Our conversation today is on steering stabilizers. Some seem to feel they make a significant difference while others don't.

Totally include the HW surge guard, we got the progressive industries one and I find it to give me good piece of mind that I'm not getting hit with a bad line when hooked up. Had it trip on our last campsite whenever you walked by the post and the plug moved.....! So, it was nice that it worked.
100% agree on the moving of the trailer hitch electrical - we had it moved (and the HW surge guard installed) even before we picked up the unit. The RV dealer usually installed a different surge guard unit, but I wanted the Progressive Industries one, so they ordered it for me....once the shop manager read up on it, he said they'd be recommending it going forward over the other ones.
Lastly - we just bought a TPMS (well, it was a Christmas gift from my mother) and had the dually stem extensions put on and installed the sensors. We have the TMT 507, and it was SO easy to set up and works awesome. We ordered directly from TMT, and they could NOT have been more helpful and friendly on the phone.
I've got a photo around here somewhere, I'll post it.
