RE: Jeep Cherokee tail light wiring

Installed the diode system on our 2020 Wrangler. Watch the Etrailer video and it is pretty straight forward. Spent more time fishing the wire harness through the frame rail than anything else.

RE: Cummins ISB 5.9 Cranks but no fire-ECM power.

Verify that you have fuel pressure. I’ve had the shut down solenoid stick and bleed off the fuel pressure. However this was on a Cat.

RE: Winterizing a Leprechaun 260ds

#1. Turn the valve in front of the tank so no anti freeze goes into it. #2. My wife watches the gauge in the camper and let’s me know when it’s almost full I’ve always meant to time it so I would know the time from empty. #3. I’ve never taken the bed platform off Removing the panel to the left of the access hole gives you a good view of everything. I added some foam insulation to keep the lines from resonating and quiet the pump. A small accumulator tank is on my to do list. Swapping out the access screws for Velcro tape makes the job fast and easy. For Bob: it’s no big deal, you could stand there and hold the jug, but my way is easier for me. It’s only about 5 minutes a year

RE: Winterizing a Leprechaun 260ds

We also hav a 260 DS. In order for the “suction” to work I have to elevate the antifreeze above the valve. Setting the jug on a step ladder works fine. Once it starts drawing it works fine. It doesn’t require much fluid either.

RE: Jump starters

My Tack Life was about $80 on Amazon. It loses almost no charge sitting for 6 months. Being 2 years old I would expect newer versions to be even better.

RE: Jump starters

I think they will spin the motor over about 3-5 times and the die quickly. That's if,,, the battery in the vehicle was only partly dead. If it is dead, dead, as in not enough power to light a single 12 volt tail light bulb, then I don't think the Jumper Pack (as they are called around here) will do much. Quite a strong opinion for no experience with them, but this is the internet... They would surprise you with how many jumps you get out of a single charge, even with diesels.

RE: tire pressure class c

We have a 2019 260DSF Front 70# Rear 75# Airbags at 50# These #’s work great for us. Gusty 35 + blowing the semi’s around and we had a steady ride. I might try 75# on the front tires on our next trip, but think the handling and ride quality might suffer. The door sticker calls for 75 and 80.

RE: Traveling in Winter

Coastal route I-95 is often 10-15 degrees warmer than I-81 You should be able to get out of the freezing weather in one day.

RE: Braking system & brake buddy

FWIW I have had good luck with my Blue Ox Patriot system. Feature I like is you can monitor amount of brake being applied.

RE: Braking system & brake buddy

If the toad breaks away, it more than likely won’t harm or kill you or your family, won’t damage your property. Still need a legal requirement to have brakes on the toad? Now that you’re comfortable that if the toad breaks away your safe, Maybe time to think about the others on road.

RE: Do You Trust Hitch Locks?

I currently use the the locking pin you picture. Many miles of use with no problems. At the height of my paranoia I tack welded everything together. Never lost anything either way.

RE: Tow vehicle specs

clicky and from personal experience i'd recommend installing a separate wiring harness ans bulbs in your jeep. it sounds harder than it really is. when we started towing back in '03 the diodes (which function like an A/B switch) in the original wiring harness kept blowing leaving us with no tail lights or blinkers. we put in a second set of bulbs in our jeeps connected directly to the umbillical connector in the front of the jeep. Sorry to hear about your problems with your previous wiring. I don’t know about the A/B analogy the current diodes pass current from either source and do not backfeed to the other leg. Anyway FWIW ours have been trouble free in two different vehicles for many miles

RE: Tow vehicle specs

We used to tow a Jeep Liberty with an automatic. Just finished setting up our 2020 Jeep Wrangler for towing. Went with Blue Ox equipment. Roadmaster diode light kit splices into your tail lights easily. Jeeps are popular because they are so easy to tow. Put transfer case in neutral and transmission in park and you are ready. As others said, check the manual to verify the one you are looking at will work.

RE: 1994 holiday rambler 38 cummins no fuel

Not sure about Cummins but my Cat’s stop solenoid actually dumped the fuel into the return. So when it stuck on it appeared to be a no fuel issue. And it was, just not delivering fuel to the pump.

RE: Is CG info available from MFG's

Not as important in a 'C' bc the tc sits taller in the saddle . Actually it’s more of an aid to make sure the COG is ahead of the axle.
