RE: Flush Transmission and Radiator?

You guys have all been awesome. Lots and lots of good info in this thread. Sounds like we are pretty much in agreement that 60k is not too early to change my transmission fluid and coolant. I appreciate all of the comments and your time.

RE: Flush Transmission and Radiator?

Flush is a bad word. Just think fluid exchange or fluid replacement. No added chemicals or procedures to "flush". As for the cooling system I recommend just a rinse with distilled water and refill with coolant based on the volume specification to get to 50% concentration. Top off with distilled water. yeah, I shouldn't have used the word "flush", I was just thinking of changing the fluid/filter....

RE: Flush Transmission and Radiator?

PS: How old are the tires? Rear tires are probably 4 years old now. Front tires were new last summer as I had an alignment issue and the front ones were getting cupped...

Flush Transmission and Radiator?

Hey All, I have a 2006 Chateau Sport (Class C) Chevy Express RV with about 60,000 miles on it. The previous owner took pretty good care of it, and I picked it up with about 38,000 miles on it. It's always been stored in a storage unit and is in really nice condition inside and out. It's my first RV and I've loved owning it. Previous owner always ran Mobil 1 synthetic motor oil and had it serviced regularly. I have a check engine light on (probably o2 sensor), and am going to get it serviced soon before spring arrives. I got to wondering about the transmission and I seem to recall the manual says to change transmission fluid at 100,000 miles. BUT I'm gonna have the mechanic go through everything and replace anything that looks suspect (belts whatever) as it's getting some age on it since it's a 2006. If you didn't know when the transmission and radiator were flushed last, would it be a good idea to go ahead and have these taken care of "just for the hell of it"? Or am I being overly cautious?? Anything else that's normally overlooked that I should have my mechanic take a look at while he's got it?? Thanks in advance for your knowledge and advice.

Shopping for a Jeep Wrangler... maybe?

Hey All... relative RV newbie here. I have a 2008 Chateau Sport (Class C) 28' RV and normally we travel without a toad. But I'm kinda kicking the idea around of getting a Jeep Wrangler to flat tow behind it. We travel a lot in the summer and I've always wanted a Jeep. I'm thinking about a used Wrangler of course and I'm pretty much a minimalist at heart, so I'm asking for some collective wisdom on what I should look for as far as which generation is best to flat tow? Does it matter? Are there significant differences in weight etc? Auto or manual transmission? It seems logical that a 2 door with a soft top is going to be the lightest, but other than what kind of advice would you offer to someone who is considering going down this road (haha no pun intended). I've watched a lot of youtube videos and it seems like the wrangler would be awesome for what I want to do, and would tow well. Thanks y'all, I appreciate your opinions. I'm sure some of you have learned the some lessons about this the hard way. And it's probably time
