RW 8311ss: picking up Friday!!

Upgraded from our 1996 RW signature pop up to the new tt. Platinum pkg., loaded. Can't be happier. Thinking about upgrading tt wheels to D. Upgrading TV wheels before pick up. Pulling with a 2008 sierra vortec max. Prob going to upgrade to a 3/4 ton soon. I've downloaded a few pdi checklists. Any recommendations or anything I need to have before first trip in a few weeks. Definitely getting a surge protector off the bat. Thanks in advance.
~ happy wife

I've been researching and reading all the threads on the wheels, great info. There's so much we need to buy and so much more that we want. Thank you.

Mrs Jennifer w one big suggestion would be make sure u get a good weight distribution hitch. I went cheap and now I'm looking to invest in a quality hitch setup due to white knuckle driving

Thanks. The dealer is giving is an EZ lift hitch and we are getting a sway control as well. Not sure of this is a good one. Will be looking more into it in case we need to get a different one.

If it's a eaz round bar I would suggest you ask if they carry equalizer or blue ox. I'm in a situation where I took a cheap hitch and now I'm looking to upgrading due to the performance.
