I don't know why it's a "lite" model. It's not that light at all. When I bought mine, I weighed it right from the dealer with no load, it was right at 11,500 ish empty. Loaded I'm probably 12,5-13k. Pin weight was right about 2k on the nose unloaded.

Great real world weights for Fifth Wheel Joy to consider...

I pull mine with an 08 ford f350 dually with 4:10 gears. It pulls with ease and I hardly know its behind me. I dont think u would have much trouble pulling this fifth wheel with a 3/4 ton or a single wheel axle unless u were in the mountains a lot. Only reason I got a dually is because my truck isn't my daily driver so I wanted a dually so I could pull anything.

Help! Have no power to our landing gear in 5th wheel 346qbud Salem Hemisphere. Can't unhitch trailer from truck without it. We checked all GFI and reset. Checked and reset all circuit breakers in panel below fridge and checked inline breaker in battery compartment. Trailer is plugged in to house power and everything in trailer works except for landing gear. Anybody have any other ideas?

Ok. Found it! And for any one interested the fuse is a 30 AMP and is located in the front compartment in the middle over the compartment door frame. Hope that makes sense to any who have to find it.

I had the same issue with my 346QBUD but if you have a remote for the slides and landing gear, the remote will work. (Or it did for mine). I am still having an issue with my fuse blowing when I use the switch but no issue when I use the remote.
