I am wondering if anyone can give me advice regarding towing a 2005 Jeep Grand Cherokee approx. weight 4700 lbs. behind my 2004 pace arrow 35g with GM 8100 power. I have installed Banks Power to increase HP by about 70+ HP. What difference will this make to my gas mileage and preformence? I am planing a trip from B.C. canada to Mexico.

Welcome to iRV2.com. Most RVs have the power to pull more than they are rated to tow safely. You should look on the data plate for the weight rating of the coach and also for the gross combined weight rating of it and the toad behind a motorhome. You do not want to exceed either of these ratings to be safe and usually legal. You should also have a brake assist of some kind in the toad as well. You can do a search of these topics by clicking on the find button and uncheck the box in the dropdown and then search. Good luck and enjoy the website and forum.
