What is the Touareg rated at for towing?

New tow rig hooked up. My wife still prefers the F150 for backing the trailer down the ramp. I still can't figure out how to disable the seat shaker warning for objects that are too close because it senses the trailer and in reverse it keeps vibrating the drivers seat to warn you that you are going to hit something. To many bells and whistles for my taste.

The Tow/Hull button does not cancel that feature?

In my Ram you just turn off the rear parking sensors with the push of a button.

Ha, your right, thanks for the tip. I just haven't taken the time to go through all these features. I have to say the 6.2L is a beast
