Last weekend I went to Panamint Valley Days and for the first time towed my Jeep Cherokee on a flatbed trailer with my V10 SMB.
I installed a Tekonsha Brake Controller (thanks Jage for your writeup on mounting it-though I chose a diferent place), Prodigy model.
I was very pleasantly surprised at how easy it was to tow. I had previousy thought, man I don't have a diesel so this thing will really bog down. Well I was wrong. This was a 225mile each way trip including some good eleveation gain.
While I did of course drive carefully and slower than normal, I averaged 55-60mph. At one fillup I calculated getting 10mpg, which was better than I anticipated. Alot of guys with pickups towing ATVs passed me doing 70-75, i felt comfortable at 60.
Becuase i just used a regular hitch I did get some of that rocking motion but not too bad at all. I will probably get one of those other leveling type hitches which should improve the ride from what Ive been told.
Bottom line is that the gasser SMB V10 ran great. I look forward to towing with it again.
