I've read over the years about needing to hook a bungee cord between the steering wheel and the driver's seat rail to keep the steering from oscillating lock-to-lock while being towed behind a motorhome. I wonder if this applies to the 2016 and later cars. Anyone with experience? I think the newer cars have front wheels that track directly in front of the rears, and the wheelbase is wider, which might affect how the car tows behind a motorhome. I also wonder if the steering oscillation occurred behind both class A and class C motorhomes. When one turns in a class C, the tail of the motorhome swings in the opposite direction at slow speeds (watch out for gas pumps). There is a minimal opposite swing in the class A, so there may be less of a side load on the front wheels of the 453. I'm asking because I am having my 453 modified to allow flat towing, and I will be doing this in the next few days. I suppose it couldn't hurt to attach a bungee to the steering wheel, but again, is it needed?
