I don't see anything wrong with this, double chained tailgate, and its on a hill which probably makes it seem like its too heavy.

What I like about the whole setup is the somewhat matching color combination from tv to tt, also put wings on the tv get a run at it and I believe it will fly fly fly

Possible questions posted on forum by owner of above RV and TV......
1. Can't seem to find the switch for the slideout. Need help in locating.
2. Anyone know what the wire hanging down from the roof is for? Is that the satellite TV hookup?
3. Does anyone know where I can find replacement whitewalls? Don't want Chinese tires.
4. Thinking of adding Timbrens or Firestone airbags? Which should I go with? How much pressure should I use in the air bags?
5. All my decals have peeled off. Tried phoning Keystone. They told me to get lost. What should I tell them?
6. Why does everyone stare at me when they pass us on the highway?
7. Thinking of getting a diesel. Do you think this will help when going up hills? I seem to lose power part way up.
8. The dealer has offered to sell us a 6 year extended warranty. Do you think it is worth it?
9. What kind of polish do you use?
10. Have a mice problem. They are everywhere. How can I get rid of them?

New to RVing and need your help. Just picked up our RV from the dealer and can't wait to get out. We're very excited! Glad I found this site.
