First time towing the toad
Well we finally did it. First bought a toad, a 2003 olds alero.
Then ordered the blue ox system, with air force one braking. It works off the air bakes of the coach and I liked the idea of not having to install the brake system all the time.
Well we, (I use we loosely here, the shop that was installing it) found out on install day that they only sent the tow bar, not the baseplate.
We are leaving next wed for a 10day trip.
So while wiring the car they sent someone on the 2 hour drive, both ways, to Portland to pick up a road master base plate, that was all that was available. Took the coach over the next day to have that work done and got it hooked up and towed the toad home. Just pull 3 fuses and put in neutral.
Lots of cables and stuff, more than I expected but they all seem important.
First off I can't believe you don't need any kind of special license for this. 40' coach, 16' car and 6 ' tow bar.
Everything went great, (car was still there when I got home), and are ready to enter a new stage in our rv life.
A toad= freedom.
