  1. Our height is listed at 12’6”. I don’t go under anything listed below 13’6” and if it’s that close, I might just go around.

    Education

    An online course on Diesel engines would be a good start.
  3. All great suggestions. One more though, if you have a large mud flap on the rear, tie it up or remove it. It helps to keep the abundance of small rocks and gravel off your toad. Another thought as well, I found that a lot of the gravel parts have calcium chloride on them to keep the dust down, this when wet can cause a mess and also corrode your aluminum wheels. A good coat of wax on the wheels will help.
  4. Your Wrangler would be the newer model, a JL. The standard M&G brake system will not fit your model, but they now make a different one, give M&G a call, they are very helpful.
  5. If the valve is seeping, sometimes opening it and letting is snap closed a couple of times will remedy the seep. Also as mentioned, make sure there is an air pocket in the tank.
  6. Wow, you must have really had a twist in the frame to pop out the windshield. I’ve only read about a few occurrences of that.
  7. Sounds like you are getting power to the solenoid, I am assuming the motor is not running. Just because the solenoid makes a click does not mean it’s good. You can replace it, or first try the old hammer trick. Have some one operate the switch and tap on the solenoid. They can also be jumped with a heavy jumper wire.
  8. We did 62 days this past summer in BC, Yukon and AK. After a couple of days I did strap up my full width mud flap because it caused all sorts of rocks to fly up onto the Jeep, fortunately no damage. We did get two chips and cracks in the windshield though . And neither was on a gravel road but on good paved roads in BC.. Also be aware that in BC and Yukon and parts of AK, their idea of road paving and repair is gravel and oil. Also between the time they lay the gravel and oil it, they put sodium chloride on it to keep dust down, really does a number on metal and aluminum wheels.

    Towing

    We have a 2018 37AP, we tow a 2018 Jeep Rubicon Recon with Smittybilt roof rack, winch and front bar. I really don’t know its behind me. As far as handling, can’t believe you could not tell the difference between the Red and the Bus. We previously had a 2014 Phaeton and the difference in handling was like night and day. The Bus has IFS, big difference when putting on the miles in the seat. I could also tell the difference in the power as well. Unless you plan on switching tow vehicles, I suggest you skip the Patriot and go with a permanent mount brake system like M&G. As far as price, if you are willing to travel, you can get a better price from the big three near RB.
  10. If I recall correctly, Tiffin also had a problem with units starting around 2014. These were on the mid level coaches. The covers were not UltraLeather but something similar. Tiffin was replacing them for a few years and now I think they will just supply you with the covers and labor is on the owner. The problem was traced to the vendor supplying the covers.
  11. Chances are your inverter killed your batteries. Tiffin has put in a dedicated switch to disconnect the inverter when in storage. Also like someone mentioned, you should have been able to leave the coach plugged in without an additional charger and all should have been fine. Our coach is plugged in for months at a time when parked at home.
  12. Have you tried a reset of the inverter?
  13. If the cooler is leaking, you can also look in the radiator. If fluid made it there, there will be an oily sheen on the water.
  14. You might have a leak in the trans cooler that is allowing antifreeze into your trans. https://www.freeasestudyguides.com/atf-pink-milky.html
  15. Personally I think they are a waste of money. Yes a few will say it paid for itself but I think you’ll find most never get their money’s worth. if you are concerned about expensive repairs, instead of paying all that $$ up front, start your own savings account and put that money aside.
