Towing our Honda accord, Finally
We finally had our 94 Honda Accord, (5 speed) rigged up to tow. I had bought a Blue Ox tow bar on Craigs List last year and now was the time to get the car set-up. I had a Roadmaster basplate installed with a Roadmaster Invisibrake. (in the trunk) Back when I got the tow bar, it came with the electric cable and two breakaway cables, and a hitch lock. It also had a 4" drop receiver which was what I needed to keep the bar level. The local Hitch & Tow did the job for a reasonaable price and I'm really pleased with it. Only had to tow it 15 miles to store it until the next trip, but it worked great.
I have a question or two:
Do you lock the doors on the vehicle you tow while towing?
Do you fold the mirrors in against the sides? (if you can do so)
Do you have a certain order to hooking up everything?
I have to keep the key in the ignition on ACC to keep the steering unlocked and pop the face off the radio. Can you believe it doesn't turn off? (Kenwood aftermarket)
Here's a funny thing that we learned while disconnecting. We were stopped on a slight incline when we parked at the storaage lot, (didn't realize it was). When I pulled the pins from the tow bar bracket, the car started rolling away from us. DW jumped in and put on the emergency brake. Ooops, we both learned something today.
