RE: Front wheels locked

Drop the front drive line and see what it does I myself am not going to do any thing. the jeep is in the dealers shop about 3 hours drive from here. They are going to check it out as soon as they get new tires & wheels so they can get it on a rack. I just told them to figure it out, and fix it.

RE: Front wheels locked

egh33 - do you use a supplemental braking system (i.e. brake buddy) or a break away brake system ? did the toad braking system activate ? did the transfer case selector slip into gear ? No, I do not use a supplemental braking system of any kind. The brake away cable is attached to the emergency brake. It was fine. The transfer shift was still in neutral.

RE: Front wheels locked

It drove good when I unhooked from the coach except for the flats, wheels turned just fine. I haven't got the rims or tires yet, they had to be ordered. The Dealer shop was not going to get to it till Monday. I do not use a supplement braking. it's not required do to it's weight. You can not lock or unlock the hubs it all done thru the transfer case. As I said I have been towing this Jeep for 12 years with no problems at all.

RE: Front wheels locked

The steering wheel was free to turn, the wheels were straight ahead, yes there was smoke not much till I stopped No noise. The wheels would not rotate round and round. The ignition Not turned to lock. I checked that as soon as I got stopped. Sorry about the year 2002 I just figured you would notice I have been towing the same Jeep for 12 years. Thanks for the reply

Front wheels locked

Yesterday I was towing my Jeep Wrangler (4 wheel drive standard) behind the Motor Home Same as I have done for 12 years. And the front wheels locked tight, before I could get stopped & off the road way it had skidded the tires all the way to the rims. I had the Jeep transmission in 2nd gear and the transfer case in neutral just as the book says to do. The dealer had no idea what may have caused it. Any else ever had this problem??

Bad Roadside assistance

Today I had the misfortune to need to use my CS Road side service. I was in MH with a toad Jeep. Both front wheels on the Jeep locked tight. I did not even know it till the MH started pulling very hard. I looked in my rearview mirror and seen smoke. I was in a Construction Zone, 2 lane road. By the I got off the lane as far as I could with out sinking the coach in the mud. Upon inspection of the Jeep both front tires had slid on the pavement till the wore all the way to the rim. Called GS Roadside assistance. It took the gal about 15 minutes questioning me as to why I needed a wrecker. Then another 10 minutes or more trying to explain my location to her. Then she put me on hold for another 15 minutes I handed the wife the phone as a state trooper had stopped and I went out to speak with him. My wife waited a complete 45 minutes on hold, while I spoke with the trooper as he wanted me to get the rig to a safer location. He explained there was wrecked service just 3 miles down the road from where I was and gave me the name and Phone # of the wrecker service. I returned back to the phone instructed my wife to hang up. I called again and explained to the person that I had been put on hold for over an hour, so After explaining to her that there was a wrecker service with in 3 miles of my location and giving her the phone number of he wrecker service she placed me on hold for another about 10 minutes. She did come back on the line and informed me she had given the information to the lady that I spoke with first, and said the lady would call me back and verify that she was sending a wrecker. She did call me back in about 20 minutes and said the wrecker would be there in about 35 minutes. The wrecker did show up in less that 35 minutes and loaded the Jeep and to the Jeep dealer he went which was only about 5 miles away. Of course they had no wheels or tires to fit my Jeep so they have to order them Monday then see if they can figure out why the front wheels locked up. We were only about 3 hours into our trip of about 1100 miles so we just left the jeep and came back home. I just want to say the ladies need more training and learn to be a little faster and not place a person on hold for an hour.

RE: Foodsaver/Vacuum Sealers

We have one, my wife will almost always cook up more than we eat. Then vacuum seal the left overs and when we get ready for a trip she takes it out of the freezer and puts it in the MH freezer and when meal time comes along if we are camped some where not close to eating places she pops it in the Micro-wave and we have a meal. Have had one for years. works for us just great.

RE: Tire advice

we are in same position as to ready to buy 6 Michelin xrv 22.5 for 700 each but my long time dealer suggests they do very well with the continental brand. I am interested in any opinions on the hankook or the continental. tom I bought 6 Michelin 22.5 last month for $500.00 each mounted,balance every thing. But I checked the tires this morning,front tires have 105psi rear 103psi. My old ones I carried 100 psi front and 95 psi rear. What's y'alls opinion on that?? There is a card on the drivers side door that says 105 front and 95 rear.

RE: Just received the strangest phone call ever!

I know what you mean. I have a very, very hard time understanding him. Same thing, he tells me My computer has downloaded a bunch of stuff that will slow down my computer. I keep telling him to repeat as I can not understand him. Pretty soon he hangs up.

RE: Front Air Bag Replacement - Chevy P30 Chassis

I replaced the air bags just by cutting the old one out and taking the new air bag removed the valve core and rolling it as tight as I could, put a couple of zip ties on it and slid it right back in the bottom hole and then clipped the zip ties and put air in it and that was done.

RE: Warm Norcold

If yours is like mine, which I just had new fans put in, it works fine when I first turn it on as long as I don't move the coach. I drove a little over 100 miles and it quit keeping the lower part cold. I took the out access panel off out side and placed a fan blowing on it and it cooled it right down. My freezer compartment stayed froze all the time but always after I drive a little with the fridge on gas it warms up in the lower compartment. I took it to the shop and they don't know why it does it either. I would suggest to you try the fan out side blowing in on the back of the fridge.

Debris on road way

Here is a little story. We were traveling in the Motor Home towing a Jeep on I-35 south, north of Waco, Tx. I seen this piece of plastic on the road and I was running about 60-65 and could not move over into the left lane due to heavy traffic, so I just straddled the plastic and kept going. I looked in the rear view mirror and did not see the plastic. So I thought maybe it blew up on the front of the Jeep. But when we got to College Station, Our grand son said he thought my spare tire cover had blown off the Jeep and was dragging the ground. So I went to check and it was that plastic, it had wound it's self around the front differential of the Jeep and it was not just a piece of Plastic, but a big plastic sack of chicken guts. I mean it was a mess. Took me about 2 hours to cut it off there. I have chicken grease covering the complete undercarriage up all over the engine. I tried a pressure washer, no help, so I guess I need to find a place to get it steam cleaned. So the next time you see some thing in the road way think twice before running over it, I know I will.

trouble getting on site

What has happened to the open roads forum ? I have been trying for the last 2 days and all I could bring up is the ad telling me how cheap it is to get the good sam ERS. But I don't know if it my computer or the Good Sam site. Any one else have this trouble?? I tapped in to it just now and works like it always has.

RE: Motorhome with TV down

We are looking for a motor home with the television down, not above the windshield. Any suggestions? My brother-in-law has a Winnebago with the TV right behind the passenger seat in a cabinet like place. When sitting in the chair or on the couch it is a little above eye level. I like it better than ours that's above the windshield.
