Any guidance available?
I am responding to my own post. Prior to my SC trip last month I checked the brake fluid and it was low again. Also notice a larger area of paint bubbling up on the frame. Looking more carefully I saw that the rubber grommet that the reservoir plug set into was not seated properly to the top of the reservoir. about 60% of it was all the way in the reservoir and only about 40% was actually properly seated. I pulled it out and reinstalled it and no more leaks.
Now to sand, prime and repaint the bad spots to prevent rust.
Adding a piece of chain around each lower arm on the Vue made hooking the safety chains a 30 second per side job and no more getting on my back to do so.
Last trip was about 1700 miles and no issues at all.
Alas we just bought my wife a 2013 CRV and I am toying with the thought of Selling the Vue and the Tow Dolly and switching to four wheels down towing.
