New Owner of a 29RLDS

Hello all, just wanted to say I am really excited to be a member of the Jayco Family and very excited to take my family on our first trip this weekend. We our really looking forward to all the fun times and memories. Thanks for having this forum, because I know that I will run into some problems and it appears that RVer's on here are pretty friendly and very helpful. I do have one question. I will be towing with my 08' F250 5.4L Gas which has the tow package and brake control built in. I also bought a Camco 1k/10k WDH w/ sway control. Does anyone believe that I will have a problem towing the trailer? I towed it maybe 10 miles to get it home and it seemed fine, just want experienced RVer's answers. Thanks again for a wonderful free site.

Welcome to the JOF and congrats on the new TT! I can't imagine you'd have any problem towing with your F250. Enjoy your maiden voyage and Happy Camping!

Congrats and Welcome! I agree with nevercominhome, can't imagine any issues with an F250 pulling a 29RLDS. However to be safe, suggest you pack it up (both TV and TT) like you would be camping and hit the scales just for piece of mind.

Don't forget to do a camp driveway if you can before you leave. This way you can double check that you won't forget anything and know how to operate all of the systems before you are away from home.

Our first trip

Our first trip was amazing. The family had a blast even though the weather stunk and the Florida Gators lost. But we still had a great time. Thanks for all of your responses. My truck towed tremendously in my opinion. I do have two other questions. Should I leave my fresh water tank full or drain it? Also, What do you all recommend to get cable television? I was looking at the Tailgater by Dish. Any thoughts or recommendations on that? Thanks

Also after our trip we talked about changing the dinette set table with four individual chairs with a u-shaped dinette or dinette that converts to a bed. Is there anywhere that I can purchase that kind of dinette or should I just build one myself?
