Thanks for the welcome

Just bought my first RV this year so I'm really a newbie to all of this. I'm looking forward to picking up tips on most everything, especially sway control.

Thanks Mark

Watch this little video that was just posted. Keep your tongue weight at 10-15%.

Great example of the importance of proper weight distribution
