IMO use the 6 pin, you may want to add a charge line, etc., this will give you a couple extra/open pins, no other connections required.

Everything works ---almost

Finally got our 35S away from the dealer today, been there 9 weeks for warranty fixes, winterizing and tire valve extenders.

Hooking up the Wrangler went well, all lights work as they should, RVI2 brake installed and tested in the parking lot, good to go. Not much fun doing this at 10 degrees F.

I learned rather quickly in my first 90 degree turn that the steering wheel DOES lock with key removed. That was the last test I did before we departed and it did not lock while sitting still. I can report that it didn't take long to find that problem.

So now I am back to leaving the key in - turned to first position to unlock the steering wheel.

Any comments on the down side to this? I can always lock the Wrangler with wife's spare key. Does this create extra battery drain?

Leaving Sunday for FL, hope to resolve it tomorrow.

There are some fuses you'll need to pull to reduce the power draw. Your owners manual may have that info otherwise search the forum because I think I've run across it before.

If you need to pull a fuse it may be easier to add a switch to disconnect the fuse. One of our friends did this on an automobile, does away with the hassle of pulling ans replacing the fuse.

Seems a fuse disconnect is the easiest solution

Googled the subject and pulling a fuse seems to be the common denominator. A disconnect switch seems to be the easiest solution to my problem but won't do that until we get to FL and warmer weather.

Would be nice to find a switch that fits in the dash with the other switches, have to do some searching.

When I had the Wrangler serviced a few weeks back they did the recall on the airbag clock spring, had I known I could have had the steering lock disabled then. Oh well......

Oh wow, I didn't know you could have the steering lock disabled, I would look more in that direction.

Best of luck in your decision.

Need advice for Jeep Wrangler toad and Precept 35S

Good luck on the trip down, Nick.
Hopefully the weather is good to you. We actually had a low here of 37. But it should be in the mid to upper 70's by the time you arrive. I was still hoping to meet you and chat about the Precept.
How long will you be in Sanford?

Arrived last Wednesday

Made it here last Wednesday with only one issue, I managed to break a locking lever bolt on the tow bar. DW had to drive the Wrangler the last 100 miles

Blue Ox was kind enough to send a repair kit at no charge but I may haul it to the Tampa RV show tomorrow to let BO service it.

Larry, we will be at Wekiva Falls RV resort until about march 1 or thereabouts. We plan to head to Panama City early march to visit friends, no particular departure date yet. We are available about any time, send me a pm and I'll pass along my cell number.
