Leo, the equinox is a pretty popular tow vehicle. Pop fuse 32. And no, mileage is not racked up while towing.

We're towing a 2015 Equinox LTZ V6 AWD. Tows great. As stated before either pull the fuse or install a switch.

Put a switch in for the fuse. We did it on our 2012 Equinox and again on the 2014 Equinox. Fuse switch example

One: it is not in the easiest place to access

Two: That fuse receptacle is not designed for the number of insertions we would put on it, about 40 times a year.
