RE: Jeep Death wobble

Historically death wobble on multiple brands has been lack of caster. Yes, tightening up clearances with new parts helps as does a steering damper (which just tries to control the wobble) but, in general, solid front axles require 5 to 7 degrees of caster. I have heard (or read) that if you toe it in a little that it takes out the death wobble. This is the first I have heard of camber. WW

RE: Does Your State Require a SBS

And I drove my Wrangler ALL over Utah....no ticket. Lots and lots of fenderless Jeeps there and no one was pulled over....j/s. WW and this proves what? lazy cops bumpy Probably not. I was being glib. I am sure if you look like you need to be pulled over the 50% fender rule is a darn handy way to look in your Jeep and see if you doing something you shouldn't be.... WW

RE: Does Your State Require a SBS

Why does this matter and who cares? Its just irresponsible to tow a vehicle without a supplemental braking system in place. Just do the right thing and you won't have to worry about it. I agree completely. I completely disagree....FWIW....lol. I have one and use it sometimes, sometimes I do not. Never seen a towed vehicle breakaway, never seen my brake buddy do much of anything, really. It tells me when it brakes and it is so seldom....and only for a second. I set it up more aggressively one time and it is annoying and I am sure tearing the **** out of my Jeep.... I just love this subject......and the comments. If you get pulled over I am pretty sure no one will check. Only time I believe it would be an issue is if you kill someone. Then maybe there will be litigation to see if not having one would have made a difference. I do not know why they call it common sense since we all have a different view. And so you all know....I always drive whatever is posted as the speed limit...yes, 75mph....and I drive some crazy steep mountain passes multiple times a year....so....not flat. And I drove my Wrangler ALL over Utah....no ticket. Lots and lots of fenderless Jeeps there and no one was pulled over....j/s. WW

RE: Towing Jeep Trailhawk

We tow 3 Jeeps. A 2012 Wrangler, 2015 GC, and 2016 Trailhawk Cherokee. BY FAR, the nicest to tow is the Cherokee. Weight is great, tracks well behind the coach, and is super nice to have a mixture of a little Jeep for off-road or a grocery hauler to get supplies. Why on earth do you need a charge line? And why not the Blue Ox baseplate? It/they are hidden (2 pieces) and very good performance and super easy to install. WW

RE: Air Conditioner Performance

Howdy, Not sure if this helps, but we are in Colorado and have issues with the sun beating down at the high altitudes so we bought a roll of the thin insulation from Lowe's and cut it to the windshield and put it in for storage and camping. When we visit the southeast and the high heat/humidity, we still use it. It makes a HUGE difference. And we have three 15k A/C's.....and still use the shade. In the southeast, summer, almost 100 degrees....you can hang meat in our coach. WW

RE: Interesting article: Tesla Semi Electric Motorhome.

Lots of politicians have made millions with this global warming stuff and to me thats all it is. Is the earth changing? Sure it is and has since the beginning. Must have been camp fires cave men used during the ice ages that started it.:S This has been my argument. I believe that if you burn wood it still emits carbon. So, billions of campfires would do what to the atmosphere? About what China is doing to it today.... And running a genny to not run your own engine? Seems counter-intuitive. WW

RE: Miles per day.

We live in Colorado, so some of our drives are only a 200 miles. When we go to the southeast, we try and do 700 on one day and only 300 the next. I think that 300 miles in our DP is a super easy day.....700 is a long way....but nice to get a big chunk out of the way. In the west, you could drive 300 miles and not be anywhere....just depends where you are going and coming from... WW

RE: Fleetwood ratings

We have a 2013 and it is certainly one of the best in the price range. The Tiffin Red would be the equivalent and is about the same if not a bit more chincy. The Winnie is nice but I am not sure if they have a comparable coach in the segment and you certainly will not find a Newmar in that range....I like the Phaeton and it is comparable. I am not sure I would buy a Fleetwood again.......I am not a huge fan of the support (or lack there of) that we got with out coach. The 2015 will have a nice 8.9L ISC and is a very nice coach for $139K.....and from what I see on the 15s and newer, Fleetwood Discovery is a very nice coach. You would be getting a lot for your money. WW

RE: Dolly towing

I am no expert, but I believe you can NOT tow a Jeep with a transfer case with only the rear wheels on the ground because the transfer case/transmission is lubricated by a pump that is driven by the front driveshaft. So it will spin okay, but it will not lubricate unless the front driveshaft is spinning working the pump..... WW
