Hi Stoneman, welcome to Precept ownership. Thank for your sharing your experiences. I see you are signed in on the Precept Owners Group.
Glad to have you on board.

We are towing a 2014 Ford Fusion Hybrid with BlueOx and the SMI Duo "Stay-in-Play". Very happy with the Blue Ox components and the way the Precept handles. Having an issue with the Duo. Keeps blowing a fuse. Still working on this with the installation group.

Jacobsnc, any issues with your "Stay-in-Play"?

We are having our Blue Ox base plate installed on my Escape tomorrow. Will use the Blue Ox Aventa tow bar and the Break Buddy Vantage on our 31UL. We will tow for the first time on Memorial Day week end. I'll report the experience.

It probably goes without saying...........BUT, make sure any time you tow a vehicle, the alignment on the ''toad'' is set correctly. An out of alignment toad really affects the handling of the RV.
Just my 2c worth.
Bob....Jacobsnc...sounds like great setups.

OK, we are in our 2nd Campsite since getting the Precept rigged to tow the Equinox. Everything is working fine. This Blue Ox stuff is really quality stuff. Wife dropped the # 32 fuse down the middle lining so as soon as I fish it out with my magnet, we'll be good to go.

HAPPY, HAPPY. Sounds like a spare #32 fuse might be needed, huh.
Thanks for the update. Hope it has dried out where you are Bob. We are finally getting some sun and boy is it nice to see.

Did a 1305 mile trip towing the jeep with the 35un. No issues at all.

I also have a blue Ox and am buying a precept 35 un. It is higher off the ground than my class C. Will it be fine?
