That brush looks pretty good. What I use is a long cotter pin with a very small strip of crocus cloth held between the legs. I put the cotter pin in my drill and spin away! Not as fast as your brush for on-the-spot repair but very easy for preventive maintenance. Sorry, I did not mean to hijack the thread! Flagelpater

I believe the black box that powers my Toad from the Coach also acts like an isolator as well. The directional and brake inputs from the coach go into the black Box but the power going to the Toad comes directly from the coach battery Not putting an extra load on the Coach lighting wire system and not loading the toad battery at all. Perhaps someone else can confirm this? I only know what I was told.

An example can be found here: http://www.autoanything.com/towing/65A4159A0A0.aspx

Also the following link indicates dielectric grease may be used.

I dont get it guys, i have a 2003 crv and i have pulled it for 5 years, 8 hours or more a day and i have never had a low battery, always starts right up. if mine did fail i would look for a new battery. and the other guy is right NEVER go from REVERSE to neutral, you will destroy your transmission, seen a guy camping beside of me do that.

Your 2003 CR-V and the 2007-2009 CR-Vs are totally different vehicles. Your 2003's accessories are not controlled by relays, you don't have a factory installed navigation system, you don't have a computer controlled Maintenance Minder that determines when you need service, your engine, transmission, and dual clutch rear end are different. In other words, there is nothing in your 2003 CR-V that is in the later model CR-Vs.

So each owner needs to read their owners manual for the correct towing procedure.

Did you add an additional bulb socket for the new LED's?


What is a good source for better LED bulbs which would
fit a 2009 Honda CRV ?

Thanks

Is that company 'lslproducts.com' ?

That link does not seem to work for me.

Thanks
