Pulling a Ford Edge

DW an I will be going fulltime this fall and I was wondering if anyone out there is pulling a AWD Edge. If so could I please get a little feed back on how it pulls and if the battery goes dead by the time you stop to fuel up and try to start the the car and let it run for 5 min. like they tell you to do.
We will be pulling it with a 38ft 2008 Monaco Knight 360 cummins.
Thank for the info.

This big issue I see from logistics would be towing it if you had it on a dolly, which isn't what your doing.

Sorry, I don't have a Ford Edge, but doing a quick search on the Ford Forums brings up this thread....

4 wheel down towing - Cargo, Hauling, Roof Racks & Towing - Ford Edge Forum

There's lots of discussion about towing AWD and FWD Edge's.

Always check the OM of your toad, and follow the manufacturers instructions.

I wish I had a better answer than this, but I hope it gets you pointed in the right direction.

I tow FWD Explorer and ran a charge line to the Explorer. It's easy enough to do, so why not.

Pulling a Ford Edge

I have a 2009 Edge FWD, behind a HR Ambassador. Pulled 12K so far and only problem was battery. Followed direction in owners manual, had dead battery. Added line from MH to engine battery...no problem since.

I towed a 2008 Lincoln MKX, same as the Edge, for over 30K miles without any issues at all, they tow great.

We considered the Edge but I would need to run a 12" drop hitch inverted to get the tow bar level. My DSDP is 15" and the Blue OX base plate in 26 1/2".

Pulling a Ford Edge

Are those measurements with the MH at ride height? I needed a drop of 6".

Yes they are. I guess it all depends on where the chassis manufacturer installs the hitch.
