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

We got the notice last week.  We have been towing our Trailhawk now for two years and had absolutely no problems with sway or control.  I suspect that a lot of folks may have overlooked the fact that you have to have a very specific transfer case in a Cherokee to tow it flat on these new models.  I know for a fact some people have bought Cherokees to tow without knowing or investigating the model differences and gear differences. 

I doubt if I take ours back to the dealer to have it "fixed" since there is nothing wrong with it as is from our experience which is several thousand miles and towing under many different conditions.   If the road is extremely rough we would probably just disconnect it and my wife would drive it while I drove the PC.  But, if the road is THAT rough, we are probably really in the boonies and going twenty miles an hour anyway.  

Also, I truly believe towing equipment (like tires) is NOT a place to try to save bucks.   I wonder how many reports of poor towing experiences are really caused by the towing equipment and brake setup.   Maybe not, but something to think about.  

Call me old fashioned, but "if it ain't broke don't fix it" applies here for me.  I am simply afraid the dealer would screw up what has been an excellent towing experience by changing something.

When towing my Honda crv I have a hard time controlling the steering wheel when semi trucks are passing.  When not towing 2350 handles fine.  Does anyone have a suggestion.  I don't think safe to stearate is the answer as it is probably the car that is pulling the coach.

Any hints on removing the Rand McNally GPS in dash unit? I need to check for a blown in-line fuse.

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).

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.

Ron, can't find a fuse like you suggest.  Too bad.  Now to find a replacement that will have the same hookups and size.

Michigan roads are not made for the volume they see. You cannot turn left at a light because there is not enough lane capacity for the cars that turn left resulting in cars backing up from the left turn lane into the through lanes. It is design to reduce road expansion for turn lanes and keep traffic moving. I feel your pain because I used to pull a 30' TT and hated left turns.

Road fixes are coming as they raised our fees and taxes recently. By the way, right after raising them they said we won't see the road money for a couple of years, go figure. When they raised taxes and fees they said they had no money. Now with Detroit school and Flint water crisis money alleys are flowing from Lansing. I am looking forward to just visiting Michigan after retirement and finding my happy place elsewhere, hopefully in a PC!
