Guess I'm still asleep this morning, what is a threaded ball valve?


He is probably talking about a regular ball valve, where the connections are threaded.

4-down, hands down.

I've towed a vehicle probably 75K miles with my bus; 3 Explorers and a Ranger. With the later Explorers and the Ranger, I had the neutral shift kit
installed to shift the transfer case into neutral for towing.

I wired diodes into the taillights and mounted a 6 prong trailer connector on the front. Generally, I can hook up and be ready to roll in under 5 minutes.

   Yep, I love the way you're flying along.  Please keep the pictures coming -- they're making me feel really bad!    Grin

    I think I've seen those called "hose barbs".  Hose ends nor hose clamps slip off of those. 

depends who you ask... Smiley

     Oh, yeah, nothing's perfect.  They can be pretty hard on hoses and, of course, if the clamp breaks or loosens, all bets are off, but they're usually a pretty good solution.

      Thanks for that. I'm bookmarking that.  Some of Grainger's stuff is expensive but they sure have a lot of good components.

I have towed 2 trucks 4 down and now use a light aluminum car float trailer . after 1 or 2 trips with it you get fast at loading and unloading and it tows way better then 4 down + I can back up and I have brakes on the trailer . yes you need a place to put it and I use it for other things as well

If  you can put a shop-vac hose onto one of the lines and open the other, it will very quickly suck out all of the old fluid.  Works a treat.

Toad...Suzuki 2 door Vitara 4wd. Also I can tow the coach home if it breaks down, or gets stuck.

I have my Mercedes 300 Turbodiesel modified for 4 down towing. It tows well except you can't back up with it. On my truck I solved that by carrying my car (small car like Toyota Yaris) inside instead. Now I have room to tow a Ranger Tug 23. Good Luck, TomC
