Just got a GTown 270SS with the 3-camera system; I've always had just one camera pointed directly behind my motorhomes. Almost had a heart attack when I was turning right my first time out towing my Ford C-Max because the toad was nowhere to be seen on my video screen! OH CRUD; I've lost the toad! Of course, with the right turn signal on, my right camera was in play and the view was one looking backwards down the right side of the motorhome, not the back where the toad was. Jeez.

When I select my road hazard lights/flashers the rear camera turns on. 356xl. It also has the side camera selected by the signal lights.

CTMDP,

I was told that any Subaru all wheel drive cannot be towed with any wheels down and must be flat bedded. Has something changed for the 2016 model year???

I did the same thing each and every time I turned on turn signal on our recent trip to FL.

You are correct for automatic transmissions. Ours is a manual transmission and tows very nicely.

Hopefully FR has fixed the problem when a signal bulb stops (notice I didn't say burned out) working the camera with the non working bulb will always be on.

Wow, what an idea - a manual tranny! I think even DW would go for it since she grew up with a stick shift Bug.
