      That's an interesting article Donut but not really applicable in this case. I don't honestly think anybody is going to buy a setup like mine, but FWIW it's a full class 3 capable tow hitch extension...

      It uses outside air and a dryer unit to clean the air, so I'd wonder if the dryer is bad too since there should never be moisture in those lines to freeze in the first place...

      Fun trick FWIW, turn on the Easy Entry/Exit suspension control (which slams the car down an extra inch), and then after it's lowered hit the 'disable air suspension for service' check-box, and you...

      fwiw it'll never open when you're driving, it just won't allow that. Even when parked, you need to get out and walk near the sensor with the key in your pocket for the kick-sensor to automatically...

      Yup, that's pretty much it, though I'll add it's best to keep it no faster than 75MPH as much over that and the ICE can't turn off nor can the rear axle regenerate any electrical power downhill...

      XC60, the Random Compliment Magnet?
