The new ram's have coil springs so this isn't an option for me, i could have gotten a heavier coil spring but I prefer the air so when I'm not towing i let the air out and the truck rides like a car again

27rr tires

The tires are towmax and the rims are dexter, bought from an rv parts
dealer in west central Indiana. He kept the five old tires ( little over one
year old) and i got six new tires all were spin balanced. And he installed
them for about 525.00 total.
Hope that answered your questions.

Anyone with the electric leveling jacks having issues with them? When mine are down they don't seem to stabilize the trailer very well. I have tried putting blocks under them so they don't go down as far and it doesn't seem to help. Do the power jacks just not work as well as the manuals?

I would say yes they don't work as well.

Make sure the wheels are chocked? I push mine against them while TV is hooked up then put the other set in front - this keeps it nice and tight.
Or you can buy these...

I have the x chocks. It doesn't move at all front to front. Side to Side is a joke, it moves as much with the jacks down as it does with them up.

I use wood also under mine vs rubber pads and it seems to help, maybe you could use a couple more jacks under frame. I may consider these later on. Several neighbors when I was camping last year used these.

I added scissor jacks in front of the forward axle and with all six down I don't feel any movement at all. My toyhauler is similar in size to the 27RR but about 2,000 pounds heavier. Not sure if that extra weight helps. B
