Also, what do you do to the Cmax when towing, turn on the electronic ignition , put in neutral and go? Do you stop and run the engine occasionally.
Anybody here a member of a CMax forum?
We towed our CMax hybrid a little over 13K miles with NO problems from early 2013 to Oct. 2016.
Here's a link to a CMax hybrid forum/thread about setting up your hybrid/energi. Its a long thread with lots of info,
some very good.

To avoid a lot of the early problems.
I installed a charge wire from the mh to keep the 12v battery charged,
used a Blue Ox Patriot brake system (works on hybrids), Blue Ox baseplate with a Roadmaster tow bar
and installed extra lights in the CMax taillights (plenty of room) NO cutting the Cmax wires.
Hopefully the OP will be able to charge the energi off of a 15amp outlet at the power pole.
