RE: Towing 2009 jeep Patriot

No, it's not towable. Read the owners manual section entitled: "Recreational Towing"

RE: Cooking question

We rarely cook inside. Electric griddle, Coleman stove, Weber Q100 out on the picnic table takes care of everything.

RE: Ram Engine Oil QUestions

Yeah I missed that 2500 point. You should be running 5w30 only. There is no need to switch back and forth.

RE: Ram Engine Oil QUestions

Use the oil that the Owners Manual recommends. Why do you say it doesn't have the MDS system?

RE: 5th wheel weights vs tongue.

Stick with a TT. The fifth wheel hitch weighs 150-200 pounds. Figure 15-20% for pin weight on a fifth wheel. At the minimum get your truck with a full tank weighed at a scale to see if that door sticker is correct. Don't you mean 1500 to 2000 pounds?

RE: April Florida Gulf coast trip

We make our Easter week Topsail SP reservations exactly 11 month ahead of our visit. This is a s early as is possible. These parks fill up, at least for that week.

RE: 2006 Damon Daybreak 3270 Electrical issues

As stated the front TV and slides are not supposed to operate with the ignition on. Do they work with the key off?

RE: Does Electric brakes breakaway function work in reverse?

There are still two brake shoes which the magnet acts on, pretty much just like any other drum brake system. So there no reason for them not to work like those....

RE: 2014 Dodge Durango

On the door sticker find the GCWR rating. Get the Durango weighed while fully loaded, including the gas, and hitch. Then subtract the Actual weight from the GCWR and you'll know what the max TT weight is. GCWR - Actual loaded weight = What you can tow GVWR - Actual loaded weight = The max payload of the Durango

RE: Google Maps

The road may be closed for weather or construction. This can cause these unusual routings.

RE: Can I take my big truck with me?

Find the MH's GCWR, and have it weighed. Subtract the weight of the MH from the GCWR and that's how much you can tow assuming your hitch supports that amount. The GCWR is generally on the Chassis tag which is commonly found above the driver's area, or on the back of a cabinet door.

RE: Max weight for trailer

Electric brakes are a show stopper. And absolutely required for any trailer over 2000#. Please plan on including those. Check out this towing thread earlier today about a 2014 Jeep Grand Cherokee (the sibling to the Durango)

RE: Backing 5th Wheel Down Straightaway

Go very slow. Use very small inputs into the steering the moment you see the left side of the trailer begin to move.

RE: Max towing for 2014 V6 Jeep Grand Cherokee

I am a Jeep engineer. The 2014 JGC is rated at 6200# towing. You're an engineer. You of all people should know there is a lot more to towing a travel trailer than the tow rating. Have you actually towed a travel trailer that size with said TV? Not on a proving ground, but fully loaded on a trip with hills and wind? That trailer at 4k "dry weight" is more likely over 5k loaded. While I don't doubt for a moment that the GC will tow the trailer safely, personal experience tells me that the closer you get to rated capacities, the less pleasant the overall towing experience is. In this case the OP should plenty of reserve capacity and the towing experience should be pretty decent. Yes I have as a matter of fact! If fact that's my job. I've tested the JGC to much higher weight levels than that in much hotter climates than you can imagine. This is a fine combination of TV and TT. The fullly loaded 5K figure is really still 1200# below the rated towing weight. End of story! Oh, and in case you're one of those who say that you should never exceed 80% of the tow rating, you're wrong. I am done debating. I have said what needed to be said.

RE: Max towing for 2014 V6 Jeep Grand Cherokee

You would likely be jumping from the frying pan into the fire with that change I am a Jeep engineer. The 2014 JGC is rated at 6200# towing. Not sure what (donn0128) is talking about?? Perhaps he had too much coffee this morning. Yes! OP this would make a fine tow vehicle for your TT.

RE: Adding batteries

You want to use your chassis battery and the coach batteries to power the inverter? It's theoretically possible but, it's a bad idea. What happens when you run down the chassis battery? You can't start the MH or the generator.... Why not just add an extension cord at the outlet behind the fridge and power the CPAP with it?
