The 264MHW and 23MB are similar in weight: both have GVWR=6500 lb. Does the extra 3' on the 264BHW make that much of a difference in towing. I have a Ram1500 V8/8Spd/3.21 and max towing = ~8k with 3 people.
id pull one first, high gear ratios are not towing friendly. My GMC Sierra 5.3 6spd trans and 3.42 gear struggled pulling my 2016 26bhw. 60 mph was a struggle on small hills. Needless to say I had to change tow vehicles. Got a 2015 f250 6.2 gas, 6spd, and 3.73 gear. Pulls great.

I use manual shift. Tow/haul is too rev happy. I can usually stay in 5th gear on most interstates and maintain 65-70 mph. Average around 10-12 mpg

I'll figure this out in a minute

Apparently I'm replying to the wrong people. I give up for the night. My original post was for NCCAMPER. But it went to mmuratet, my second reply I quoted myself and sent it to GONECAMPIN. So crap. I'll try again later.

Too much trailer for your car. Don't listen to RV salesmen they will tell you story's to sell trailer, I tow a Jayco White Hawk 2016 RBH
with a Dodge Ram 1500 and a good swaybar set up. If your vehicle is too lite trailer will pull you around , wind. 18 wheelers going by all contribute to make dangerous driving with underpowered under weight vehicles

Hi Everyone,

Sorry to hijack the thread but I have a question. I recently bought a Jay Flight SLX 264BHW (souper excited to join the RV world) and have it parked out on a ranch right now. I'm about 350 miles from it and I am wanting to buy a generator to take with me the next time I head out there. My question is, does anyone have a picture of, or know exactly what type of electrical connection the trailer has? I want to make sure my generator fits it as is or if I have to buy an adapter to it, I'd like to know which before I drive all the way out there. I know I should have looked first but I didn't think I'd be buying a generator before I head out there again and now it makes sense that I do.

Anyone have any help, or pics??

Thanks!

Javi

It should have the standard 30 amp male plug on the cord. We don't boondock, but I believe you'll need an adapter from the three prong male TT plug to a four prong genset outlet.
