Got the 35S loaded with our fifth wheel goods, did some thinning out too. Drained the freshwater tank down to 1/3 and headed out yesterday around 11am.
Ran it across the CAT scales in Northern KY and was surprised see just over 19000 lbs.
Drove I75 to Lexington, KY then I64 east to Mountain Parkway. I varied my speed from 60 to 65 during this portion of the trip with 55 on the 2 lane section of Mountain Parkway. The majority of this trip was without tow/haul mode selected. The only time I engaged this feature was when I had a few hills to climb.
Steering was much better with the added weight, no handling complaints at all. At this point I'm not sure if I need to do the "cheap handling fix" modification, can't imagine getting any improvement over what I have now. Think I will adopt a wait and see attitude on the chf.
The only issue for now is the drivers rear view mirror needs to have the 3 set screws tightened. It tends to develop a lean while traveling so this will be an easy fix. So far we have spent 4 rather uneventful nights since we took delivery.
