I'd like to know how your Titan handles that size trailer. I have an '06 Titan and a 21' TT

Did firestone airbags, using 1000 lb WDH, with just a little link pressure and 50 psi in bags. Truck settling too 1" below unloaded height.
Braking is awesome with electric brakes, it's almost better than empty. Acceleration is very good, maintaining speed is very fair, effected of course by grade. But better than expected....
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....Click image for larger version

Nice setup. My camper dry weight is only 3400 lbs but it pulls the back end of Titan a couple inches. Guessing I need to add airbags??

Yes air bags are awesome, can't believe I never had them on anything. My neighbor recently installed them on F-150. I came home and ordered them..... Unloaded ride is not compromised at all, I run 5 psi empty. Get ready for this this the net weight of this unit is 7420. Gross 9640.
First one bags are about 224.00 on line, takes 2 hrs to install......

You'll like it. I have the 14 RLIS. Looks like they switched the fridge and the stove. Took me a couple of pulls to get it sorted. Enjoy it now. If you have the dinette, do not forget to lower it before bringing the slide in. It will not clear the rounded part of the island sink.

Have you pulled over any mountains? If so how was that on your transmission gauge?

No really hard inclines yet, with camper. But have pulled a 24' sea ray of years. I've concluded that the dash temp gage is not completely accurate, and or over sensitive. For example I have run with a scan tool plugged into ob2 port, with live readings showing temputure readings, and while dash gauge climbed memory wants me to recall nothing more than a 10* rise on scanner..
On the topic of trans temp, I do have cooler and have done several drain and fills. Staying with nissan magic j, which is now s. Or vis versa.
Camper is parked , east cost here, so nothing planned now till weather breaks... I'll try to remover to post back after I get some miles under this set up. Or hit me back in the future.

Interesting. My tran gauge has climbed very high when pulling though TN mountains. If I have the factory tow package it has a cooler right? Or do have you added an additional cooler?
