In Topic: Why Can't You Fit Towbars To Econetic Focus?

In this case braked means the towed trailer regardless of what form this takes must have overrun brakes, what happens is when you apply the car brakes the inertia of the towed trailer pushes on the coupling head compressing a spring or damper and applies the trailer brakes via cables or rod and cables.
Above 750kg this is a legal requirment. when towing over 3500kg the brakes must be fully hydraulic operated from the towing vehicle, then above another weight the brakes must be operated by air

If you want to know what or if your vehicle can tow you look at your registration document (used to be V5) and it tels you.
This is difinitive, if it dosn't say you can not tow legaly.

If your tyre is loosing pressure when parked up weather on a curb or not you have a puncture eather in the tyre or loosing pressure on the tyre/wheel rim seal. Forget all the other stuff about nitrogen.

While tyre pressures will be more constant using nitrogen as it less affected by atmospheric conditions and temperature, nitrogen won't stay in a tyre any better than air if it's pressure on the tyre that is forcing the air out... :rolleyes:

Cheers
