It's my pleasure. Unfortunately, Toyota Carlsbad may have lost their license to work on the Tesla bits of the 2012-2014 RAV4 EV.

Re: ALL POSTS - 12-volt battery replacement

12 volt battery issues remain the NUMBER ONE issue with owners of the RAV4 EV.

Re: What are the towing capabilities with the Rav EV?

The number one limit to towing is SAFETY. Generally speaking, any trailer weight that when combined with the actual vehicle weight does not exceed the overall maximum gross vehicle weight should be ok without trailer brakes. The 2012-2014 Toyota RAV4 EV has a maximum gross weight limit of 5005 pound...
