I have a quick question for those of you who towed a trailer with your PF...
I'm completely new to towing, just got our first travel trailer yesterday and was wondering if what i have experienced while towing it home is normal...
Without the trailer my PF is running below 2000RPM at 110 -120 km/h, (70-75 mph) but yesterday when I was towing the trailer it was running well above 3000 RMP at 100 - 110 km/h...
I do have weight distribution hitch as well as sway controller, but I had a feeling that the car was working very hard...again, maybe it's because I have never towed anything before in my life
I did drive all the way with the tow mode turned on but i'm not sure if that would make any difference.
Also the gas consumption was CRAZY !!! I think it was way over 20L/100km (~11mpg)
As for the trailer it is well below the max towing capacity of the PF with the following details:
Dry Weight (lbs/kg) 2580 / 1170.3
Payload Capacity (lbs/kgs) 920 / 417.3
GVWR (lbs/kgs) 3500 / 1587.6
So what do you guys say... is it normal or should I get my car checked or any other ideas/pointers/advice???
