  1. Best Setup for RV Flat Tow

    Greetings IslandNomad. . . and fellow ATX Jeep/rv owner. I will check out your list, but also note I made a similar checklist of sorts and it can be found in one of my earlier posts if you’re interested in taking a look. Maybe between the two lists we’ve got it covered! I have the BO tow bar and...
  2. Can the JL be flat towed behind an RV ?

    A reasonable question, not stupid. . . the only mileage added is to your RV odometer.
  3. Recommendations for high quality Neoprene seat covers?

    Please report back on the RC's after you get them installed and congrats on pulling the trigger! Based on their reviews, I'm sure you'll be happy. Jeep on! It won't matter to you at this point, but others should note Coverking (and maybe others, too) makes a couple different kinds of Neoprene...
  4. Flat towing ignition mode?

    You don't want to leave the Jeep / toad in ACC mode, it's not necessary and would just drain the Jeep battery. To power a supplemental braking system, folks on this forum have done as you noted - a long cord to the rear "always hot" 12v outlet and some just added an "always hot" 12v outlet under...
  5. Recommendations for high quality Neoprene seat covers?

    We just bought true "wetsuit neoprene" seat covers for our RV (driver and passenger seats) and while they are new, we are happy with them so far. The brand is Coverking and we got them on sale thru Costco, but they do sell direct, too. The quality and fit looks very good, easy install.
  6. Hidden Falls Adventure Park

    TH, thank you for setting up this thread, good idea. I haven't been to HF yet, but would like to go later this spring to learn the ropes from those who know. . .
  7. Best Setup for RV Flat Tow

    My safety cables (from BO) did not fit the Maximus tow loops or my D-rings, so I bought rated clips by Curt from Amazon (https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B000LOI69C/ref=ppx_yo_dt_b_asin_title_o03_s00?ie=UTF8&psc=1 ). I ended up skipping the D-rings completely and just using the clips on the end...
  8. Best Setup for RV Flat Tow

    Hypalon Man is one of several very helpful folks on these forums that posted valuable information that helped me get things worked out. I have the same RVi unit and have the same observations about it's use. Everybody has different needs, but the unit works well for us.
  9. Flat towing ignition mode?

    Check your manual again, maybe things have changed. Mine is a 2019 automatic, but per my manual the transmission is supposed to be in Park, not Neutral. Transfer in Neutral, which is why it's ok the transmission is in Park as it's not engaged. And off we go, but I still like to see the wheels...
  10. Best Setup for RV Flat Tow

    Let it be said there is no one answer that fits everybody and all conditions, but I'm probably preaching to the choir. I see many folks using the tow light option - I'm just too OCD for it! There are other reasonable options along with strong opinions for towing gear on this forum, all good...
  11. Best Setup for RV Flat Tow

    Mac. . . I have a 2-door JLR Rubi with a steel bumper and went with the Maximus tow loops. I am very happy with the setup and like the clean look and having less stuff extending in front of me to bang into things. Others in this thread and forums have the standard bumper with the same tow loops...
  12. Best Setup for RV Flat Tow

    I have the Maximus tow loops on my JL and ended up going with a Blue Ox Ascent tow bar, as none of the Roadmaster offerings matched up with the tow loops when I did the install earlier this year. No adapters available at that time to connect the RM to the tow loops. I'm very happy with the BO...
  13. Best Setup for RV Flat Tow

    Duff, To be clear, I didn't have the "dealer" shop install anything. . . I personally would not trust them to do it right unless they had actual experience with such things. I had an independent truck / jeep mod shop do the work I couldn't handle and they were great. My local Jeep dealer...
  14. Best Setup for RV Flat Tow

    Hey Duff, welcome to the forum and congrats on the new Jeep! You may have already checked, but make sure your RV is rated to pull the Jeep and the hitch is properly rated and sized. Check to see if you have a working 7-pin connection on the back of the RV next to the hitch. You're looking for...
  15. Setting up for Flat Tow - show me pics of your connectors

    I used the breakaway cable set provided with the RVi Brake. The RVi is a small rectangular box at the "breakaway" connection, so it's fastened into place (back / inside of bumper) in line with a round hole drilled in the bumper. Rubber grommet in the hole to conceal the edge, breakaway tight up...
  16. Feedback request: Check my flat tow parts list/setup

    FWIW, I have the RVi3 Brake like Bilymac and am happy with it and as he pointed out, don't forget the toad battery charger. Did you double check the CA towing requirements? I was under the impression CA required it for anything above 1500lbs, but I might be mistaken and I didn't dig back into...
  17. Best Setup for RV Flat Tow

    Safety cable connections to the Maximus tow-loop brackets. . . the standard cables that came with my Blue Ox tow bar were not able to connect to the lower / back hole in the brackets, as the clip at the end couldn't handle the thickness of the bracket. The tow bar connects to the forward / upper...
  18. Big Bend Park

    Best places to camp. . . tent, motorhome, trailer, car. . . which one? The only RV campground with full hookups is at Rio Grande Village on the east side. It's basically a parking lot, but in a nice setting in a great location; note it's operated by an outside vendor, not the NPS. Adjacent to...
  19. RVI Brake3 flat tow brake system review?

    Excellent, well thought out system and after a few trips and 1400 miles, I think it's a winner. And it should be good as it is not inexpensive. We bought it direct when they ran a sale. Watch their videos if you have not done so already. As I've mentioned in other posts we went with the Cooltech...
