White Hawk 30DSRE home - hooked up - and weighed at the CAT Scales

We have had this home now since last Thursday. Got the hitch on over the weekend, been to the CAT Scales, I can say the F150 tows it with ease. A year of due-diligence was well worth it in the end. Have zero items so far that need to be addressed, we are very happy and excited to take her out this weekend. The ProPride Hitch is wonderful.....zero sway.

Very nice! Wish it would warm up here so we can go.

Hi Gary,
Looks awsome....I just received the 12 VDC & 120 VAC schematics, for the 30 DSRE, from jayco. These wiring diagrams will be very useful should something fail. You should send them an email and request them.

Can you post your numbers from the cat scale visit? I am considering the PP3 and am curious.

Jayco must have been busy building White Hawks for the past two weeks. We got a call from Indiana RV Connection today that the White Hawk 27 DSRL we ordered Feb. 6 is ready for pick up as of today! I won't be able to go get it until the first week in April, so my report won't come until after that.

Still pretty good turnaround to order and have it ready one month later!

We ordered ours on the 1st of February, it was ready to ship on the 22nd, arrived at our dealer on the 26th and we picked it up on the 28th. I thought that was pretty quick turn around. They were just going in production with the White Hawks when we ordered.

Very nice unit!
Did your new White Hawk have levels (indicators) mounted on the unit.....mine does not!? I have a new 29 SQB.

No level mounted, not sure that is even an option. Just use a trusty old level I have.

On another note I had gone back and forth in regards to Power vs Manual Stabalizer jacks. Ended up with Power and I really like them, they do a real good job keeping it stable after you get it level. I also bought the BAL Extended Fit X-Chock which adds more help.

Glad to hear you're pleased with the power stabilizers...been toying whether to install them or not.
I'm ordering the BAL extended x-chocks for my unit to cut down on movement. I have the Reese Dual Cam hitch set up and had zero sway making the trip back from Des Moines after picking my coach up from RV Direct. I was a little apprehensive pulling the 29' (dry 5370 lbs.) with my Tahoe but it did extremely well.
