Well we got great news. Our 27rlws with emerald package has arrived at our dealer. Had a quick run through and we are very impressed. He will get the pdi done next week and will give us a thorough run down on it. Our 2013 Salem Cruise Lite sold today as well. Got to get our first trip planned likely a weekend close by to get our feet wet. Our second trip may involve a few thousand miles of travel.

First thing you do is remove the water filter and bypass it. Trust me when I say it could fail at a very bad time. I sleep soundly knowing I have an outside filter now.
Enjoy it as we do ours.

How well has the Equalizer 4 point hitch performed for you? We have a 2011 f150 crew cab to pull our 2014 27rlws. We had the E2 hitch which had been transferred over from a 24 ft TT. Last summer we took a 4500 mile journey and could only go about 50 mph because of sway. Yesterday we upgraded to the 4 point system so obviously haven't had a chance to try it out. Just curious as to how well it has performed for you.

Other than the noise it makes creaking around turns, it performs wonderful. We pulled our 27RLWS with a Ram 1500 4X4 crew with a 5.7 hemi and had no issues with sway at all. We have since traded that truck for a Ram 2500 4X4 6.7 diesel crew with with a 3.42 rear end and boy that did it just right. No sway at all and no effects of big trucks passing by on the interstate highway. It's a heavy hitch and remember to snug the bolts on the hitch on a regular basis. They have been known to loosen up from time to time. I have a the right size sockets to do the job and keep them in the bed of the truck. You need to check the "L" brackets on the trailer as well and make sure they are snug.
Enjoy that hitch as the only other hitch to have is the $3,500.00 Hensley hitch. It's quite obvious why we didn't go with the Hensley, $$$$.

The Anderson Hitch WILL NOT work on heavy tongue weights like the 27RLWS. It will not transfer enough weight to the front suspension. With a F150 or our 1500 for sure it wouldn't have done what it needed to do. They are for lighter trailers and tongue weights.

Keep your speed UNDER 65 mph as those are "C" rated tires. Max psi is 50 and max speed is 65 mph.

Hitch it up and enjoy.

We have an issue with our stereo. When you plug the ipod in, only half of the speakers work. Has anyone else had this issue?

I have only used the Bluetooth feature and it worked on all speakers. Did you check the balance and fade settings?

When we received ours, the speakers were plugged into the wrong ports on the TV. The employees at Flagstaff are not rocket scientists and it's possible some wires are not done correctly.
