Hi Don,Don said:Shingles;
Were they towing with the Ridgeline?I will use the weight-distrubuting hitch, and have towed the Airstream Bambi with a full size pick-up in the past.
Really think the Honda will do great.
The transmission doesn't know where the load on the engine is coming from (it could be a full bed and 5 passengers going uphill) so it shifts to the appropriate gear for the load. On a relatively flat surface the RL is usually in fifth gear when towing my folding trailer. Why would you not want it to shift into fifth if it can handle the load?But I would wonder if the automatic transmission would take towing into account and not shift into 5th?
