I tow a 2008 Honda Odyssey EX-L 4-wheels down. Have towed this vehicle for well over 60K miles with never a problem. Honda does not certify this vehicle for 4- wheels down towing, but I spoke with the Service Manager at the dealership where I bought it, and he said that I should not experience any problems as long as I stop every couple hundred miles and run the engine and go through the gears (N, D3, D2, D1) a few times to lube the tranny.

We bought a Jeep Liberty to use, haven't towed it yet cause we;re still waiting on the Motorhome to arrive.
Wanted something that was easy to tow and could be used lightly offroad if we needed or wanted it to.

95 2DR Tahoe. It get driven about 100 miles a year. It's what we have and it seems to be the perfect tow vehicle for us.

Why does my Jeep battery drain and will not start after towing? Towed to St Louis to visit parents-in-law and the Jeep would not start unless I jumped started it. Oh, by the way, if you ever visit St Louis, there is an RV park right downtown (900 N. Jefferson Ave). Highly recommend it. Look out the rv window and see the arch.

Dale, What year is your Enclave. Does pulling the a50 amp fuse upset the radio controls and the diver information center and other electronics in the cabin of the SUV. How is your gas mileage? We love ours!
