Well, we got the Tekonsha RF installed on the trailer and brought it back from Welland today. It was a bit of a PITA to get set up and paired with the controller, and it does have to be installed exactly as per the video, on the frame. But once we got the hand held talking to the unit, it was all good - got the settings right in a decommissioned Canadian Tire parking lot, and it was all smooth sailing back to the city. Mad props to Denis at Seaway RV! for getting us set up, and for caulking the belly band - for the first time, no must smell from small leaks
over the winter.
We are very happy with the new car as a tug. The side views on the Santa Fe XL are big enough so that no tow mirror need be added. It's all good. See you at eggfest and bolerama!
