Hi Everyone. Well, after 15 years the RV-Dreams Community Forum is coming to an end. Since it began in August 2005, we've had 58 Million page views, 124,000 posts, and we've spent about $15,000 to keep this valuable resource for RVers free and open. But since we are now off the road and have settled down for the next chapter of our lives, we are taking the Forum down effective June 30, 2021. It has been a tough decision, but it is now time.

We want to thank all of our members for their participation and input over the years, and we want to especially thank those that have acted as Moderators for us during our amazing journey living and traveling in our RV and growing the RV-Dreams Family. We will be forever proud to have been founders of this Forum and to have been supported by such a wonderful community. Thank you all!!

Towing a 2008 Ford F150 with a 5 speed manual..

A couple of months ago I went to the Remco web site and it said I could tow the above-mentioned vehicle.  Well today I decided  to confirm that with the Ford owner's manual and it said I couldn't.  Does anyone know why by any chance.  I can understand why I can't tow an automatic due to lubrication issues without the pump turning, but a manual typically uses splash lubrication so that shouldn't be the issue.   I'm thinking it may be the steering wheel locking mechanism and running the battery down with the ignition on.  In that case I'll simply get a battery disconnect.  Any one have any ideas?
