Jeep makes two Trailhawks--Renegade which is much smaller and Cherokee. Which are you towing?

Cherokee Trailhawk.  exactly!

We tow the trailhawk without any problems. We took it to Colorado two years ago through the mountains. We towed a JeepLiberty for years before that. I have been using a PC on a Ford E450 since 2010.

    We have bought and picked up two PCs at the factory. The first was a 2350 which had a cab vend window cover that was broke. My wife heard it rattling on the way to the campground. Next morning we went back to the factory and Bobby replaced it, and adjusted my outside mirrors for me. I was four hours late picking it up because they needed to get the jacks installed.

   The second one was our 2552 and I spent about two hours checking it over. I found that Phoenix had stopped putting the radio line in jack in the dash. I asked about it and they took the dash cover off and installed one. We planned on going Shipshewana south campground for the night to check everything, BUT a bad storm was coming so we headed to Indionapolis. BIG mistake. I drove through the worst part of the storm. when we got to out site, I went to put down the jacks, only to discover there was no control panel. Checking outside I found that there wasn't any jacks either. I pulled the check off sheet. Jacks where listed but not checked because it was in the fold. Four people, myself include, missed the jacks. A call to the salesman that evening got his voice mail. A call at 7:00 am to the factory got me Carol, who was already working on the problem. She set up for me to return (300 miles) directly to the HWH intaller. Four guys jumped on it the minute I pulled in and an hour later I was on my way to Phoenix. Kermit wrote a check to cover my gas with a little extra for my troubles.

   Shipshswana South is a good campground and you could spend a couple of days following the wife around shopping and eating at the Armish places.

   It would help if you would fill in your state on your profile. Some one on here might know of a good place near you for service.

   And welcome to a great way of life and a great motorhome.

I kept the ladder but deleted the roof rack. I can get onto the roof and don't have the rack in the way. Also easier to wash the roof.

For vac, my wife got a Dyson cordless that I mounted in the wardrobe. I had to run an extension cord to it but it works. If I had know before hand I would of had the factory  install an electric plan in the wardrobe. I will say it works really well and I can take it to the toad and vac it. She liked it so much she got one for the house.

The fall rally is at Cherry Hill Campground, College Park, Maryland, just north of Washington DC, in September. You have until June 15th to register or pay a penalty.

I think you can do that but you will lose your local channels when you travel out of your area. The locals are beamed to just your area. You will not get the local channels where you are traveling into.
It does not cost any thing to try it at home, so go for it.

Thanks Paul. Like you we got our Trailhawk when they first came out. Our dealer had to go get it from another dealer down in Va. Then we took it to a guy like your guy in Gettysburg, Pa. whom I have worked with for many many years. I told him what I got and he told me what to have done. Everything looked nice when they were done so I didn't ask to many question either. Everything has worked as I wanted.

I would be interested in your findings after the test. I might try it myself, if I can remember to do it.

Paul how do you handle the tail lights and turn signals? Will you be running the head lights on your PC all day, thus running the tail lights also? What will happen if it is raining and you need to turn on all your lights? Do you ever travel after dark?

I am 100% like Paul. I just got back from a 1200 mile trip to Michigan and their really bad roads with out any problems.
Yes I do have the hot wire from the PC to the toad connected to the Trailhawk's battery. It was done when the SMI brake system was installed. At the same time they hooked the Trailhawk's taillights/turn signals to the PC. I don't have to worry about the battery running down.

Like Paul said, "If it ain't broke, don't fix it."

Call Carol at the factory. She might be able to help you with the problem or get you a new one, generaly cheaper than you can get it.

Sorry for stealing your tread.

Polish Prince,

    Two days ago I drove from Frankenmuth, Mi to Zeeland, Mi. The only way you are likly to get a smooth ride on your Michigan roads is to upgrade to a hovercraft.  rolling on the floor

    Boy, do I hate your Michigan left turns. For those of you that don't know what that is, instead of making a left turn at a traffic light, you have to make a right turn, drive about a half mile to a u-turn and come back to the traffic light. That way Michigan gets twice as much traffic going through a intersection/traffic light. Plus instead of turning in front of stopped traffic, you get to make a u-turn in front of oncoming moving traffic, sometimes at high speed. Lots of fun when driving a PC while towing a jeep. Maybe someone can explain why this is better than just turning left at a traffic light. They do allow left turns , just not at some traffic ligths.

I would suggest that you check into a campground with full hook ups. Staying outside the gate will not let you check very much. The water at the factory is really bad, heavy with iron. Just check the sink in the factory bathroom. I would not put it into my water tank. Unless you have a sewer hookup, you can not dump, check out the sani con system. Turn on the water heater, stove and microwave.

During the walk thru check every thing, open and close every door, drawer, window and roof vent. If you got the jacks, try them out. My last PC I forgot to check them and I drove all the way down to Indianalopis before I found them missing. I had to return the next day to get them. Take your bath towel rods and toilet paper holder with you and they will install them where ever you want them.

The Elkhart Campground is very close to the factory and a lot of stores, including Lowes and Mandlas (sp).
