We have towed a 30 foot 5th wheel from Phoenix to Chicago and back a couple of time. Also Phoenix to Austin TX and back. Our truck is a 2006 Dodge Cummins 3500.
Stopping at RV parks is nice, and you get to empty the tanks and get water, but it is time consuming getting in and out. Walmarts are great if you have a 1000 watt Yamaha or Honda generator. The 1000 watt will run anything except the microwave, a hairdryer, and A/C. I think the trip will take you longer than you expect. If you are going to be at max weight on the trailer, you should think tires. I got tired of buying tires on trips because you can't even get fuel without skidding one iof the axles and watching your tires leave rubber everywhere. Sometimes I wished I had a single axle dually 5th wheel. Now we have a Vibe 6501 which is gentle on tires. Seriously, Be conscious of your tires on the trip. Check them at every stop for bulges and tread loss. Have a safe trip.

There are several threads in this forum about what tools and supplies to take. Type tools in the search window at the top of this page, with the FRF "radio button" checked.

I always carry a good digitial multimeter and several 10' lengths of light gauge wire (maybe 18) with alligator clips for troubleshooting. A plug in 12-volt voltmeter is handy. I carry several square recess bits You probably already have these items.
