We are in Bullhead City heading home and our tow haul quit working. Anyone know of a good reasonable repair shop in Bullhead City so we can get home? Thanks for any information

My tow/haul isn't required with my set up. If my tow/haul went out, I would drive home without it. For me, it's most beneficial on steeper down grades, and I would just be a little more careful.

We have used the Chevrolet dealer there several times and ALWAYS had good service. They will work with you, as a traveler and get you on your way quickly.

Mine is not required either. I have to initiate it to turn it on.
On the highway all mine does is eliminate 6th gear. In town is changes where the transmission shifts.
Works fine without it.

Check the fuses, there might be something else on the same fuse and blew the fuse.

I've accidently driven without my tow/haul on, sometimes for a fairly long period of time. Nothing really happened as a result. You might try to drive home without it.

Thanks for the replies-we will take a chance and drive home carefully down the steep hills and get it fixed at home.
