  1. smell towing uphill

    Hello...I couldn't find any info on this topic... maybe someone can help. I have a 2010 Journey R/T. 6 cylinder. low mileage. The Rv is tiny. 13' Little Bigfoot. About 1200 lbs. Plus gear and food for 2 people. It did not come equipped with the tow package and there is no oil cooler listed on the window sticker. I towed with it for the first time and going uphill there was a distinct smell, like burning rubber or the like. This happened twice. on the trip out and trip back. It was a short trip, less than an hour and the oil temp gauge didn't move. My understanding was that all the Journeys had a transmission cooler , but only those with tow package had an oil cooler. I asked my dealer about installing only and they were totally useless, couldn't find any such part, didn't know what it was.?? Does anyone know what this could be? Also, I may be paranoid, but I sometimes think I hear a "tick" from the engine since that weekend. thanks for any help.
