I would imagine an EV would be a great car to tow behind an RV. If you are camping, you often will have electricity available to charge the EV.
Yep! That's the whole deal there buddy! I used to tow the imiev, now tow the much longer range Bolt. I had to tow the Mitsubishi backwards on the dolly, since it is rear wheel drive.
be sure to disconnect the negative battery terminal before you start towing. Even if it's turned off, the Bolt will sense the rear wheels turning and the fact that the vehicle isn't level, and it will apply the parking brakes.
Thanks for the advice, but I'm already aware. The Vehicle was towed from Texas to Tennessee immediately after I purchased it.
I have been a daily EV forum reader since 2008 (first Volt, then i-miev, now Bolt), and had already read (and saw his video) about the other owner's experience. So fortunately I was prepared. I have actually installed a negative cut-off switch. So the procedure no longer requires a wrench.
Any motorhome owner that undertakes towing a vehicle should read up on the vehicle to be towed (the "toad") and make sure that they understand the precautions that are necessary for a safe tow on their particular vehicle. Many toad vehicles require special procedures. The Bolt is no different in this regard. But for anyone reading this that may be considering the same type of usage "seannelson" is correct. Once loaded and secured on the tow dolly, make sure that the parking brake is off. Power down the vehicle and disconnect the negative cable on the 12 Volt battery so that the logic will not engage the parking brake while in transit. Failure to follow this procedure would likely result in serious damage and/or fire.
And shame on GM for not including this information in the owner's manual. There is a section in the manual devoted to RV towing, and this procedure is not in the manual. I have stated in another post on this forum that GM should include, in a future software upgrade, a menu setting for "RV mode" that disables the auto parking brake.
I am planning an RV trip in October and will try to remember to document and photograph all the procedures so that I can make an original post on this topic. As for now, methinks I have taken this thread way off topic!
