Bought a 08 Outlook that still has all the tow mounts and the plug on the front for towing behind a motor coach. The question is I found a toggle switch under the glove box side of the car that is not factory . What I need to know is it part of the towing on the car ,I flipped it and nothing happened but sure would like to know what is for ????

I tow an '09 Saturn outlook and have to pull a 50 amp fuse in the box under the hood to keep the battery from dieing during towing. To avoid having to open the fuse box and pull the fuse under the hood, I added a switch. My switch is under the hood, not under the glove box. If you throw my switch, major functions are disabled.

Check your owners manual under towing to see which fuse(s) have to be disabled for your vehicle and that is probably what the switch deactivates. The fact that you see no change probably means the previous owner disconnected it. I will do that if I sell mine.

Thanks saturn09, I will look at it a little more this weekend, there is also a large red wire disconnected close to the battery. Must be part of the towing. How hard is it to remove the tow hook ups and the plug from the front. Looks like alot of the front would have to be pulled off just to get to them.Cant really notice them and just might leave them on.

It depends on the brand of tow base plate that was installed. Mine is a Blue OX and it took me about 8 hours to install - I had to remove the front fascia to install. Here is a link to the Blue OX base plate - just click on the installation instruction manual to get an idea of what would be involved.

If it is some other brand, you can probably find that instruction manual on the internet. I will probably just leave mine on when I stop towing.

Yep thats the one. Think i will just leave it on there . My buddy has the part that goes from the pins to the RV, who knows may come in handy one day. Might trade the fifthwheel in on a coach one day . Thanks for the help..
