We are new (6 months) to RVing. We purchased a used '07 Saturn VUE with a Blue Ox system and just replaced the VUE with a 2011 Edge Limited FWD 3.5 V6 with push button start. We will tow it behind our '06 DP Dutch Star. I am installing a Blue Ox base plate and will continue to use my Roadmaster Brakemaster air auxiliary brake system transferred over to the Edge from the VUE. For lights I have chosen the Hopkins custom plug and play light kit.
^ One thread I read mentioned height variances between the Edge and the MH hitch that needed to be addressed. Did you have this problem?
^ Are you maintaining your toad battery without a regulator in the line, just a fuse?
^ Based on some of the thread comments I've read can you tow an Edge without having to charge its battery as long as you don't exceed 6 hours continuous towing and are not using an electric auxiliary brake system?
^ Did you install your Blue Ox base plate yourself or did you have it installed; in either case what was the difficultly if self installed or charged labor hours if you had it installed for you?
^ Does the accessory switch turn off the accessories on the Edge after "X" minutes to your knowledge as I've read on one thread comment?
Thanks in advance for your reply.
