I'm towing a 2008 Town and Country minivan behind my Winn. Tour deisel pusher with a Blue Ox and a Remco Transmission pump.
While driving from NJ to Yellowstone, the Remco switch in the coach started to give a weak 'beep' signal. This beep indicates a loss of pressure - since it is a 'weak' beep, it seems that pressure was low but not totally zero. Weak signal would stop if I slowed down but would start again after a few minutes. Temperature outside was 90 degrees plus and we were driving for about 3 hours.

Called Remco and they sent me to a dealer in Kansas who replaced the coach switch and checked all the other connections. Three hours later, week beep started again. Remco also suggested that I run the minivan in idle which I now did just to get home. While minivan engines idles, NO weak beep regardless of speed, temperature, or length of time I tow. Shut the minivan engine off, and I have about three hours before the Remco coach switch starts it's weak beep.

Keep in mind that you CANNOT check the transmission fluid level on a 2008 Town and Country. You have to take it to the dealer where they insert a custom dip stick and hook it up to the diagnostic computer to get the fluid temp. I took it to the dealer when I got home and they said the transmission level and fluid were perfect.

Does anyone else have this setup with a Town & Country and have the same problem? I have spoken to the Remco tech a number of times and they can't figure it out. Thanks!
