Of the many car driving tips that might be offered, this one isn't intuitive - accelerate through curves to gain better traction. Look at the trips you take, what type of RV sites you park in, and where you drive to determine if towing a car behind your RV is the right setup for your travels. Make sure it is rated to haul the weight of the vehicle and the trailer used to haul it. Automatic vehicle location (AVL) systems are sometimes used to help the dispatch center staff determine the closest tow truck.

With a partner to visually confirm, check that the trailer's running lights, brake lights, turn signals, and hazard lights are all working in correlation with the tow vehicle. Ensure the trailer and both vehicles are on a flat, even surface. This is not the case when towing a trailer, as its brakes are synchronised with those of the towing car.
