Battery drainage while towing
.... Had no battery drainage problems. I've always towed Honda products (CRV, Odyessy) and never had a problem. Could take some photos if needed.
Just received my September MotorHome magazine and it contained a letter from American Honda concerning Towing an MDX behind a motorhome. I thought removal of a fuse was only required on Navi equipped MDX"s but removal on non-Navi is required also as stated by American Honda as follows:
"To prevent battery discharge during motorhome towing, which requires that the ignition switch be in the Accessory position, the No. 9 fuse (also labeled Front Accessory Socket) in the passenger-side interior fuse box should be removed. This fuse powers the audio system, cigarette lighter, accessory sockets, multi-information display unit, Navigation display unit, rear ceiling light and rear map lights; it does not power the audio or Navi system memory, so no resetting of radio stations, etc. will be required. The fuse can be reached through a small access door on the passenger-side kick panel.
"This fuse should be removed even in a non-Navigation -system car, in order to deactivate the multi-information display. If an MDX customer requests any additional information, they should contact Acura Client Services at (800) 382-2238"
