Does anyone have any experience towing a Flex with a motorhome? Do I need to hook a trickle charge to the battery. Some say not and some say no. Also. does one need to put diodes in line with tail lights to prevent feedback. Any other issues I need to be aware of?

Thanks John

Recreational Towing
Note:
Put your climate control system in recirculated air mode to
prevent exhaust fumes from entering the vehicle. Refer to the
Climate
Control
chapter.
Follow these guidelines for your specific powertrain combination to tow
your vehicle for personal travel (such as behind a motor home or a
truck). These guidelines are designed to prevent damage to your vehicle
after it is hooked-up to the RV or tow dolly.
Front-wheel drive (FWD) vehicles can be towed with all four wheels on
the ground or with the front wheels off the ground by using a tow dolly.
If you are using a tow dolly follow the instructions specified by the
equipment provider. If you are towing with all four wheels on the ground,
refer to the towing instructions found at the end of this section.
All-wheel drive (AWD) vehicles can be towed with all four wheels on the
ground or with all four wheels off the ground using a vehicle transport
trailer. Do not tow your AWD vehicle with the front wheels off the
ground (by using a tow dolly) and the rear wheels on the ground; this
will cause damage to your AWD system. If you are using a vehicle
transport trailer, follow the instruction specified by the equipment
provider. If you are towing with all four wheels on the ground, refer to
the towing instructions found at the end of this section.

 

If you tow your vehicle with all four wheels on the ground:
Tow only in the forward direction.
Release the parking brake.
Place the transmission in N (Neutral).
Do not exceed 65 mph (105 km/h).
Start the engine and allow it to run for five minutes at the beginning
of each day and every six hours thereafter. With the engine running
and your foot on the brake, shift into D (Drive) and then into R
(Reverse) before shifting back into N (Neutral).

 

 

Nothing about lights in the manual, so I would not mess with them since majority of the electrical system is tied into the computer at some point, including the lights,
