Since it has only been touched on I will ask a question here..
What is the actual tongue weight of the trailer loaded ready to go... (not what is posted by the manufacture) it should be 10-15% of the weight of the RV any less and you will get sway...

The trailer should also be as close to level as possible tipped up or down will cause a variety of problems.. sway, braking problems, blown tire problems....

2004 Chev Silverado Duramax optioned past the max. 2009 Jayco Eagle 308 RLS 765 watts of solar, 6-6 volt batteries (696 amp hour), 2000 watt (4000 surge) whole house inverter.

Don't know what the actual tongue weight is when ready to tow as I'm hooked up to the truck and don't have the means to measure 4-500lbs. I know the trailer is not rear heavy, as there is maybe 70-100 lbs behind the axles. All heavy stuff is just forward or over the axles and some light stuff in the front storage areas. The trailer tows great now with the Reese Dual Cam hitch. Just have to get used to all the snapping and other noises it makes in tight turns and when backing.
