Flat Towing a 2020 Chevy Equinox Premier 2.0 L

Does anybody currently flat tow a 2020 Chevy Equinox 2.0L and does it change the odometer reading ? Also, is there any special work around to prevent the toad's battery from discharging? Any other lessons learned would be appreciated also.
Thank you in advance,

We tow a 2019 Equinox, it doesn’t record miles. It charms or alarms for 30 minutes when towing. I ran a charging line. Roadmaster sells charging kit which was an easy install. Overall a good tow vehicle.

We tow a 2020 Equinox Redline Edition. No issues and tows well. As 'Darwin' stated you'll need a charge line for the battery. Ensure you follow the towing directions in the operator manual and should have no problems.

I installed a Roadmaster base plate and a direct-connect tail, brake and turn signal harness myself - wasn't to bad of a job. We use an RVi braking system.

Hope this helps

We have a 2020 equinox that we flat tow. It works fine just follow the manual. That said I did have issues with the battery discharging,my fault I left something on in the car. We stop every2-3 hour on the road and I run the toad to make sure the battery is charged and to make sure transmission is lubricated.
