Newbie shakedown trip

We just got this, new to us, V-Lite 30 wfkss. It's our first RV. We did a 2500 mile round trip KC to Colorado to enjoy some fall colors. We had a blast and just love the floor plan. During the chili nights we had to cover some floor registers to try and force a little warm air to the bedroom register, very little air flow. A small ceramic heater would have been nice. Pretty happy overall with the performance, however I noticed some sway issues during high wind and with 18 wheelers passing. We always had dry tanks while towing and it was just the two of us (plus the dog). Maybe a little sway is just a fact of life but I hope not. I located a cat scale nearby so I think I will weigh it and maybe make some adjustments to the Equil-i-zer hitch. I have already found a ton of good advice on this forum and look forward to all the resources here.

A little space heater is really nice to cut the chill where you need it.

Is your truck/camper level with each other.
The hitch may need some re-adjustments to combat the sway that you are getting.
