toad / dinghy primer?

Hi all... just bought a 2012 Winnebago Aspect and are looking for a "primer" (or "idiot" guide) to educate a toad first timer on the subject. Any redirection would be appreciated!

Look at the web sites for the manufacturers of your tow bar. Whether it be Blue Ox or Roadmaster, or whatever, they all will offer advice. A lot of issues of Motorhome magazine also have articles on towing, but you would have to search for them in past issues. The dealer that sold you the tow package should be able to help too.

In addition to what TonyDi has explained, the Etrailer website gives a nice summary or primer for those who are new to 4-down towing. They will even give a quick summary of the differences in the base plates of Roadmaster, Blue Ox, and Demco.

It's a very quick and easy to understand basic introduction with illustrations and pictures:
