cars.

Some of the equinox 4 cylinders with electric steering reportedly had issues with wobble. GM issued a tech bulletin that changed the fuse to pull and left the power to the steering on. It was unclear if it fixed the problem. I have an equinox with electric steering but haven't towed it yet.

We have a 18 Dodge Durango with electric steering with no problems. Do have to get the 4x4 all wheel drive with low range and neutral transfer case.

My 2008 HHR has electric steering and we've had no problems. I'm not sure if my wife's 2018 Equinox is electric, but we've pulled it for 1,000s of miles without problems.

Make sure the manufacture approves towing and their limitations.

I guess you never herd of the "Jeep Death Wobble" that has been all over the toad forums. That's caused by electric steering.
