Hello all, Hope I don't confuse you too much!
Just bought a '07 Rockwood 8280SS 5th wheel. Towing with a 2011 Silverado 2500. The new Silverado's sit higher than my '05 Silverado did.
The trailer sits about 6" higher in the front when hooked up. We towed it 400 miles to bring it home, and it towed fine. Could hardly tell it was back there. No chucking (I had to look up that term since I'm not very well versed in RV lingo).
Common sense tells me that not being level is putting more pressure on the rear tires. Is this true? I'm just concerned with tire problems, not how it looks while being towed.
I have one hole left to adjust the fifth wheel hitch up in its frame, but this would require notching the fiberglass about 1" since it is close to touching now. Is that a bad idea?
I'm hoping not to have to raise the trailer and definitly would rather not lower the truck.
Thanks in advance for any help you can give.
