We have done a shakedown cruise with our new to us DP and Tracker. We have towed flat many times before and already had the hardware for towing. The Tracker tracks
perfectly and is very light. We used a Blue Ox Tow bar and, for the first time a Brake Buddy. The brake buddy works well especially with the sensitivity set at 3 and the air down to 20lbs. It has the added advantage of lighting the brake lights when in operation. I ran an 12v pair back to the battery to prevent draining it.
We used one of the standard cheapo magnetic tow light sets left over from our old toad. I have to say it was not so good with the tracker because the placement choices were not so good. It is a convertible and the magnets did not hold well through the vinyl. They also did not hold when put on the sides.
Has anyone wired the lights directly to the RV and was it easy or convenient to use? do the lights work normally when not towing? If diodes are needed does it make the lights dim?We will be full timing on January and I want it to be easy to hook up.
Then there is the hangs on the back bumper style. Is that secure? Easy to use I suppose.
Thanks in advance for any and all advice.
