Just have the OEM tires on the trailer - already checked and they're not Powermax.... The truck has BFG AT 'E' rated....

Still wondering about how hard to accelerate from a standstill though...

Baltimore is where the professionals are? LOL... Could've sworn it was in Calgary....

I just drive like I normally do except for speed. I lock the cruise at 100kph and go and as far as accelerating goes. I rarely jump on the gas hard and drive the same with or without the trailer.

Just go how you feel like going. Being stock you will not hurt it. As far as the boost thing, the numbers that were posted earlier are numbers you would see for a Ford. You Dodge will run 25-30 psi all day long. I will run 15-20 on flat ground out on the interstates. I might see 6-8 coasting.
