Once you pass the 10-11k threshold, tongue weight, payload etc. what does it matter? When the engine/drivetrain is maxed out at 10-11k what does the payload even mean? That was the point of the...

I may look into that. That said, I spend months in a campground in FL from Nov. to May. I just have CenturyLink come in and give me a hard wired (no need to worry about "flaky" wifi) link that...

I don't drive a diesel but I totally agree that they are needed in many applications. Javi makes a good point. IF I follow my own rules and require a diesel if/when I exceed 10-11k then what point...

I always drive 4 wheel drive vehicles. Moving from a 4x4 1500 to a 4x4 2500 isn't much difference. Depending on what you get you WILL have a harder time parking but you will quickly figure out what...

Are you thinking 30' behind the truck (the 5th will have maybe 4' over the bed) or 30' total length? The Cougar 1/2 tons have some that are right at 30' and the 30RLS comes in at about 34' and some...

IMO skip the 1/2 ton trucks....all of them. None of them, including the Ford, are really built as a "tow" truck. With an 8000 lb. trailer you are beyond the ability of a 1/2 ton to be able to tow...

Having owned and towed with 2 Ram 1500 5.7s I can attest that the 3/4 ton is by far a better choice for an 8000 lb. trailer.

Have you looked at the specs for towing with a 14 year old Escalade vs the trailer you have? I suspect you might be enlightened if you choose to look into being safe.

You have a lot of issues that I would correct.

102k on the truck with OEM shocks/struts and towing a trailer? No way.

Haul Master (Harbor Freight?) 10k hitch with "add on" sway control? No....

I hope, and I'm sure, you will have a great time. We spend quite a bit of time in Destin but not in the RV; we stay at the Emerald Grande resort and we really like it. Hope you have a blast! They...

Just be "aware" of the sub. One of the most irritating sounds in existence are the folks running around in 20 year old cars with a $50 sound system and a $200 sub thinking all the booming and...

I'm 'sayin..."Whaaaaaat's the point?" I see on only negatives and they've been pointed out. Looks to me like that contraption would turn a fun towing experience into "not so fun".

As far as rains, for us, the jury is out. I talked to the Clam folks and rain was not an issue. After erecting it I'm thinking, barring a flood, it will be fine. I think others on the forum have...

I use it on the entire trailer and I think several others do as well so that's why you've seen so many mentions of it. It is a bit pricey if you're looking at the spray bottle or gallon, BUT, it...

Replace the LED. They go out from time to time generally flickering first. I have had them smoke and quit. Depending on the type of fixture hopefully you can just unplug it and put in a new one.

I've not encountered your issue but I'm curious to see what the responses are. I'm not aware that a brake controller can direct current to individual wheels so I may learn something.
