Lamp out bypass and other towing conveniences.

The most painful thing about towing with the Y in Texas heat is having to sit on the ground hitching and unhitching ... Especially in route to supercharge.

I have a trailer with upgraded LED lights that cause the Y to think there is a wiring issue and non of the 7 pin bypasses will fit that super tiny hitch hole. So I bought a 3 ft extension so I can place an adapter between the car and trailer.

The rivian looks SO nice as the whole hitch area just "opens up". Would love an after market bumber cover to do the same on the Y and give a good 1+ inch clearance around the hitch.

What have you done to make it easier to hitch and unhitch?
