What do I need to tow with the Cayenne?

Recommended Posts

I have a TT with the tow hitch. What do I need to tow? I need to get a trailer to tow a large lawnmower (though I may just get a car trailer so I can use it for both).

What's needed to actually tow? I searched but didn't find any specifics. I think some sort of adapter is needed ?

Here is what I've heard 3rd hand...

You will need the ball that fits your trailer.

It also has a connection for the trailer brakes and it has left and right combo brake and signal lights like on most trailers. Should work perfectly for any standard trailer.

and someone else told me that you will need a plug adapter for your trailer wiring. You will also need a male plug for the brake controller. Supposedly dealers have these.

On the driver side, right above the brake pedal, remove a screw and then remove the black plastic cover. On the left side, you'll find a 4 wire plug which is for the brake controller.

pin 1 is ground

pin 2 is permanent power

pin 3 is the break signal for the controller

pin 4 is the break output (goes to the tow bar socket)

Most hitch shops or your dealer should be able to take it from there.

I'll try to get more (and better) info if I can...

Let me know if you can get your hands on this booklet which is given to the mechanics at one of the 3 training schools in the US. Ok, I had my hands on 3 of them over the past few months but it cannot be ordered from the parts dept at my dealer as the part number does not exist for customers, and we may have to wait until it is on a cd.
