    It was slightly scary, that wind! I have a 27 year old retiree do-it-all appaloosa, and did eventing, dressage, games, tons of trail riding...he has also had an illustrious polocrosse career with the pony club kids. I also had a young TB for dressage and eventing until I finally burned out after 25 years of spending all my free time and money on horse stuff. I am really enjoying my second hobby "career" now doing photography, hiking, camping, etc.

    I received a message that you were looking for information on adding brake controller wiring to a RAV4. I've done this, as well as adding a charge line from the battery to the 7 pin hitch connector. I pretty much followed this web page. I used #10 wire for the charge line & #12 for the brake line. both are wired through circuit breakers. It took a full day to do the project - much of the time was spent finding a place for a 50 amp fuse in the engine compartment & removing the driver's side trim for the run between the front & rear of the vehicle. I also added a isolation relay in the jack storage area so the charge line would be shut off when ever the ignition of the RAV4 was off. The sense wire for the relay was powered by the 12V outlet in the same compartment. Any further questions, feel free to contact me.

    No problem Laura, Just a good thing to get done, eventually Im sure it would mess with the suspension. Im thinkin about dropping down to 1 30lb fiberglass composite tank and save 40lbs tongue weight.

    Well yeah wireing isn't included in the tow package... I installed my hitch and wires off of ebay and then when I was going for a real trailer and needed break controller and a 7 pin connector that cost me $250 at a local trailer place. Dont forget your gonna need air bags to tow something as tongue heavy as your casita 17... Best of luck
