    Quick question - does the X have to be in towing mode when using a bike rack ? Having never had a bike rack before, I'm not sure what to do.
    Thanks !

    The short answer is no. Use mine all the time wo TM. The rear sensors go nuts, but only in reverse.

    Ah. Thanks ! The sensors did go nuts and I assumed that meant I had to put it in trailer mode

    You do need to be in tow mode if your bike rack has lights. Lights don't work unless in tow mode :( Stupid idea. Lights should work regardless.
