RE: Tow capacity, Electric brake box inside truck,tranny cooler?

You could purchase the OE brake controller and add it to your dash to save some money on install, but you will need to take it to the dealer and have them program the truck so the rest of the computers know that it's there and will function properly. Usually everything is there but you may need to add fuses for the controller and lights in the fuse block out front.

RE: Best skylight shade

I put a reflective film on the inside of our skylight over the shower. Was surprised by how much it blocked out but still allows light in. Kinda tough to install overhead but I managed. Use Camco smoke vent covers and depending on the day, I will put a couple vent pillows in for added benefit.

RE: Pro-Pride Hitch

Yes it is correct. I do have the max tow with the 6.5 bed. I know I'm close to max limit with this trailer as I was with previous TT and my Suburban at the time. May have to keep it close to home for awhile until DW can be convinced we need to upgrade truck which I was thinking about most of the trip.

RE: Pro-Pride Hitch

I'm using a Reese Dual Cam with 1200lb.bars does a pretty good job over all. Most of the sway experienced was trucks and other large vehicles passing which made DW quite uncomfortable. Yeah...I know most of the jerking is from the road. Don't get me wrong...there were some rather nice, smooth roads out there also and made it nice. I've been towing a TT for just over 20yrs. now and feel I have a good handle on my setup and mainly looking to see if there is anything else out there that may be an improvement. With this trailer having a rear kitchen...I bought one of those spare tire hangers that mount under the trailer and is just in front of the door in an attempt to remove some weight off the rear. It seems to have helped. As a side definitely made it easier for dealing with the one tire blowout we had. I'm still trying to decide if I like this Torflex suspension. It feels like it is a stiffer suspension than our previous trailer with leaf springs. I guess with this having been the longest trip we've had with this trailer...I still have more questions than answers.

Pro-Pride Hitch

Recently returned from a 3000mi round trip to Texas. First long trip with our TT. DW and I have discussed some issues that arose during this trip-the two most important turned out to be sway and the constant jerking from the trailer over some of the roads we travelled. I have researched the 3P hitch as far as sway goes but seem unable to find any comments on the jerking. She asked me what I thought was more important and I said sway and she has given me the ok for the 3P come next year. Just looking to see if it may help this situation any. Thanks in advance.
