I have had a 275 gallon water tank in the bed and that is over 2000 pounds of sloshing weight and it about leveled the truck out. Towed my current camper all through the hills of Virginia with no problem at all. Actually got a ticket doing 81mph up a hill. And my current travel trailer is only about 700 pounds lighter. Guess I will research a bit

It may or may not be a 2014 depending on when they switched from 13 builds.

If your talking about the fifth wheel hitch your dealer will adjust it all for you according to your bed rail heights.

Just so you'll know (and many people don't), the ST tires on your RV very likely have a Max Speed rating of 65 mph.

Lol... Not saying I was smart but the truck just kept pulling right up the hill. And I don't usually do speeds like that

My 335 is a 2014 and it came off the line about 3 weeks ago. If that's what you meant?

I just mounted mine last night and it felt like there was a solid backing board the whole way to the ceiling. I brought the bracket down about 8" to give it a bit of room between the top of the tv and the ceiling and all four screws bit just fine into good solid wood.

Took the panel off behind the water heater...low and behold the valve between the hot and cold lines was open. Shut it off and hopefully it was an easy fix! (fingers crossed)
