I shared your concern moving from a 2,700 pound Jeep Wrangler Sport to a 4,300 Jeep Trailhawk... I posted my concerns and the folks on this site kept telling me not to worry.  They were 100% correct, My E450 pulls that Jeep like it's not even there. So, now it's my turn... Don't woory

Jeep makes two Trailhawks--Renegade which is much smaller and Cherokee. Which are you towing?
We have the Cherokee... Was told we Renagade can't be towed.

I tow a 2014 Trailhawk up and down I-81 from above Scranton to Roanoke with our 2016 PC 2351 on a 450 chassis and have never had a problem. I do have a good brake system. Only the slightest tail wag but not enough to start spending money on. Go for it!,,
Hi Ron/Toni... That is the route I take on my way to NH/Maine.  When I towed my Wrangler up the "hills", I never had to go to lower gears. Thanks for the good news.

joey,
Not to hijack your thread--West Virginia??? How do you go and when are you leaving?

Judi
Hi Judi, We leave on June 24th and stay at the Savanah KOA the 1st night on our way to NH.  I will not travel through DC, Baltimore etc.  I love going to Richmond and take RT 64 to 81 into Scranto then on to NH via 84.

I am going from towing a 2,600 pound Jeep Wrangler to towing a 4,000 pound Jeep Trailhawk.  To be honest, I'm a little nervous about towing this through the hills and small mountains along Rt 81 through West Virginia, Virginia and Pennsylvania.  How much are you toing with your PC and do you have any struggles.  Thank You

I don't know where to start... Every RV we have had has always had a generator and I can't imagine not having one. There is little or no maintenance.  I have it serviced once a year at a cost of $32. Living here in Florida, I look at my RV as a second home on wheels in case of a weather emergency.  One time last year we were without electric for a day.  I just got the RV, started the gen and put food in the frig and slept in it.

Although some don't approve, I sometime run the generator while traveling in the south so I can run the AC.  Even if not running while traveling, it is great turning it on when you stop for lunch so that you can warm something up in the microwave.

Lots of reasons to have one.

Judi,

We will be at Shore hills in Boothbay Harbor on August 4th-8th.

Hey Judi... We will be in NH and Maine from the 1st of July through the 3rd week of August.  While in NH we normally stay at my brothers home in Dover (he has a hook-up without sewer).  For that reason we go over to Wells Maine ever 4 days for a week. The Sea-Vu campground in Wells is probably the best campground we have ever stayed in while camping in New England.

I may not have been clear in explaining what my wife is looking to do.  She would like a window put into the side of the driver side slide so that when the slide is out (while parked) she can look out and while the slide is in, she can see out the front window (through the slide).

"Happy Wife, Happy Life"... Maybe not in this case.  My wife is telling me she wants to put a window in the side of the drivers side slide so she can sit on the couch and look the front windshield through the slide.  I told her it can't be done without damaging the integrity of the slide.  I'm struggling with the explanation.  Have anyone out there ever do third third party or at the factory?

Thanks Paul... That would be great info to have.  I do not have a trickle charge as well and I'm on my way up to New Hampshire (from Florida) next month.  My plan was to simply charge the battery by just starting the car and letting it run, when I stop for the night.

I agree Paul... If it aint broke don't fix it.  Do you have a "trickle charge" to the Trailhawk?

Good Morning,

This is intended for the Trailhawk Toads out there.  In a previous post I talked about my new Trailhawk and you all your input put me into a nice comfort spot.  I was concerned because the the Manual seemed quite complicated in regards to towing.  Many more steps compared to my Wrangler.  Well... This past Friday I received a "Customer Notification" with a yellow card (copy attached) that was to be inserted in my Manual to replace the page on towing. The new instructions tell me 2 things. 1) "It is recommended that the battery of the towed vehicle be charged during RV towing". Is this necessary and how do I do this? 2) It simplifies the hook up to only two steps, "Transmission in Park, Power Transfer unit in NEUTRAL (N).

Do any of you Trailhawk owners own a 4-cylinder or do you all have the 6-cylinder.  I bought the 4-cylinder hoping I would be OK with it.  Also, again to the Trailhawk owners... Is it easier than it reads to put this thing in 4-wheel neutral. OK, while I'm on a roll (no pun intended) as with my old Wrangler, can I assume the Trailhawk rolls without running up miles on the odometer.  Thanks again.

You folks are amazing... Not only do I have the best RV but also the best friends. Doneworking, your the reason I bought the Trailhawk. Ron, thanks for "taking one for the team" so we all can learn. I'm going to pull the RV onto a level surface tomorrow, hook it up again and see where I'm at.  I'll post another picture when I do.  I'm afraid that if it's "close" the 4 incher may be too high on the other end.  I also noticed that because the base plate is spread quite a bit, it looks like the Trailhauk is closer and tighter to the RV... I don't know if that will becpme an isue.
