    Mike...I'm in the Lowcountry of SC so other than up and down bridges I've not put it to any real test yet. That said, I've towed it on a few 40mi trips and one 120mi trip. It does "ok". About 10-11 mpg. Bit concerned that I may be under-gunned for towing in the mountains of NC/SC/GA. Heard of others doing it but I'd want to tread lightly. Couple weeks we're going on a 150mi trip. Hilly area...not mountainous. If that goes well, we'll book a trip in the spring for the foothills.

    First shakedown I noticed a bit of porpoising. Wasn't real bad and since I'm new to this I didn't know if it was "normal". I had a local trailer specialty company dial in my WDH a bit and that improved things a lot.

    Try to be very conscious about safety. TPMS on truck and TT, mirror extensions, etc. I'm probably a PITA to those behind me as I go the speed limit (when towing).

    New truck and new TT. Will upgrade truck tires to LT's and replace the TT china bombs prior to hitting the 5k mark.

    Mike, I have a 2015 Ram 2500 CC 4x4 with the 20" tires (factory) and the 6.4 Hemi. We have a 2012 Salem Hemisphere 246RLBS 5th wheel. My truck is so high that our 5th wheel is nose high. Do you have this issue?

    One more thing on tranny solera. I just read back to one of his posts and had to comment. Almost spit out my morning coffee reading that one about MB telling him to go manual shift. I swear you can't make this stuff up. Later
