Is the 2010 chevy 1500 4x4 crewcab silverado towable with all 4 wheels on the ground behind a motorhome?


Only if you remove the rear drive shaft. Otherwise, even with the transfer case in neutral the rear tires will still spin the transmission.

Is the lancer towable behind moterhome


No vehicle is really towable with all four wheels on the surface. It is best to have a front wheel dolly trailer that the front wheels set on strapped down to tow by. The axles are freely moving if the tires are all on the surface creating a harsh wear to the transmission. The transmission is a hydralic pump as you may know & if the axles are moving for a long distance some parts inside the transmission will be fluxuating as you travel. Many vehicle end up at a transmission shop where I am at with some sort of drivability problem since they have been towed for a long distance. Usually inside your owns manual they will have a section on towing. I would read that section if you have the manual

Can I tow a 2003 Suzuki LX7 with an automatic transmission?


Hi,

Only the 4WD version is 'flat towable' - if yours is the front wheel drive version you will need a dolly as special equipment to prevent damage occuring to the transmission. Towing Auto vehicles is not really advisable in my opinion and unless it is specifically stated in the specification of the manufacturers handbook it is best avoided.

However you may want to check out this link which provides a list of towable pickups and SUVs that is updated each year. You can also find their list of towable vehicles from previous years there as well. These are vehicles that are factory approved by their manufacturers for towing behind a motorhome. Some vehicles such as the XL-7 require special procedures which must be followed, including speed and distance limitations.

For example, the 4WD version of the XL-7 requires special care to be taken every 200 miles in order to avoid the potential of transmission damage.

See link for more info


Hope this helps. Thanks for using FixYa.

Can 2008 saturn astra be dinghy towed(4 wheels down)behind an RV?


You can do it if you really wanted to. You'll need to make sure the steering wheel is secured and that the wheels are perfectly straight or you will wreck the front tires. You will be adding unneeded mileage onto the the car by having the front wheels turning. would be better and less costly overall to get trailer that you can put the front end up on.

Dinghy Towing


Yes, depending on the year of the vehicle. Roadmaster (800-669-9690) will give you all the info you need for the tow bar and brackets for the car. Remco (800-228-2481) will give you all the info you need to make the car towable. It will take a lube pump for the transmission- model LP-7. Remco does not answer email inquiries,but they are very good on the phone. I bought all of the gear through Roadmaster at the FMCA meeting in Indio in January, so I would recommend your start with a call to Roadmaster. Be advised that the 2010 Lexus RX-350 CANNOT be made towable. The 2007-2009 can be. Also be advised that, if you do this, it will void your warranty- at least as far as the transmission is concerned. The local Lexus dealer told me it would not affect the warranty on other parts of the car. Good luck
