Question about Cars & Trucks
I can't seem to find an owners manual for my brother's 1992 Sandpiper he recently purchased. Any ideas?

How are the batteries on the sandpiper? If they are dry and/or shorted the alternator on the F250 will overwork trying to charge them thus overheating and burning out the alternator. If the batteries on the sandpiper are okay, you have a shorted wire either in the connection on the truck for the trailer wiring or the trailer wiring itself.

Checked may manual for my 1990 Montero, got the following:
2.7 Liter V6 trailer max # Max tongue
w/trailer brake: 2000# 200#
w/out brake: 1000# 100#
w/trailer brake 4000# 250#
w/out brake 1500# 150#
combined 8850 or 9291 (four door model)
In my experience (being an auto tranny in mine) I use my OD switch to let the engine run out a bit further in RPM or on slight grades to keep OD from shifting in and out.
Please let me know if this assited,

I have a Durango 2000 and pull a 24 foot ski boot loaded with equipment. I don't know about you, but I wouldn't try towing anything without the trailer brakes connected. I purchased the Titan Trailer brakes setup and they've never failed me once. The hitch: just make sure you get the right towing capacity for your travel trailer. I have the 5.9 liter engine, which allows up to 6500 pounds of towing capacity. Your owners guide will explain how many based on engine size.
Good Luck, and happy traveling.
