Hi Dwillie,

Could you please tell me the model # of that x chock, and did you find it online? I too need the extra wide one for our Whitehawk 28.

Thank You.

Don't know if this is the right thread to ask this, but since I have an audience of DSRL owners..., I have a 2006 Toyata Tundra, Tow cap of 6,700 lbs, The unit I am looking at weighs 5,880 dry. Assuming I put in an average of 500lbs of cargo, Am I getting too close for comfort of being able to tow it??? Since I have seasoned listeners maybe you could advise me. Thanks

IMHO....that is really pushing it, you only have a little over 800 lbs to play with, by the time you add the weight of a WDH, cargo and passengers, I'll bet you will go over limit. Pulling on the hills will tax your TV pretty good too. Just my 2 cents

2 passengers is already figured into the weight of the truck so I have 800 pounds of cargo to work with, but I feel you're right that's cutting it close, especially on the hills...

Please comment if I'm incorrect...., but in another thread you referenced the Tow Capacity @ 6,900lbs, the unit "has a sticker weight of 5,800lbs" (yellow sticker weights represent 'ship weights'), and the 5,880lbs was the "CAT Weight with 2 passengers and two small dogs".

Reference thread: https://www.jaycoowners.com/showthrea...855#post116855

Just want to confirm if I should revise my data in the prior thread.

Thanks in advance,

Bob

Actual weight of Whitehawk with options as on the sticker by the door of unit: 5,817 lbs
According to my TV manual (2006 Toyota Tundra, 4.7 V8, Double cab, w/Tow package, 4x4 is 6,700.
Not to exceed 12,600 combined weight. Had my TV weighed at a CAT scale: 5, 820 lbs with 2 passengers That's the info I have, too many numbers.... makes my head swim.

I really like the unit but may it's not to be. Thanks, hubertus08

hubertus08,

Thanks for the follow-up.

I don't want to drift to far of the OP's subject matter on this thread, so my follow-up is posted at your orginal thread here: https://www.jaycoowners.com/showthrea...855#post116855

Bob

Remember, you will not be 'leveling' with the power jacks, only 'stabilizing'. In fact, the salesman who sold us our Whitehawk warned us that many people burn up their electric stabilizer jacks trying to level their TT, an expensive proposition. He advised a simple electric drill to use with the manual stabilizers, saved money and works well, a great suggestion. We love our Whitehawk!

As mentioned above they are to stabalize your trailer not to level it. So using electric or manual stabs doesn't matter. You level your trialer at three points. Your wheels ( both sides ) and your tongue . Your stabs are not really meant for leveling. I was told most electrtic stabs have a cut off point. When they can't move anymore the motor cuts off and they stop . So electric or manual will be fine. I have electric and love them but manual works well too.
