Hello I am new to the forum and a new Jayco owner. My current set up is a Jayco 23RLSW and my TV is a 2008 Silverado 1500 excab 5.3L w/tow package. I also have a Husky leveling hitch. I love my new TT but it seems my TV is struggling some towing it . I am considering weighing the whole rig because I am stumped as to why . At 4800 lbs dry my TT is well under the 6700 lbs the vehicle is max rated at. I am no where near that . Maybe at the most with a little bit of water and gear 5,700 lbs.
Also I am planning to go to the west coast some time and just the thought of traveling up steep grades is causing me some concern considering how my TT acted on the hills of east Tx.If I remember right Oregon has some tight turns and steep up and down grades leading to the coast.If anyone can offer any real world experiences with similar set ups I would greatly appreciate it . Thanks in advance.
