And,if it helps, all the parks we camp at have water supply/hook UPS. We fully intended on filling/hooking up at the sites and not hauling water.

05hemi,

I'm at a loss as well . The info that I was able to find on a search (based on your TV data) stated a Tow Rating of 8,000lb to 8,300lbs. At any rate, I'm sure that your Dodge contact advised you that the published Tow Rating (whatever it is) is decreased by the combined weights of the TV's options, passengers, and cargo.

The best advice I can offer at this point is, once you have your new TV/TT loaded for camping visit your local CAT scale when you have an opportunity. This visit will give you real world weight information and will also insure that your WDH is adjusted correctly.

After your visit to the CAT scale save the weight certificates and compare them to your TV's weight limits once they are confirmed. The following "Towing and Tow Vehicles" sticky will walk you through the CAT scale weighing process: https://www.jaycoowners.com/showthread.php?t=3871

Your Class IV receiver in WD (weight distribution) mode is rated for 12,000lbs maximum trailer weight and 1,200lbs maximum tongue weight...., so you should be fine with the 29RES.

If you should have any more detailed questions in respect to towing your TT with your TV, feel free to post over in the "Towing and Tow Vehicles" section of this forum for increased Q&A visibility.

Enjoy your new TT and feel free to post some pics of your first camping trip.

Bob
