The last time I traveled through the "highland" (Think Bryce at 8000 feet) my check engine light came on. I pulled over and called Cummings read the code to them and they said it was the EGR. The told me where a dealer was a ways down the road and I stopped at the dealer. They put there computer on the system and said there was ONE hit on the EGR system. They explained that it was most likely caused by the altitude.

Ed, please correct "THEM" if I was wrong and that can't happen.

Maybe...lol. So an egr valve can stick at anytime.. standard operating procedure 1inactive count of something is not troubleshot. So this is for a yellow warning light that comes on and goes away. If the light has not come on since no worries.

Short post this time.
Denise and I are leaving for the day to cook a special "spaghetti" dinner for the Bread of Life group.
Then we go to where I have 'Gracie' parked and head over the mountains and along the sea to a boondocking site way south of us.
Nobody can contact me there as there is nothing within 40 miles as far as cell and signals go. See y'all Tuesday or Wednesday next week.
Play nice and I'll try to ketchup reading by a week Sunday at dinner.
I reiterate Dwayne's comments. Bye Y'all

I really don't understand about the Jeep.......It can be towed Four down. With the transfer case in neutral, only the wheels and drive shafts turn; the transmission is NOT turning, and everything is fine. With the front wheels on the dolly and the transfer case in neutral, the rear wheels are turning, the front wheels and transmission are not and everything is fine.


Not that hard, really.


Just saying.............


Tom

My take on the towing a jeep issue!
If you had gotten a Rubicon then you could have just driven the Rubi and pulled the MH and dolly behind it!

Tom
It will not tow 2 down because there is a pump in the transfer case and the front axle runs the pump
So if the front axle is not turning the transfer case is not getting the oil it needs.

That will do you fine. Just some subtle differences. Remember that if the LCD screen is on the battery life is considerably diminished. I have the GoPro 3+ (jealous of the 4 - not really) and I picked up a different housing for it that allows me to keep it plugged into the DC receptacle.

Nah! Don't tell them anything, just throw rocks at them. I still have jack problems. I have just finished reading 9 pages on another thread about Lippert jack problems and they all seem to be Winnebagos. Lippert bought out PowerGear back in 2013, so that includes the Kwikee line.

According to page 553 of the 2015 Jeep Wrangler manual, towing on a dolly with any wheels on a dolly IS NOT ALLOWED.

• DO NOT dolly tow any 4WD vehicle. Towing with
only one set of wheels on the ground (front or rear)
will cause severe transmission and/or transfer case
damage. Tow with all four wheels either ON the
ground, or OFF the ground (using a vehicle trailer).
• Tow only in the forward direction. Towing this
vehicle backwards can cause severe damage to the
transfer case.
• Automatic transmissions must be placed in PARK
for recreational towing.

Can you put the dolly in a consignment lot?

That is sweet... but I am gluten and dairy free. Maybe just bacon, eggs n berries would be good!
We are in strawberry season right now... Everything remotely possible has strawberries in it. Hubby has a patch he nurtures. I am hoping to get some frozen for later use. Haven't made jam yet with them this year...but it will happen later this week I am sure, we are getting behind in consumption!

I have heckled the weather lately so I hope all who were wet are drying out. As for that cold front that came through through this part of Iowa, all I can say is brrrr.... no rain but plenty of clouds and cold. Beats stewing in heat but I am surprised how cool it is for almost June.
