We're doing a camping trip out to Lake Mead this August, and after reserving a houseboat and wakeboard boat, my cousin who is in charge of organizing things, got us 2 waverunners for the weekend as well The catch is, unlike the houseboat and wakeboard boat, the skis are here in OC, meaning I'm taking my truck because I'm now the only person in my extended family who owns anything that can tow. (persians...don't ask).
Never towed anything in my life. I've only helped my dad back up our old camper in the Suburban a few times, other than that, no experience.
Trip is roughly 300 miles, consisting of mostly flat desert with several sections of gradual elevation change, including one downhill grade that can get a little hairy for semi trucks, and one uphill grade but I'm not worried about that. I know I'll probably drop to 11-12mpg with my 33" tires...prepared for that.
I'm looking for some tips and tricks for driving on the interstate, turns, and most importantly, the best drive mode (2hi, 4hi, 4lo?) to get in and out of the boat launch at the lake's marina...and can I do this without a diff breather mod??
I'm spending next weekend relocating my 7-pin connector after shredding it to pieces out at Ocotillo Wells last month...Thanks again
