Welcome. You'll find a lot of information, tips and ideas on this forum. My current Jayco is my third TT trailer but I have learned a lot from others on this forum.

Congratulations and welcome to JOF.

We have a very similar consist - X19H with the 2012 Traverse and love it.

A quick comment on this combo - your Achilles heal is going to be your Rear GAWR. Looking at your photo, you appear to already have a fair bit of squat. Looking at your photo on the hitch poll thread (elsewhere), you also don't appear to be putting much tension on the CenterLine's bars. I suspect that your dealer may not have setup your WDH very well.

I would load up with your standard load and head over to your nearest CAT scale to verify your weights. Pay particular attention to the RGAWR reading compared to the limit on your door jamb label. With 700+lbs of tongue weight, you will want to transfer it properly. May just take a single hole change on the take up brackets.

The 23B is mostly within the capability of the Traverse, but you will always want to pay close attention to your weights - spoken with experience. I revisit the CAT once in a while just to make sure I haven't added too many gizmos taking me over the limits.
