Thank you for the welcomes! I have a question though, as stated, this is my first motorized, I've alway had Fifth Wheels in the past. Is there anything I can do to improve the sway on the highway? I could always go 70+ with my Fifth Wheels, now I'm lucky do go 55 mph with the Jayco. It's all new to me and may be the nature of the beast, which is ok too, since I'm in no hurry!

YES! Contact Jayco for an alignment for your Redhawk. The factory nor dealer does those before delivery, but virtually every unit needs it!

As far as I know, you only get ONE alignment paid for by Jayco so first...
do searches on this site for Redhawk and Greyhawk. You'll find there are many with the same problem and many solutions have been tried... some successful, some not so much. You need to know what to do (alignment specifications etc.) before the alignment is done.
