Jayco 377rlbh Gen prep and pin weight

Hello

Does anyone know if the generator prep option has an impact on installing solar panels and batteries? Easier, harder, no impact? The batteries would be installed in the front belly storage.

Also anyone measured the pin weight fir their 377rlbh? I am looking to tow one with a 2015 F350 Srw w/ airbags. Max cargo for my truck is 3600lbs.

Thank you!

I have a 377rlbh with the generator installed. With two battery's, full fuel tank for the generator, 3 propane tanks and everything we take with us we have 4160 on the pin. The generator and fuel probably weight 500 lbs. so you should be fine if you are staying at 3600. We carry a lot with us.

Thanks for the reply. Do you tow with a dually or SRW truck? If using a SRW how does it do?

Currently I have a 2013 GMC 2500 duramax. I'm going to be getting a 3500 GMC SRW, just debating on 2015/2016. I have towed it 2,000 miles so far and it toes just as stable as my 2014 Keyston Cougar that was 4,000lbs lighter overall and 1400 lighter on the pin. I mean you know it's back there, but no stability or any other concerns. Truck sets level with the Timbrens I already had on it from the Cougar.

2013 max trailer weight for a 4wd CC regular bed is 15,800, with the Duramax. GCWR is 24,500. I'm at the max trailer weight and under the GCWR.

Can't say I dislike anything so far, I like the laminate floors, they don't have the fake nooks and crannies for dirt to get into.

.

Is the 4100 lb. pin weight from a CAT scale or an estimate? I am just attempting to do my home work.
Many thanks for sharing.
