My 264bhw has gas/electric water heater

Interesting. I've looked at several on different lots and the literature states it's gas only. I think you found a lucky one.

Ok my mistake sorry I had it added as an extra option. It comes with just gas. It was something I requested before purchasing and the dealer came through.

Spur,

Congrats on the future new rig!!!


As for a wdh, get one with integrated sway control. The Reese Dual Cam, Reese SC, and the Equal-I-Zer 4 way system are all very good hitches for the money. The Dual Cam is a little more finicky to set up, and will need adjustment if the tw changes a fair amount (fresh water tank full vs empty). The SC and 4 way system are very similar. The Reese hitch head (same for both models) does allow a little more fine tuning for the wd bars adjustment. Any one of these models will be a great choice!

I have read some good things about the top Husky Centerline model. Some have reported you do need to be in almost a straight line to hook up and unhook the wd bars though. That was about the only complaint I found on the newer version. And it was heavy! Lol

Good luck!

I use a Curt TruTrack WD setup and it works very well. Setup is a breeze.

I would recommend stepping up to a premium hitch such as the Equalizer. The Fastway E2 is ok but you will have a much better towing experience with the 4 point sway control of the Equalizer, also referred to as the E4. If you go this route, get the 1000lb bars. The 600lb will not be enough. Dry weights and tongue weights are grossly understated by the manufacturers and do not include the added weight of propane tanks and batteries.
