Congrats on your 'new' 84 Sovereign~
I have one similar to yours and it's a great ole gal..
See numerous threads under my name for pictures of it~
Off hand, I'd say that you should be fine with your tow vehicle..
You didn't say what size engine you have or if it has the heavy duty tow package included..
The big Dodge 5.9-liter Magnum V8 generates 245 horsepower and 335 foot-pounds of torque. That's a bit more robust than the Expedition's optional 5.4-liter V8 (230 horsepower and 325 pound-feet of torque) and compares favorably to the Tahoe's 5.7-liter V8 (255 horsepower and 330 pound-feet of torque). The Durango should make a better tow vehicle than an Explorer. With the 5.9-liter engine and 3.92 differential, it's capable of pulling a trailer of up to 7,200 pounds. Chevy's Tahoe is rated to pull 7,000 pounds and Ford's Expedition is rated for 8,000 pounds. Fuel economy for the 5.9-liter Dodge V8 is rated by the EPA at 12/17 mpg city/highway
The above reply brings out excellent points..Additionally, be sure you check the vent pipes seal for the bathroom real well..By now they've long since lost their capacity to seal around the vent pipes properly and, "must/should be replace~!!"..
InLandRV has the correct ones for around 7$ each..Be sure you order "two"..
Is your unit the twin bed in the rear model or did you get the queen size in the rear?
Sorry to hear that your frig has been replaced as it's former unit was a three-way unit.(120vac, 12vdc and propane model)..The three-way combination is really neat.
It's rather unlikely that your axles are bad, unless it has just sat unused all of these years..simple to check..Take a look and compare the wheels on my unit with your's..They should be sitting very much the same..I assume that you still have the original steel wheels??
While on the subject of wheels, when traveling with your unit..You might wanta consider taking the wheel covers off while on the road as they're sometime prone to coming off (I lost two of mine this way..Grrr) and..they're not easy to replace`..Once on site again, you could put them back on for "dress purpose"..
Did you get the two owner's manual with it??
One should be the operations manual and, the larger one is the maint manual..
Love to see picture of the unit, both inside and out...
Again, welcome to the A/S family and many happy years of travel with the 84 Sovereign~!
proud owner of "SilverTurtle"..
29' is the correct length~
