:o OK, OK...
Yep, I towed my 17’ Casita
with the top of the line Jeep Grand Cherokee - 4 door, white, V-8, Orvis. Orvis is the leather seats and ALL the bells and whisles.
I love that Jeep. I still have that Jeep, although it is in the local easy-ad for sale
. I had so much trouble with it, you wouldn’t believe. The dealer I bought it from took it back into the shop three times and replaced everything he could think of to get the thing to stop over heating.
It would over heat when it saw me hooking up the Casita
, otherwise it ran & runs perfect. I know, I know, how can a stupid Jeep know when it is going to have to work? Hey don’t ask me, it just did. The Jeep dealer ran every test they could. No luck. They put dye in the radiator to check for any cracks in anything, replaced the radiator with a three core (two core is stock). New water pump, twice. New thermostat. New hoses. new heads, new intake manifold gasgets, Checked electronics, lean/richness, and on and on. Remember Caddy Shack, that is the way the dealer got around the Jeep from H---.
Bottom line, the Jeep could not carry the 3, 200 pounds of Casita when the temp outside was over 100* or it was an up hill pull. (The Jeep is rated to pull 6,500 lbs.)
So now I own a Chevy Tahoe. Here in the (true) South West, we have long drives, big mountains, and HOT temperatures.
I don’t know if this is relevent or not, it just is my story. OK, too long a thread :zz :zz
