25 pack 12 questions for newbie

hello all,i just purchased a 2019 25 pack 12+ and have a couple questions.first is when I mount my tv to the tv backer board above the fireplace do I remove it when towing? also what are you guys using as a weight distribution/sway set up and hauling 1 or a couple 950 lb Harleys? I have a equalizer 4 point but that thing is awful trying to get the correct set up to keep sway away.i am towing with a 2019 ram 2500 with the 6.4 hemi and 3.73 gearing.thanks for any helpful tips.

I remove the TV mounted in the Bedroom when underway. I use a mount that allows the tv assembly to be slid out of the wall assembly without any tools. Just slide it up and out then lay it on the bed. I think I use this one:

I don't use a WDH but my truck doesn't require one up to the maximum 2000lb tongue weight so I can't help you there but I'd be careful with loading two Harleys in the trailer...just filling the fresh water tank with two bikes would put you over the weight limit for cargo capacity on your trailer.

I always left the tv on the wall when travelling, never had an issue.


I used the Equalizer hitch too and loved it. Take your time setting up per the manual and it will work great, I never had sway issues, I was pulling with a Chevy 2500 diesel.

I've got the same trailer, we went on a 3300 mile trip to South Dakota over the summer, I also have a equalizer 4pt hitch, it did a good job, but I still got pushed and had some sway by the semi's, after a 600 mile day I was worn out, I decided to bite the bullet and order a Propride hitch, its sitting on the garage floor waiting on the install, everything I've read and heard from talking to people say its a dramatic difference, so we will see soon. I bought two more of the tv mounts that was installed in the living room but only have a 32inch on them, they handled the trip good. I'll come back and give an update once the hitch is installed and a good test run has been done
