Aug 2nd, 2016 11:59 amI towed a 2005 Jayco 1207 - the 12 ft pop top trailer with a 2005 Dodge Caravan for 10 years. Is there an easy way to find out or do I need to call the dealer. Ya know, with all this information floating around, you might think by now especially with the interwebs it would be easy to actually confirm the part you need. I guess they changed to electric as well.

And that exactly because of the hinge which is breaking the platic cover while ur sliding the doors. Like you my battery was drained a few night ago after messing with the door.
I have struggled with this recurring issue since 2014!!!. It may be that we hold off on our camping plans for a couple of years and buy a new vehicle with towing in mind at the time of purchase. Always verify all wires, wire colors and diagrams before applying any information found here to your 2009 Dodge Grand Caravan. Door locks work fine however Took the sliding door harness surrounded with the plastic track apart and found two wires completely separated. The manufacturer was notified of the failure. Although the 1207 is quite heavy the jayco does have a built in hydraulic brake so we never had to install the electric brake.
I do not foresee you having a problem with being able to tow any pop top trailer with your vehicle - short or long distances. For more information go to. If its not very frequently or not very long distances I would say dont worry about it I would say for now, at most, every second weekend or so, and I can't imagine great distances exceeding 300km from the Ottawa area. I would want anyone with the same vehicle to know this is probably the result of numerous electrical component failures or problems they are experiencing that may lead to excessive repairs that are not necessary if the wiring is routed in a better way to avoid overheating. If you get sone thing that's just 1200. Possible catastrophic fire could result if plastic reached specific temperature to alight. One of the most time consuming tasks with installing an after market car stereo, car radio, satellite radio, xm radio, car speakers, tweeters, car subwoofer, crossovers, audio equalizer, car amplifier, mobile amp, car amplifier, mp3 player, ipod or any car audio electronics is identifying the correct color car audio wires for your 2009 Dodge Grand Caravan.
Burning plastic smell was noted during 4 hour drive. I do not foresee you having a problem with being able to tow any pop top trailer with your vehicle - short or long distances. Easy enough to find a 10 footer though that would be a bit lighter though. This issue needs to be looked at as a severe issue in cases of safety because both my doors do not open and this vehicle is gently used for a 10 year old vehicle. Wasn't this covered under recall? Could be wrong about that. We never had any issues what so ever.
Door opes and closes correctly, window works, etc. The drivers side sliding door did its typical intermittent close to about 95% and then stopped. It appeared the motor was stuck engaged and was making it very hard to move. I couldn't get it to disengage to at least make it roll freely. We also were experiencing small electrical issues all over the vehicle, problems with windows, slide doors, accessories, radio etc. I have had 3 issues in under 5 years with both sliding doors locking up and failing requiring electrical work to be done to correct the problem.
Aug 2nd, 2016 9:11 amSomething to consider in answering these questions is; how often will you be towing the trailer? Would you recall what engine size you had? I wouldnt want to town anything heavier than that with a Caravan. Whether your an expert Dodge Grand Caravan mobile electronics installer, Dodge Grand Caravan fanatic, or a novice Dodge Grand Caravan enthusiast with a 2009 Dodge Grand Caravan, a car stereo wiring diagram can save yourself a lot of time. Aug 2nd, 2016 11:59 amI towed a 2005 Jayco 1207 - the 12 ft pop top trailer with a 2005 Dodge Caravan for 10 years. They fail and the wiring breaks over 1 to 2 years. We never had any issues what so ever. We provide incredibly reasonable prices on quality parts. Any tent trailer within my price range would likely top out at around 2,000 lbs.
Found, and repaired, 2 wires. The approximate failure mileage was 82,466. So, if we're planning for the long run and purchase a 1,700lbs trailer or even one up to 2,000lbs if we do not get an Outback in the future , are the additional engine cooling systems necessary for our Caravan given it is rated to tow up to 3,500lbs? Against my morals I decided to visit the stealership. For more information, go to. One vehicle we have in mind is the Subaru Outback, which I understand the towing capacity is 2,200 lbs.
Victor Reinz supplies the automotive aftermarket with premium gaskets, seals and related components. At the least the parts woman was very knowledgable and gave me options on how to pick up the harness. After inspection of the electrical system a problem was observed with two of the main wiring harnesses for engine components, one was routed over the top of the radiator hose where it attaches to the top of the motor allowing excessive heat to melt the wire protection sleeves and wire coating which caused contact of wires exposed. Turns out the part number was actually on the harness, you just have to be a dodge guru to interpret what the numbers and letters mean.
