Dodge Caravan 2011 as a toad

Any one towing a 2011 Dodge Grand Caravan 4 down ?

According to Chrysler, it is not possible. I am looking at installing a Remco lube pump; any one used one on a 2011 Caravan ?

I towed a 2005 Caravan 4 down and every 150 or so miles cranked the toad and went through the gears for about 5 minutes and never had a problem. I could not find a lube system for it so took a chance.

Have a 2008 Town and Country with a Remco pump. Nothing but problems during hot weather. Pump can't keep the trans fluid cool and the warning buzzer would go off.

See my previous link here.

I tow a 2006 with a lube pump with no issues at all. Thousands and thousands of miles. My previous 2002 tc same thing. No problems at all. Not sure if my next van will be another tc or a honda. Based on the other guys problem with no dipstick on the tranny fluid check, it doesn't sound like something I want to deal with. I will not go to the dealer every time I want to change or check fluid.

I went back and reread of your issues. I just don't understand what would make that thing chirp like that. The only time I get chirping is when the fluid is not warm enough. As soon as it is warm, chirping stops. Do you still have the issue or did you sell it? You can now buy the special fluid dipstick with instructions on how to use it.

Pirate,

Still have the T&C but use my Jeep as a toad. Remco could never give me an answer or solution. Chirping of the warning buzzer is caused by lack of pressure which is not good.

or the pan fitting is in the wrong location or to high on the pan, or one of the hoses is swelling on the inside after the fluid goes through it for hours....

just never read anything before about hot fluid causing issues with the pump.....either because of it or from it.
