REMCO pump

My REMCO does exactly the same thing. After towing fine, a few big bumps, sweeping turns, deceleration over a rise, alarm goes off & then comes back to normal. Slowing to 55 also seems to stop problem. Have tried everything REMCO & all my friends can think of to no avail. Am about to give up & remove it. Try different car. MH is 2005 Winnebago Vectra pulling a 2009 Lexus RX 350. Problem has been there since newly installed in July. Terribly frustrating.

Have same problem with my 2008 Chrysler Town & Country. Could not tow when ambient temp was above 75 or so. Got worse when I bought a DP and the heat comes right out of the back.
Seems the area when the trans cooler is located is off to the side of the main grill opening. Trans fluid got hot and foamed so pressure dropped. When I had to do a long haul in the heat, I had to start the engine, put it in neutral, take off the toad brake and it would keep cool as the engine coolant was also being circulated.

But best solution was buying a Jeep to flat tow...

Also if you have a little time , a new member is looking to start full timing with 3 girls ( Motor home or fifth wheel ) is his post; kidzrock5, user name , maybe you could share some , ideas about what works for you with your 3 boys.

Skip since you worked for Chrysler do you know if the trans pumps the fluid around the trans at idle? If so why worry about the Remco the amout of fuel burned is very little but would put on miles towed.

Retired before the 6 spd. was introduced, so trying to figure out if this fluid foaming is a problem common to that trans; but if the transmission, dip stick says to check fluid idling in neutral, then the fluid is circulating . I don't have any issues with my current toad ; 41TE, 4spd; and would consider, hot wiring the rad fan , with the battery charge wire , before idling the engine and rolling up the miles.
I'm planning on moving my current pump to any new toad that requires it , so pump purchase price is not a consideration.
Guess , I'll just have to borrow my neighbours 2012 and do some investigating.

Skip,

Mine is the 6-speed 62TE. No dip stick. They have a graph on how to measure the trans fluid level based on temp. So I bought Autoenginuity.com software which hooks up to my ODBII and an aftermarket dip stick to measure the trans fluid myself.

I will look up kidzrock5's post.
