Recommended Components to Flat Tow 2004 Jeep Grand Cherokee Laredo Sport 4WD Auto Transmission


Can I flat tow my 2004 Jeep Grand Cherokee Laredo Sport Utility 4WD Automatic trans. behind a Class A motor home?


Helpful Expert Reply:

Yes. Your 2004 Jeep Grand Cherokee Laredo Sport 4WD with automatic transmission is able to be towed behind your motorhome you will need to shift the transfer case into neutral and follow all the other towing requirements under recreational towing in your owners manual.

There are many components that go into flat towing your vehicle safely and I'll make some recommendations for you to give you the complete system to get you safely on the road. I recommend starting with the Roadmaster Crossbar-Style Base Plate Kit - Removable Arms # 1425-1 and then using the Roadmaster Falcon 2 Tow Bar - Motorhome Mount - 2" Hitch - 6,000 lbs # RM-520. This will connect the two vehicles, and then use RoadMaster 68" Single Hook, Coiled Safety Cables - 6,000 lbs # RM-643.

For your electrical, I recommend the Roadmaster Diode 7-Wire to 6-Wire Flexo-Coil Wiring Kit # RM-15267 which safely uses your factory wiring while protecting your vehicle electronics. For your supplemental braking system, I recommend the Demco SBS Stay-IN-Play DUO Supplemental Braking System - Proportional # SM99251 which once installed is a simple flip of the switch to move from drive mode to flat to mode.

The # RM-88400 relay is required to prevent the towed vehicle's brake signal from overriding the turn signal from the RV when applying the brakes during a turn and then I also recommend the Roadmaster Charge Line Kit # RM-156-25 to keep your Jeep battery charged while towing. Finally you will need a high-low adapter and that will be dependent on your motorhome and vehicle height, so I've attached a link to your options as well as a help article to assist in choosing the correct adapter to meet your measurements.
