  1. I have a 2014 Jeep Cherokee, big knobby, wide Firestone tire. I've been across the country to Palm Springs, Ca., to Florida and back. As of yet, haven't had it to wobble, Hope I never do. A quick fix would be two bungies on both sides of the steering wheel down to the seat frame, or, a "fix" that would waste gas, start engine and run in idle. Maybe the wide tires give it more stability?
  2. Thanks for the advice. I have Dish for Rvers and it is set up that when I want the service, I call them and they take my pin and credit card number start the service. Then when I get home I don't pay the bill and they stop service. So while motor home is sitting or in storage, no Dish bill. I think its a good deal.
  3. So, If I take it with me and I want wingard traveler on my next motor home, then all I would have to do is buy the dish antenna and mate the receiver with it?
  4. I have a wingard traveler with Dish, If I were to sell my motor home or trade for another, do I leave the receiver with the motor home or take it with me?
  5. I've had the same problem at most Flying J/Pilot pumps. The pumps are putting out fuel faster than our filler tube can take, If you look at the big tanks and filler hole on the tank of the big rigs, it is quite larger and can take the volume. I've encountered a few pumps that the volume was turned down and it never clicked off, last year I was able to fill my tank up to the top and the gauge read full, most of the time it reads a little over 3/4. Most of the time I click the handle to the first notch, if that doesn't work I stand there and fill it as slow as I can. On the subject of Flying J/Pilot, I go there because easy in and easy out and I have a card I get 5 cent a gallon off and don't have to go inside like the truckers do. To each his own.
  6. I am puzzled, 2016 towing guide states that, as far as I can read says all Fords and Lincolns with auto trans. can be towed 4 wheels down, am I missing something?
  7. Glad to see FCA is owning up to the problem, but I am not paying $218. for them to fix the problem. Mine has never wobbled except turning around on a secondary road and the Jeep dropped off the blacktop and when coming back on it started. It has been a good flat towing vehicle.
  8. I was at my dealer yesterday for 6 recall fixes. The service rep. knew nothing about the "wobble" and knew nothing about a fix.
  9. This is developing into a mess like GM had over the Chevy Cruze when it came out. I bought one and three months later they gave me my money back. I don't think I could get my money back on my 2014 Cherokee! But I have not had any problems with it except when turning around my jeep dropped off the shoulder on a side road and when getting on again it started to wobble. I stopped the M.H. then started again and no problem. I've put about 7,000 miles on it and no problem. If it does happen I would bungee cord the steering wheel or start and idle engine. Then when getting home believe I would head down to my Ford dealer and get one of their products as all can be towed four wheels down, hope it doesn't come to that, last Ford I had was a 1948!!
  10. Well, just got back from a 5000 mile round trip, on all sorts of rough and smooth roads. I have a 2014 Jeep cherokee trailhawk. I did not encounter any "death wobbles" going down the road. I did miss a turn off to a RV campground and had to go down where I could turn around with my 40ft MH and Jeep. In doing so the jeep dropped off the road shoulder and when I pulled around to go back to the campground entrance the Jeep was starting to wobble. I slowed down and it stopped and I went on. I've had no other problems, it follows me perfectly. I also keep a cheat sheet in glove box to aid me putting the trans. in and out of towing mode. My hitch on the motor home is aligned very well with the tow bar on the jeep which is a road master stow master 7000, very heavy, in fact, it is getting heavier or I am getting weaker!
  11. I've been following this thread on all the RV forums and it seems that folks with Jeep Latitude's and Liberty's are having the wobbling problems. Any Trailhawk folks having the same problem? I hope I don't have to go through the flat wheel towing fiasco again. I had to fight with GM in 2011 with the Chevy Cruze situation when they advertised they were towable 4 wheels down and then came out 2 months later and said if towed 4 wheels down it would void the warranty, took 6 weeks to get my money back.
  12. I have a 2014 Jeep Cherokee Trailhawk, bought it for flat towing. I have a Roadmaster Stowmaster towbar, it weighs a ton, made of steel, hitch at proper height. I've had no problems. I had a 2000 Jeep Wrangler before the Cherokee and a 2011 Buick Regal, both towed great. Had a Saturn before all of them, only had one incident, made a right turn off interstate ramp, Saturn dropped off the pavement. When it came back on the wheels were cocked to the left and wouldn't come back until I got out and straighten them. Hope I don't develop problems with the Cherokee, I'll trade it in fast if I do.
  13. I don't think there are many people at Dish that understands RVer's pay as you go program. This year I stopped paying April 15th, all the way into May I got a bill for $158. The first time I contacted support I had to explain to them how the program works. He or she had to talk to their supervisor at which time they understood and said they would wipe out the $158. Fine, got a bill again, $158. To which I E mailed back, "I don't owe you a dime" To which I got a reply by someone who must knows something and they agreed and wiped it out. Now I am going to wait and see if I get a bill in June. Mass confusion at that company.
