What is the tow bar down load of a Jayco Penguin please? Buying a new car and need to know please.

it is not the down weight of the van that is critical but the ball weight capacity for the vehicle
the down weight can be lessened by the use of load levelers or sway bars
most ball weights are 150 kgs to 350 kgs depending on the vehicle being used
before you buy the car ask the salesman or read it in the owners manual for the car

OK I do have Towing capabilities for my Captiva 7 LTZ Diesel. The caravan is rated at 1750 kgs loaded. Question- What is the towing capacity of a Captiva 7 Diesel suggests a tow limit of 1700 kgs with a max ball weight of 170 kg
if it is a 2.2 L diesel it is less than a 3.2 L petrol which is 2000 kgs
in your configuration you will need anti-sway bars or load levelers to get the ball weight down to the 170 kgs
then if you load the van for touring it will be well over the specs for the vehicle
the towing capacity should be on the plate inside a front door pillar along with tyre sizes and pressures

My 26be siesta motor home is missing. Standard equipment levelers?

This is not a big deal. If you do not want to go to the expense of replacing the original hydraulic levelers, you may use scissor jacks or bottle jacks to manually level the motor home.

Squeeling while Wheels turn

Slipping belt, low fluid are possible causes. Usually the turning of the wheels adds an additional load the the power steering pump which the belt needs to overcome. If the belt is old ( had shiny sections, missing chunks ) it needs to be replaced. Also, if the belt tensioner is frozen, it may not be able to keep the appropriate level of tension on the belt to keep it from slipping when the pump is under higher load.

Battery goes dead in about 4 days in 1996 buick park ave

most obvious cause could be the alternator ,one of the diodes has gone draining the battery or the battery itself its difficult to know without checking it out .Try disconnecting the battery and if it still goes flat then you know its a faulty cell in the battery .if it doesnt then try disconnecting the big thick cable on the alternator and see if that stops it

are you talking about the air bag suspension system or the shocks themselfs???if your car is on the ground and not staying up it would be the air bag suspension and those can be changed to metal spring suspension. if shocks then the answer is: yes go buy at auto parts.

Load levelers must be leaking, the air pump is running

No, you may want to replace the shocks though. You can leave the leveler disconnected and replace your shocks with regular shocks.

2005 chevrolet venture load levelers not working

had the same problem with my ford a few years back, found that the rubber seal on the piston in the compressor had run dry and it was too hard for the compressor to push the piston up and down the bore which cut the power to the compressor and you had to stop the car turn it off for a couple of minutes and restart it and the compressor would pump air for another couple of minutes and stop again.
I solved the problem by replacing the shocks with a pair of pump up shocks that have a valve like a tyre valve and you pump them up at the service station
hope this helps
