Hi Bandacoup!

What type of sway bars are using?

I'm sorry, I meant to say that we use the Equal-izer anti-sway system and we don't have a problem with our 3025W swaying.

I had exactly the same issue with the analog t-stat on my 3001w. The primary t-stat was analog, but the second (bedroom) was digital which has a much narrower operating range. I purchased a RVP 8330-3862 Coleman Mach Black Digital Wall Thermostat from Amazon (available other places as well) and the swap was 5 minutes and very easy to do. MUCH BETTER control of the AC for the main cabin now. Temp range is about 2 degrees instead of 7-9 degrees.

Mine go to 4 whether I'm pulling my windjammer or sunset trail 250rb. They seem to work well at that setting with a 2015 silverado.

The wife and I have a 2013 3025W windjammer and absolutely love it. The layout is exactly what we were looking for as we searched for about a 1 1/2 years. We knew what we wanted and the day we saw it. She came home with us. Our camping season isn't as long in Wyoming as we'd like but still it's fun to go and get out.

Bandacoup, I have a 2016 3001W and no longer have sway issues. I have a properly adjusted Equalizer hitch and rear air bags on my 2002 Ecursion 7.3.

Similar to others we use the Equalizer hitch 12000 in our 3029W Windjammer and pull it with a 2004 3/4 ton Suburban with absolutely no sway problems - even when passed on highway by big semis.

We are ready to trade our Windjammer for a 5th wheel. Traveled to Grand Canyon from PA on I40, up 89 to Utah, and back across I70 through Kansas. We are in Missouri now. We had some of the worst crosswinds traveling and sway was really bad because of wind. We had 22 mph wind gusts in Kansas and it was all we could do to keep the TT on the road even with brake controller set on 10. My husband had to drive with one hand on brake controller. When we travel north and south there are no issues. Does anyone else have this much trouble traveling East to West and then West to East? We have a 2016 3008W? We do love our Windjammer and it's very comfortable, but miserable getting to our destinations.
