RE: Suggest brake system for 2015 Wrangler Unlimited

I appreciate the responses (keep 'em coming!). Some feedback: ReadyBrake/ReadyBrute -- Quite interesting, but every towing/RV shop I've contacted has either refused to install this, or wants huge $$ and won't warranty the work. They say it's horribly difficult to install and seems impossible to have reliable performance...different braking force when turning, or wheel locking, or no braking, etc. Sliding the ready brake into your receiver is horribly difficult? It took me longer to route the cable back to the brake pedal. Been towing my 02 Jeep TJ for over 30,000 miles with no problem. Have the ready brake, Roadmaster all terrain towbar connected to my Jeep custom steel bumper. In the process of having Demco baseplate and a cable for the ready brake installed on wife's 05 Liberty so we can tow that also.

Previously owned a Garmin Nuvi 680. It served us well on a cross country trip in 2008. No longer working and we need to purchase a new GPS for another long trip to Alaska and would like some imput as to which GPS for RV's people recommend. We are considering the Garmin 760LMT or one from Rand McNally. We have a 40 foot diesel pusher. NOT TOMTOM! Why not?????? Had a Tom Tom 1535 and a Garmin Nuvi side by side in my Jeep. Tom Tom traffic was better. directions more accurate, and the Tom Tom updates info weekly. After a week got rid of the Garmin.

RE: watkins glenn nascar race

There's a nice RV park at the bottom of the lake! Sorry I can't recall its name, but we found it in the Trailer Life book. Clute Park

RE: Update on Nashville Officer killed by Motorhome

All they need to do is revoke his driver's license to get him off the road and find him guilty of careless driving. No need for jail time. Set probation to insure he doesn't get behind the wheel again and then let the civil courts determine the financial punishment and restitution for the officer's family. Do you have any idea how many people with revoked/suspended licenses are on the road? Unless they commit another offense, you'll never know if they have a license or not. Revocation/suspension does nothing to keep them off the road.

RE: Show Your Age!

I was just thinking about this the other day, not a car thing but it is "showing your age". When I was a kid you use to hear the sonic boom from jets breaking the sound barrier all the time. I probably haven't heard that in 50 years. I'm sure in some locales, due to special circumstances, folks may still hear it from time to time. But when I was a kid it was pretty common. When I was young, I used to see the Navy Blimps from Lakehurst, NJ, headed out on Submarine Patrol and returning later on. We used to wave to the crews! I lived on Staten Island at the time.... oh yeah, I remember the Searchlights searching the sky for enemy planes every night. Don't remember the searchlights, but do remember going out a night with my uncle to listen for planes in the mid 50's.

RE: GPS for the Motor Home?

TomTom golive 1535TM, has lifetime traffic and maps plus the ability to make corrections that are uploaded and then downloaded to everybody else on a daily basis.You can also send them new roads, etc. and once they verify the change it gets sent out to everyone. I know because I've added a new road in my area.

RE: Dash Cams

Just got a G1WH and have tried it for one day so far. Great HD video. Have it set to save file every 3 minutes but may extend that to 10 minutes. Don't see need for GPS on it, if there's an accident, ther will be sufficient police documentation covering the location that the GPS won't add anything.

RE: Can you back up with a toad 4 down

As long as MH and Jeep are straight, I have backed up up to 10 feet at a pace slower than I walk.( In reverse, at idle, foot on brake) If anything is at an angle, won't even try it

RE: Driver of MH indicted in death of Police Officer

We can`t comment on this with all the facts! There had to be more to the story than what was posted. I don`t believe any normal person would try and squeeze a large vehicle between people and equipment on purpose! Yes he hit and killed someone, but if it wasn`t intentional then it was an accident and he shouldn`t be charged criminally! There was quite a thread on this when it happened back in May. He claimed a blind curve. Just last month drove that section of 65 south from Nashville to Birmingham and didn't feel there were any blind curves @ 62mph.

RE: James Island County Park, Charleston SC places to eat/see

Try Bowen's Island Seafood. IT's on the right going towards Folly Beach on Folly RD. There is a sign and then drive out to the end of the road. You want regret it. Excellent seafood and great atmosphere/scenery! X2 Food is great, nice atmosphere but don't expect white table cloths. Also try the crab shack in Folly Beach or the Crab house on the Intracoastal Waterway (145 Wappoo Creek Drive)

RE: Savannah, GA campground recommendations

Skidaway, nicest park we've stayed in. Thought James Island in Charleston was good, but Skidaway has that beat. Already booked for next October.

RE: Midwest to GA - avoid steep grades?

Thanks again everyone, We'll probably stay over around Nashville while traveling south. Not sure at this point whether we'll look for a pet friendly motel (traveling with our cats), a campground on the interstate or deal with a walmart parking lot long enough to get some shut-eye for a few hours. Do you know of any campgrounds around that area that I could call and see if they are open around that timeframe? Two Rivers campground on Music Valley dr. in Nashville open all year

RE: Midwest to GA - avoid steep grades?

Kansas City -> St Louis, MO via I-70 St Louis, MO -> Mt Vernon, IL via I-64 Mt Vernon, IL -> Nashville, TN via I-24 Nashville, TN -> Birmingham, AL via I-65 Birmingham, AL -> Atlanta, GA via I-20 Atlanta, GA -> Savannah, GA via I-75/16 any thoughts you may have would be appreciated! Thanks in advance. With the exception of starting from Chicago (taking I-57 to Mt. Vernon), we just completed this trip. No mountains to speak of and very good roads once you're out of IL. There also was minimal construction along the way. We went thru Atlanta on a Sunday afternoon and traffic was minimal. Not sure why people are telling you about mountains around Chattanooga.

RE: Ford Edge, Honda CRV or Jeep Cherokee, which to tow?

I do not believe the new Jeep Cherokee (Fiat!) is 4 down towable in any configuration It is if you get Active Drive II. As long as it has transfer case with Neutral, you can tow it.
