Toyota Sienna Van --- 4 down

I have checked with REMCO and our van has a transmission that will work with the pump. I'm checking with members here to see what your results are with the pump -- such as reliability, knowing that pump is working while you are traveling, etc. I'm having trouble finding information from anyone that is towing the Sienna.

Thanks,

Bill

I have seen a few Toyota vans towed, however none 4 down. The ones I have noted all have been on a dolly.

If the Remco pump works though - I put that pump on my 1995 Caravan a few years ago and towed it - worked well. The wiring system that comes with that pump allows for monitoring the status of pump at all times - never once had any problems with it and I towed the Caravan for about 25,000 miles.

Good luck.

God Bless

Bill

Contact Remco Towing to check on what is needed to tow your van if it is towable. Toyota makes very few vehicles towable 4 down.

REMCO has been helpful and went over the transmissions that Toyota puts in the Sienna -- our trans. Number is one that will work ....the reason for the post is that we have been unable to talk to anyone that is towing the Sienna ---.other than on a dolly.

Did you install the remco?
I am looking at buying it for my 08 sienna toad.
What tow bar assembly are you thinking of?

No -- gave up

Remco put me in touch with a couple of shops that install their system -- no shop or records by Remco showed any Sienna that had the system --- really didn't want to be the first !

The local Toyota Dealer wasn't any help either.

I have seen one towed from Alaska to Palm Springs. 2 years in a row. He said that he had no trouble with the Remco pump.
He was towing it with a 35 foot gasser.

I have a 2008 Sienna setup with the Remco Pump. Have been towing since May and have had no problem with the pump. I have had problems determining how to prevent battery draw with the key in accessory. Have checked fuses and have even disconnected the battery, but this caused problem with my invisabrake system (needs power to signal braking through pedal break system).

Run a power wire back from the coach to your battery, that will charge your battery while you are driving.

Did connect coach to tow through + wire on coach's original 7 pin connection and this preventedd a quick discharged but still had problem. Checked amperage on wire and only 5 amp and car draw is over 6 amp thus a continued drain. I will take any more idea.

Leave the + wire to your battery. Connect your redi brake to your battery and put a battery cut off switch to the rest of the vehicle. That will isolate any draw from your car. You will have to reset your clock and radio stations but that is better than a dead battery.
