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.

      "Kelly looks like you need an extension for your dock."   But I don't think I have to worry about any boats hitting it.    It should be an interesting Opener.

      A truck broke through Birch Lake the other day in like 20fow, an ATV broke through Prairie Lake and a man lost his life. The ice is deteriorating RAPIDLY. There will be some ice chunks, but I firmly believe there will be more open water than ice by May 12.  Temps up here are forecasted near 70 for a few days next week.

      Looking at the beach cam there is a lot of ice on shore. Don't know how far that goes into the water though.  Last week in April- first week in May is when I come down to seine.

      Well you learn something new every day! I always thought it was mad made. Makes sense now why it formed now.

      Drove through last week and noticed the ditches didn't have much water compared to other years. Kelly looks like you need an extension for your dock.

      I hung it up last Saturday. Could have gone on Sunday but choose to spend time with my Grandson instead. Need to meet up with the guys over in central Mn. one of these days.

      I don't know if Lucas has a marine gear oil.   AMSOIL Synthetic Marine Gear Lube is what I pick. I like Mobil 1in my cars and trucks but again I think your going to want to go with an oil formulated for marine use.   The NMMA FC-W rating.   Four Stroke Cycle Water Cooled.

      Just for fiun I went to wunderground.com and looked at the weekly averages for 2014, 2016, and 2018 starting the beginning of march.  2014--May 13 ice out 5  25 20 14 29 38 29 39 39 44 44 56 2016-April 25 17 38 34 30 34 25 43 47 41 52 46 49 60 2018-??? 21 24 24 26 17 26 33.... Looks like we are behind 2014 with respect to getting average temp above 32 if that is significant, although the weeks don't line up exactly and we are way behind 2016 .

      Just talked to my neighbor up at the lake and he said one of SunkedAgain's neighbors in Black Bay couldn't get to his place going across the Partridge River-he said he almost broke thru the ice!!  I'm down a ways toward Wakemup from the narrow part going into the bay, but we had over 30" last wknd.  Looking good for some open water to fish down my way by the opener!
