Towing a caravan..

Hi people,

Wondering if anyone can help me.. So I have recently purchased a caravan and have had a tow bar and electric brakes put on my pathfinder 2015. Only problem is the PF sits so low to the road.. Now Nissan Australia have installed the tow bar and its sitting down low.. Has anyone changed it around the opposite way to sit up higher? And also does anyone know how to turn the reverse sensors off whilst reversing so it stop beeping non stop? Thanks everyone obviously the pic below is me inserting the tow bar the opposite way than what it's meant to be..

Please help..

On the steering wheel, press the button with the boxes on it on the left side top. That cancels the alarm. It will also cancel any warnings on your screen (ie. oil change due)

You probably need something like this:

Google "adjustable hitch receiver" and you'll find all sorts of possibilities.

Back when I towed with my Sienna, I did switch the ball and turned the ball mount 180 degrees to gain a couple of inches.

The hitch bars are meant to be used in either direction. I had one once I was constantly flipping over as I swapped it from 2 different vehicles. looks like yours is the same as mine was....2" drop or 1"rise. I finally bought a 2nd one to save the time of swapping it around all the time.

location...Western Washington (state not district)
Other vehicles
2010 Jetta diesel....everyday commuter
2001 suburban...RV vehicle
'56 Buick bought new, pulled out back field and rebuilt early '90s
'46 Luscombe... RIP...looking for replacement
