Picked up new 197 haven't had much time to play with it, but have a question I was hoping someone could answer. When folding town do you fold it forward or to the back? When I folded to the back it seems like it is resting on windshield frame, which can't be good. When I folded it forward it was going to hit the tower mirror arm. So I just put a 2x4 under it, as someone had suggested here a while ago. Once in garage there is not enough height for me to try different ways to fold. Thanks for any help.

You have the mini tower correct? If so, forward.....just pop the mirror off.

Thanks. That's what I thought, just didn't have too much time to play. What does the tower rest against at that point? Must be the bow grab handles?

Here is a pic of the same way that the mini folds, this is a full 04style tower

Putting foam pipe insulation on the rails in the open bow is a convenient cushion for storage instead of wedging the towels in there like the picture.
