Worst case scenario is water damage towards the rear of the camper has added more weight behind the tandems than the factory intended.

Well, it was empty. Like I said, no battery just the box. I am sure one propane bottle is totally empty and the other is surely not at capacity. No water, nothing of any considerable weight in the trailer and absolutely nothing in the bed of the truck. I was pulling about as empty as you can get.

my thought is flat spots on the tires from "sitting" and when the warm up they should even out

Nope they are brand new tires. I put them on a day before I moved it.

Having no battery and no propane will make the tongue weight lower than it probably should be. Add a couple hundred pounds of weight to the front end of the inside of the trailer and try towing again.

Or maybe the truck shocks are bad. I'm replacing mine this week after about 95k miles, since I've been noticing some porpoising myself when I tow my TT.
