Red face Newbie with question!

Hi, everyone, and thank you for the welcome, OO7!

I am a true newbie, just starting out as a full timer in my 39Z Bounder. Have never RV'd before but have dreamed and researched for over 15 yrs, and now I'm ready!
So glad to find this first trip is I-10 from Florida to Phoenix and there was so much great info posted here. Thanks to all who posted.

I have one question to start with....

I am towing a 10 yr old Honda Accord (4 wheels down) and will be using a breakbuddy. Previous owner told me I have to stop, turn Honda on, hold something against break pedal to prevent moving forward, then put car through each gear for about 15-30 seconds each. He said this needs to be done every 300 miles. Any thoughts, suggestions??? I sure will appreciate input from you folks!

Have a great day everyone!

Welcome to iRV2. Congratulations on the purchase of your Bounder and the decision to go full time. I am sorry I can't answer your towing question. I would suggest you repost your question in our Toads and Motorhome Related Towing forum. CLick Here I believe you will get your answer there.
