  1. Thank you for that info, bobbyks. My husband agrees that the off-roading capability of the Jeep is a plus, but I wonder how often we would have an opportunity to do that. Given your number of towing miles, I'd say the Jeep has been a good choice. I dunno, though, since this will be our only car I am still having trouble with those mpg averages...I can see this is not going to be an easy decision!
  2. We recently purchased a 2000 Bounder Diesel 39z and are looking to buy a car coming off lease to be our toad. The three vehicles we are considering (all 2012 year) are Jeep, Chevy Malibu, or Subaru. We'd like good MPG when driving around town, which isn't a feature of the Jeep from what I can tell but that might be offset by better ease of towing. We'd like to hear from folks who have towed any of these vehicles four-down. Have you had any problems with setting it up to tow, the towing procedures when traveling, or any transmission or battery issues? What kind of mileage do you get when driving it? Is there anything you love or hate about it that it might help us to know before we decide? If you could describe your towing procedure, that would be very helpful. We would like to avoid buying a car that will require a complicated procedure before or during towing, and from what I have read in the forums so far, the owners manual doesn't always accurately explain how it's done! Thanks!!
  3. The wingman works but Jack antenna works better. Jack antenna package comes with its own amp. You can use it or the coach amp. In my coach my amp is in the antenna line and is left on all the time. It is only shut off when coach is not being used. In most cases I get a good TV signal. This does not seem to bother a cable hook up. It might be that your coach amp is not working properly In any case the Jack is the better antenna.
  4. Had same problem as you. Solved it the same way you have. Coach was 2 years old when it got hailed, 10 years later still working fine.Hope you are as lucky as I.
