As a new owner of a 1999 ML430 I am looking forward to membership of the group.The car has been exchanged for a F150 pickup for towing purposes ,having been persuaded that it is suitable for towing a closed trailer at 5000 lbs containing showcars.
Unfortunately my first experience is with trailer brake control fitting and it appears that Mercedes did not make provision for the requirements for American trailers (manual emergency operation requiring a control unit in reach of the driver) This will drive me to use a Prodigy RF unit.
Hope to get tips from the Forum to maximise ownership enjoyment and minimise cost.
