Just returned Saturday from our longest trip, 800 miles total, to Gulf Shores Al. and back and I think we did pretty well following the basics. Let me know what we may have forgotten or done better please.
TV is 01 with 135 k on it had it serviced (oil, filter, check fluids and tire pressures).
TT; checked lugs, tire pressures, balanced cargo as much as possible. This was first long interstate haul and I didn't notice any fishtailing but in strong wind gusts or when big rigs went by it seemed to move the TV and TT in tandem so I am wondering if that sounds normal for a good anti-sway brake setting. Waited to purchase as much as we could at destination rather than haulin' the groceries. I felt the side walls at each stop to feel if they felt alarmingly hot, and each stop was at no more than 150 miles or about two hours. We kept it under 65 MPH at all times, I learned quickly to do all the giving and not blow a gasket if people wouldn't speed up or slow down coming off ramps etc. not worth it and not the time to play chicken!
The day after returning we gave her a good cleaning inside and out. We've had it six months and it was due, but I was also concerned about corrosion after a week so close to salt water, is that a legitimate worry?
That's all I can think off now, and once again thanks to everyone whose posts have helped educate us Newbies right up to and including the Swagman truck bed fork mount bike rack someone sent me a link to, it was perfect!
