Default Won't go up hills

So we were getting ready to take a weekend trip. Grabbed the kids, pets, family friends, etc. and a bunch of luggage. We were in a rush so I quickly opened the trunk of the coach to throw everything in and low and behold the previous owner left an old engine back there. I knew I didn't need it because the one in front was running just fine. In order to make room for all the luggage I decided to pull and cut out all of the stuff connected to the old engine. It was just in the way. After we were all set and loaded, we pulled away and down the hill we went. The coach was running really quite, so whatever I did fixed the noise issue. When we started up hill the coach stopped. I was able to back it down the hill again but it just won't make it up a hill. Any idea what I should be looking for? The engine up front is purring like a kitten.

Hope everyone is having a great day! Just wanted to put a smile on your faces.

Good post and a good laugh. In the years I have owned and traveled in my 'bird it has become apparent there are not that many folks that know what a Wanderlodge is.

At two RV parks, one fairly recently I've received comments about that "little motor" pulling such a big RV.

Always a "funny".

Due to the fact that we have a lot of newbie's and guests ready the WOG and they may not understand where this thread is going, I'm moving it over the Under the awning sub-forum.
