You do have to follow the steps as listed in the manual. If you deviate it may not work.
I did tow it a few times around the storage unit just to make sure it worked. I had the Brake Buddy Stealth installed on the truck and motorhome. When it was installed the motorhome had a recall on the hitch so I could not tow it until it was fixed. I missed a trip to San Antonio during Thanksgiving week because of the recall. We ended up staying at a hotel on the river. Very disappointed I was not able to tow the Colorado.
Thanks for the response.
I agree, the manual doesn't leave any room for doubt as to the procedure they want when towing four down.
I guess I was overly concerned about a couple threads I was reading where a post said they had to put a tranny fluid pump on. I'm going with the opinion it was an earlier model or the poster was trying to play it extra safe.
Happy to hear it tows as advertised. I hope to get mine set up within the next month. I've gotten prices for fully installed Blue Ox BP, tow bar and the Air Force1 (and wiring the truck) for $3800 all the way up to $6000.
I retire in two weeks and will have time to get it all done after that.
