RE: disappointing info for Jeep Trailhawk flat tow

Thanks for the update.

RE: Standard definition tv

Bill, Given what you said I suppose DTV could shift stations to different satellites perhaps for some benefit like more 4K programs? Or other non TV content.

RE: Replaced house batteries/no power

OP stated it took several minutes for the click. Perhaps something is detecting a problem and times out? I'd expect reverse polarity and shorts to be rather quick. OP Can you determine where the click is coming from?

RE: Standard definition tv

FWIW We use the HR44 at home and in the RV. All of the recorded shows move with the receiver and recording continues in the RV when the dish is up and everyting is HD. When we drive out of a spot beam the locals have to be changed...

RE: Standard definition tv

The HR24 will work. The HR44 requires SWM input so a converter will be needed. However per above it's unknown what will be available on the 101 satellite if/when DTV drops SD transmission. And I say if/when because DTV is just so transparent about this - NOT. Note: The HR24 can be configured for SWM (Single Wire Multiplex) and can receive up to 2 channels. The HR44 supports 5 channels.

RE: Frame stringer to bulkhead broken welds under water tanks

I've used 3x tiered 2x8 ramps when needed on the duals for years. Could go higher and could be built to raise the tag as needed. Needless to say the frame should then be supported with jack stands. There are also floor/bottle jacks capable of lifting whatever.

RE: Standard definition tv

I lost my local channels over a year ago using our carry out g3.There are also areas where DTV does not transmit SD. In 2014 I was in the Eugene/Florence OR area with no SD which DTV confirmed. That was my tripping point to upgrade to the RF Mogul antenna. I was using the HR24 receiver which receives SD/HD.

Drive it up on ramps.

RE: disappointing info for Jeep Trailhawk flat tow

We purchased a new Jeep Trailhawk in 2014.Suggestion - If you want help then post relevant information like model and drivetrain. What model do you have? My understanding is that Trailhawk is a trim level used on multiple models but that could be different for your 2014. \ Purchased 6-7 years ago and posting now - what is the point to this post? I own a 2014 Cherokee and have always heard all Trailhawks were towable 4 downThe 2014 FMCA towing guide has information on what can be towed and doesn't mention Trailhawk. And certainly FMCA is not the authourity but it does indicated model and drivetrain dependency. Look it up.

RE: Replaced house batteries/no power

Ok we can get everything to work off the batteries until I turn on the inverter then a click and everything shuts down.Are you sure the polarity is correct? Lights will work even LEDs with the polarity circuit, DC motors will run backwards. But electronics not so much. A $10 voltmeter from HF with the black wire connected to frame ground can help...

RE: Replaced house batteries/no power

Did you have shore power or solar charging at the time? Thinking incorrect battery hookup and battery isolator solenoid clicked on and fuses blew. Or does the RV have the salesman switch which is another clicking solenoid? Just WAGs. BTW I always thought Mandalay was a great unit. But fuse location that reqires slide operation for access is interesting to say the least...

You have pictures showing how they were connected - right?

RE: disappointing info for Jeep Trailhawk flat tow

Also have you called Remco for a possible solution? While I would not want a drive train disconnect if that is even possible it might be a solution for you? Mfgs specify 3 major reasons for flat towing: 1. Liability 2. Suspension/drive train 3. Toads constitute a small market share and testing etc are not worthwhile

RE: disappointing info for Jeep Trailhawk flat tow

Do you have active drive 2 in the Jeep? ...OP I agree, dig into what you are being told. Maybe it's the death wobble issue and they don't have the wiring harness anymore??? There is a LOT of information on towing and Jeep issues. Here is just one thread. https://www.irv2.com/forums/f85/jeep-trailhawk-questions-518579.html I read a lot until finally satisfing myself that my 14 JGC Overland had the right drive train and no death wobble because it has hydraulic steering. I think that the most critical issue is the type of drive train but folks on the above know a lot more than me...

RE: disappointing info for Jeep Trailhawk flat tow

Sorry to hear your news. Towing capability has always been a slipery slope going back many years. I was concerned about our 14 JGC towing due to Jeeps Death Wobble which seems to be related to Electronic Power Steering. Fortunately our's has hydraulic steering which provides adequate damping. It has an electric motor to run the pump but is otherwise hydraulic. EPS is a great option that allows different steering based upon road conditions. Jeep's Cherokee solution is a switch that allows the EPS to run while being towed and likely a charge line to the battery would be a "requirement". Point being when the mfg promotes invalid information plus whatever a dealer says it can become a owner problem.

RE: Adding a new 120 vac circuit and outlet

Mine new circuit starts with a storage area plug on a unused circuit. It has 2 drops and both are located inside of a cabinet for easy space heater use and storage. Back to the plug in the storage area where the new circuit uses a standard male plug. When I'm on a 30A pedestal and need the heater I run an extension cord to an available pedestal plug.

RE: house battery leaking

Are your house batteries 12V Marine Deep Cycle? If so be aware they are a modified starting battery and not a real deep cycle battery. May be OK for your use, but just so you know.

RE: house battery leaking

I've used a small 2 stage charger to maintain the batteries, with the RV shore power off, no ill battery effects. Turn the shore power on/off when needed. If the RV charger is the problem then can it be turned off, perhaps with a RV CB? I presently have no storage power and installed full disconnect switches for each bank. The RV comes home once a month for a 24hr charge.
