Greetings! This Friday will be my first time towing with my 2013 LR4 HD. I installed the British Atlantic wiring harness and had the LR4 programed while I was having something else done at an indy shop here in Denver. I also verified the programming with my GAP tool. Anything else I should do? I'm towing my brother-in-law's pop-up camper.

Thanks,

Parker

What shop did you use? Just curious. I mean the only thing I'd do since it's your first time is just to connect the trailer and triple check all lights and brake lights are operating. My small trailer has LED lighting and apparently there's not enough resistance there to trigger the truck to turn off the PDC so that's annoying.

yep, my newer LED boat trailer didn't pull enough current to trip the LR4 into putting the tow dashboard light on. It still towed it just fine.
correct. it will still tow just fine. the main thing it did for me was disable to back up sensors when the trailer is attached.
