Tow pack, does have tranny cooler. But it is in radiator, so cooling limited to radiant heat of cooling a hot engine also. One goes up then two are producing heat within close proximity. See the challenge they have? Is your Titan more then a couple years old, should it be flushed, could that help with the above?? And you do have more mountains then I do I'm South eastern pa .
I'll update after spring gets here. 😄

Slight sway is the only area I want to dial in somewhat, it is a lot of weight for a 1/2 ton, first pull with this set I had to much uplift with WDH. After decreasing that and raising bag pressure ( stiffened rear of truck) I will keep adj. those two areas and find the sweat spot, for this combo....Attachment 97487
Noticed you mentioned that your using 1K WDH. Can't speak for yours, but my 2015 272RLIS, basically empty weighted in with a tongue weight of a 1,144 lbs. Now I haven't loaded it in the rear much so I may lose some tongue weight once I do. Don't know if you weighted it yet, but just wanted to point out these units appear to be a little heavy on the tongue. Not an issue for my set up, but could be with 1K WDH.

Scotty, to confirm you are using 1000 pound bars ? And if yes are you pulling them hard or just a little when hooking up.
Thanks

We have had our 272 rlis for over a year. Great travel trailer. So far it has been trouble free. Changed out our 1000lb hitch for a Propride after pulling it around for several months. The Propride had made a big difference. No more sway and pulls fantastic. Your going to love the 272. Congrats

Love the Rear Lounge

Congratulations. We also just received our rear lounge in December, nothing quite as fancy as the Hemisphere but we absolutely love this configuration. The rear window makes such an impact on how large the coach feels. For a "couples" trailer it is better than the rear kitchen because it feels larger.

No I'm using the Andersen, no bars. Rear of truck only drops 1/2" at the most, then with the WDH loose the rear drops only 1" and tongue weight only increases 60 lbs. Now maybe I'm not distributing much weight back on truck, but doesn't seem to affect handling at all.

I just got the 272 and pulling it with a 2007 Nissan Titan, with the Firestone air bags. Seems to be a great combination so far!

Still pulling with my 06. I'm not interested in the payments for an upgrade ... Lol.
No issues from last year, drive her with respect all has been good. Don't forget in tow mode Nissan manual wants you in 4th gear.
