The base plate install is done, so the wiring is next...
I bought a harness from Mopar that plugs into the Jeep wiring. It has a 6 foot lead with a 7 pin plug that fits right into the motorhome.

Cooltech also sells a kit with OEM plugs Cool Tech LLC. JK Tow Harness Kit. I beleive it's a bit harder to install (have to run the cable from the rear to the front, but it does the same thing.

Thanks again everyone, still looking around at my options, I have until next spring so I'm sure it will find me when the time is right, just like the Kar Kaddy did

Happy Halloween

Car Kaddy, no. Jeep, yes. And did I say Jeep yes? I've been towing Jeeps for 30+ years, with zero problems, except for the time I forgot to release the emergency brake, but that was obvious within a few feet.

The only drawback on Jeeps is, of course, the poor fuel mileage, but when you're getting 7-9 MPG with the MoHo, what's 14-18 with the Jeep? And you can do more of what you're out there for!

I never have a problem finding somewhere to store the caddy, and my Jeeps hook up in a matter of minutes, without the extra weight and length.

I wouldn't even think of anything else, and you end up with a freakin' JEEP!

Nuff said.... Except did I say how much I love my Jeeps?

Sorry man, not into Jeeps. We have a 4 runner that quenches that thirst just fine.
We just need something small to tour around and visit the local sites...oh and to pick up groceries and stuff too

Not into Jeeps! Isn't that against the law?

We've been towing my wife's Rav4 on a Master Tow dolly for three years without a problem. Works out great because the Rav has so much space in side. We carry fire wood, coolers and 30 packs of water with out taking up the basement space of the motor home. Hook up takes less than ten minutes (if I center it on the first try up the ramps) and uh-hook five minutes or less.

For all the Jeep lovers out there, if we ever get to retirement and get to use the RV a lot more than now, DW and I would love to tow four down with a Jeep. Only problem we foresee now is we take our kayaks with us on top of the Rav4 (J racks) and don't know if we would be able to do that on a Jeep Wrangler.
