Driving tips while towing
¤ Please first read and note the introductory information and heed the WARNINGS .
Towing requires some experience, especially when using a tow rope. Both drivers must be familiar
with the techniques required for towing. Inexperienced drivers should not try to tow a vehicle or to
drive a vehicle that is being towed.
Do not pull too hard with the towing vehicle, and avoid jerking the tow rope. When towing on an
unpaved road, there is always a risk of overloading and damaging the attachment points.
If your vehicle is being towed, it can still signal turns even if the emergency flashers are activated, as
long as the ignition is switched on. Use the turn signal in the normal way. The emergency flashers go
off as long as the turn signal is blinking. As soon as the turn signal lever returns to its neutral position,
the emergency flashers are automatically activated again.
As the driver of the vehicle being towed:
x If your vehicle is the one being towed, the ignition switch must be switched on to keep the steering
wheel from locking. Also make sure that the turn signals, horn, windshield wipers, and windshield
washers work properly.
x Since power steering does not work when the engine is switched off, more effort is needed t soteer
x Since the brake booster also does not work when the engine is stopped, you will need to press
harder on the brake pedal to slow down or stop. Do not hit the towing vehicle.
x Read and heed the information and WARNING iSn the towing vehicle's owner's manual.
