Trip from California to Alaska

For any of you who have gone to Alaska in your RV, can you tell me what is the best protection for your tow car on the roads in Alaska - don't know what we really need to get - Tow Defender, Guardian Tow Shield, or whatever - seems they are each pretty pricey so want to get what is really necessary.

We are going and towing our 1991 Jeep Wrangler. Since it is always getting scratched up touring the back roads of Arizona we are not worried about a few rock dings. I am going to craft some type of protection for the windshield but it should be easy as it is small and flat. Thinking about using a piece of indoor/outdoor carpet cut to size and held on with Velcro. Headlights already have a brush guard.

Except for the frost heaves the roads are no different than what you find in the lower 48.
For toad protection look at the Protect-a-Tow
Most RV batteries live a long and useful life, some are murdered.

This is not a bad idea. We used a Protect A Tow and still had some small rock dings on the Jeep's windshield and grill. Harsh winters make for many gravel breaks(road repairs). Also check you rear rock guard to road surface clearance...should be about 3 - 4 inches to help from it kicking up gravel on the surface. Bob

Bubble wrap and 100mph tape. You will see others with it.
