I know I sound like a broken record but really the KCW crew deserve all the praise they built a fine machine im just trying to keep it happy by putting miles on her. I have been busy trying to figure out this towing thing and just wondering if im going to really mess up my tranny and engine trying to tow 2000lbs trailer across the country........... :-k :-k :-k

You are doing one of the best jobs any past customer has ever done using their Bus!!!! You gotta tow SLOW, like 56, sometimes 43!!!! \:D/ =D> \:D/ =D> \:D/ =D>Gotta always remember that what you are towing always wants to steer and your Bus isn't really all that heavy!!! Smile

I think 2000 pounds is too heavy for any Split! :-k :-k

Driving is fine, but be sure to hit the car wash and do a good cleaning underneath any time you have been on any road that may have been salted. Keep on truckin' !!! \:D/

thanks for all the info, a few more shots roaming around bellingham today. It was 15 degrees but with windchill felt like 4 or 5. so cold. best part of photos is cant tell temp. but this bus does not take a shitty photo. super fun driving around. as for cleaning the bottom every couple months I put her up on the lift and give the bottom a good detailing :-$ :-$ its a little crazy and perhaps overkill but I am just trying to protect my investment. \:D/ \:D/ \:D/

Too much attention is not overkill. It is good common sense ! \:D/
