5 posts in this topic

not very well i would assume, short wheel base and v6.

i had a supercharged nissan xterra and pulling a 6x12 would make me pull hairs out, it is not a good idea unless your pulling a small utility trailer.

Whatever route you choose don't use those universal tow wiring kits on the the Murano. You will fry the BCM(body control unit) and the lighting wires. It will be spendy after it fries. Go buy the dealer wiring kit. I have seen several customers that come in and tow with their Murano. Most of them only tow around 3000 lbs max.You don't want to tow more than that.

Honda, thanks for the tip on the wiring. The Murano is rated for 3500 lbs and I would estimate my tin rig to be about 2500 lbs, so I think it would be fine, I just wanted to see if anyone else towed with one and had any opinions.

it has a CVT tranny, which would really make me question how well that belt would hold up to towing.

It also isnt rated for alot of torque. My wife wanted one and we went out and test drove a couple. The 15-16 MPG in town was not what we expected and not much greater for HWY travel. Its worse than my 4x4 truck in town.

      that's the spot I would go also. I tried there once this year, not much luck, but I did mark many fish.

      I have a couple of those covers.  Not sure what they are good for.

      For all you pan fish lovers, check out this beautiful pumpkin seed I found guarding the bed while I was out bass fishing. Couldn't help but get some video of this beaut! Enjoy!

      My live well has an adjustable shut off valve in side for filling and running fresh water. If I don't turn it down to a tickle when I have fish in it, it will over flow into the boat once full because the pump is pumping faster then the overflow can keep up.  Not sure if you have one of them in yours?  I've even had a few big eyes flipping around in there hit the valve open more.

      I believe minnows are a class of fish that remain small throughout their lives. They are part of the food chain and because of their small size we take advantage of their position in the ecosystem and use them for bait. There are exceptions of course but, as an example, for the most part adult golden shiners will typically grow to about 3" - 5" long. Adult fathead minnows will be 2" - 3" long typically.

      If the hoses or hose connections are not leaking check : Live well intake connection, make sure that it is screwed on tight into the transom and that it is sealing. Could be live well splash over also if you are in rough water, but probably not with your type of leak. It may still be leaking rivets as they may not leak unless you put a lot of water inside of the boat. It does sound like you have a bad connection in one of your live well connections! Cliff
