  1. We haven't been at it long either and started off towing with a dolly. I towed my 2003 Dodge Grand Caravan and never knew it was back there. My only problem, and I have never figured out why, when I unloaded the van to use it when we got to our destination or returned home, the power steering pump would make a noise for about 50 to 100 miles. Normally it was about to straighten out when I loaded it back up to bring it home. I've had it checked out and no one has been able to tell me why it did what it did. I towed it with the wheels locked by the key, I even tried towing it with the wheels unlocked trying to figure it out. I tow a Jeep Liberty and have been for a couple of years. I enjoy flat towing much more than using a dolly but you have to do what's best for you. I'm starting to explore upgrading the Liberty to something more comfortable for me to drive. Ethel loves it but I don't enjoy driving it to far. If someone needs a 2006 Liberty 4wh drive set up to tow with about 48,000 miles on it, let me know. It's nothing fancy. It has cloth seats, A/C, CD, P/W & locks, and all the other normal factory stuff. I'm a fanatic about maintenance and it's sitting on low mileage 30" tires. It's about a medium blue in color. I live in South Louisiana. Good luck to you!
  2. Thanks Steelman. I'll follow up on your suggestion.
  3. I think I've researched this and have a reasonable solution to the problem, for me. It's a Progressive Industries Electrical Managment System model EMS-PT50C, Portable. It is a 50 amp that provides total electrical protection and has a digital readout of the AC power source. Book price is $468. Perhaps someone could advise of a better price somewhere.
  4. We're real new to the RV life and look for things to do to prevent problems down the road, or in this case, in the campgrounds. I would appreciate some suggested simple surge protection devices I could add to my motor home's electrical to help prevent these surge problems discussed in this thread. I'd like to have something I could add at the plug rather than have to wire it into the coach but whatever I need to do to keep us safe. I carry a multimeter and in our short time on the road, I've found some really bad electrical recepticals in some parks. I've had to rewire a parks receptical once and repaired / clean / adjust a couple that were just worn out recepticals.
