Towing a Jeep

We will be towing a Jeep Wrangler behind our MH to Alaska. I have tow master package on them. Any ideas on how to protect the Jeep's front and window from rocks. We do have factory mud flap on the MH.

There's been a lot of discussion here lately on this topic. You might try a search on mud flap.

With what you have now the consensus was to ensure the existing flap is at least 3-4" off the ground when at ride height to avoid having it kick up debris. Beyond that the Protect-A-Tow type devices that stretch a net between the two vehicles seemed effective. Bras and the like got mixed reviews since they can trap moisture and grit and cause their own problems.

Read through the previous threads for more.

We traveled form NY to Alaska 13k miles in 2012. We removed the MH flap when we arrived in Whitehorse Yk and stored underneath. Covered the toad windshield with a Pilates map stretched form drivers door to passengers door and two bungy cords form the outside mirrors and inside hand holds an our jeep to secure. We had no damage to the toad. However we had to replace the MH windshield due to a rock crack

We finally towed our Jeep wrangler. Interesting advanture. Although the manual says disconnect negative connection on the battery, we did not as we took the key out. There is no wheel lock. Jeep must not have updated their manual. We have a Wrangler 2009 model X.
Thanks for all your great advice.
