Shot this today towing my camper, but my math may be flawed. Picture of tonight’s 25lb bass to follow.

Yep, I95 Southbound, which we all know is downhill in that direction. Look at any map.

How often do you have to drain off that tank?

I try to avoid I95 south, I live north of Washington DC and I can't compete with the tall tails that emanate from Capitol Hill! I did go thru WV once and between Squash pushing the trailer and the Moth Man pulling the truck got great fuel milage

I try to avoid that area as much as I can, unless I’m going through there around 2am. But when I must drive through, I do it with my eyes closed using passive sonar. 24 years on subs and it worked fine for me there.

Traversing DC, especially NE DC at 2 AM, you might want to bring along some of the weaponry to! And thank you for your service.

Attached is the pic on our way up near Syracuse, NY. it was a noticeable difference in towing and just felt more stable... While I probably won't lease a diesel I'm def going with a 3/4 ton truck when my lease is up. As discussed on this thread, I feel more safe with the 2500 vs 1500 with the family. I def notice that it's not as easy to maneuver the truck by itself vs my 1500, i.e. parking lots, turning radius, etc

Listen, you have a pinch noise dive on the trailer...have you sinched up the WDH to bring it more level?
I have the ole Husky with a sway control bar added and of course Loadlifter 5000's.
In fact this trailer pulls better than my 7k dry brick 2010 33' Springdale!...and my Outback is 2k heavier as well as 5' longer.Click image for larger version

I didn't change anything from when the dealer set up the wdh for my 1500, the ball on the 2500 is 1" higher. So should I raise the bracket that is bolted to my trailer tongue?

I would raise it one. Check it out see how that works.

Not a diesel guy, but, 2500HD over 1500 every time. Have 2018 Passport 2520RL, 5,000 dry, had 1500 silverado, traded up to 2500HD gasser, no comparison.
