I just returned from my first trip towing., 3 hours each way, no issues.
Just had Roadmaster baseplate, Demco Duo stay in play brake system, charge line to battery from RV installed. Along with Roadmastet All Terrain tow bar.
I also am towing the 2020 Escape Hybrid. Mine is the Sport LE FWD model. I bought a Blue OX towing kit from a dealer, came with everything (except brake system). Demco Stay in Play installed separately.
I don’t have a battery charge line installed. No issues so far, but I’ve only towed once for about 3.5 hours. When I arrived at the campsite, I started the Escape and just let it idle for a good while and charge as recommended.
Got a 6-hour trip planned soon. Will be a better test. Taking battery jumper just in case.
