I posted earlier we took my wifes RTS to get C.B. installed {did not come in}and to have short to trailer module & reverse actuator looked at, It was repaired quickly ,module was BAD, grounded , no short in wiring found after seeing was a very basic plug and play almost no way to pinch wiring, thankfully dealer had another hitch to rob module from, they are still waiting on a blue trailer. Pulled the trailer the three hours back seems fine now.Note: even when module failed and blew fuse still had brake lights, no running or turn signals and assume trailer was not being recognized by bike,not issue bike is std. trans.Our best friend picked her new RTS Wed. an Auto. clutch elec. shift seems to be excellent clutch management ,very smooth shifting and perfect takeoffs,system seems flawless.

good to hear you made it home with out turn signals pulling a trailer. I ordered the BRP Spyder RT2010 manual in CD format, and tried it out looking up what a reverse actuator was, with in seconds it went to the page talking about how to fix or replace. Wow technology!

I have an SE5 and love it, gonna get the trailer probably,but gotta wait and see if I will be hauling on trips. Was there any issues when passing Semi's, with out trailer I am ok, did you notice anything pulling or is it solid too?

Trailer pulling

No issue passing anytime ,anywhere, I ride a 2007 Yamaha venture and after following my wife for 3,000mi. now am impressed with the power the RTS has, almost identical h.p. and torque as mine and athe additional gearing carries the wide frontal area fine, am not sure I understand the fuel mileage I get 42-44mpg every tank so far with 60,000mi. now, I would have thought 998 cc could do better, coming home Sat. she did get 29.4 mpg pulling the trailer with about 100# in it so seems to be slightly improving. It would not matter if 15mpg. she likes it so much better than her previous two Goldwing Trikes. Trailer is first rate const. coilovers so much better than anything else out there. The only trailers we own go behind bikes not under them I am now pulling our Bunkhouse camper since she now has her cargo trailer, as I posted earlier she will be a test for thr RTS she rides approx. 25,000mi. per year myself 33,000mi. per yr.
