Hopefully, someone can help me here. We're planning to do a houseboat vacation this summer on Lake Ouachita and I'm planning to take my boat. I was wondering if there is anything different I need to do in order to tow a long distance.
We'll be towing from Houston to Lake Ouachita, which is about 450 miles. I have a 06 Tige 24v (4350?) and we used my LR3 all of 2012 to tow the boat almost every weekend to the lake (1hr one way). It tows all of our gear and people just fine on this trip, but I know things change when you go from a 80 mile trip to 450.
I know my gas mileage is going to be ugly (probably 10mpg), but I am trying to make sure I have all my bases covered.
