Believe me, I feel your pain. I have the Pathfinder doing 17 to 19, WITHOUT
a trailer.
BTW, anyone out there know much about the Nissan Pathfinder? I know the
owners manual mentions a secondary book, with towing procedures for the PF.
I went to the dealership, who would be glad as hell to SELL me a book, that
I feel *should* have been included in the sale.
I posted to the Nissan Pathfinder list, asking for specifics, so I don't
ruin the transmission, but have not received any information. Any Nissan
gurus out there??
BTW, I am trailering our car as well. Not because my back can't take it, but
because I want to bring along some jet ski's to play on the lake. Anyone
interested in joining me for an early morning ride or two, bring some swim
