We have 2504s. We love it as well. The speakers are not very good. You have to put the stereo at almost full volume to get good sound when using bluetooth. The inside ones are decent. Enjoy!

New to RVing, Rockwood and my 2504s

Just finished installing the weight distribution hitch and boy does it help. Makes it feel as if the truck and trailer are working in complete harmony. Hopefully, it will help with gas mileage as well.

I'm glad to hear that the WD Hitch makes a difference. I bought a minilite 2304 last fall and have mostly stayed in Arkansas with two long trips to NY and Florida. I'm thinking about buying a 5000 pound Kirk hitch next week. Looking forward to that ride you describe!

We bought the one from Harbor Freight after researching them quite a bit. This seems to be as good or better than some of the 700 dollar hitch setups some hitch places try to sell you. It's rated for 10,000 lbs.

Unfortunately the only thing you can do to help with gas mileage is go slow. Don't ever go past 65 mph and that has more to do with your tires and safety than mileage. For best mileage most stay at or below 62 mph.

What kind of tires are on you trailer? Hate to be the bearer of bad news but there is an on-going problem with sub standard tires being put on the trailers by the factory. Search this forum for 'china bombs".

Good luck and have fun!

Oh, and it may be hidden in the photo but I didn't see the emergency brake cable from your trailer to the TV. There is one I hope. State law in most places.

I stay at 65 mph 99.9% of the time. It feels like a comfortable safe speed for me. Anything past that feels as if the trailer begins to take on a life of its own.

Not sure what the tire brand is, but I do know they are nitro-filled.

Noticed in the picture that you don't have sway control. For just a few $'s more it can be added & will help even more. Good luck & enjoy.
