Dryer sheets and all those "folk remedies" don't cut it. The only real way is to get right under your trailer and plug every little hole with steel or brass wool and spray foam. It's much easier if...

An F150 is easily able to tow that trailer so there's no need for a 3/4 or 1 ton truck. A properly set up WDH and properly loaded trailer would have given you years of great towing.

Anyway, Ford...

I've never seen a fresh water tank drain that looks like that. The only ones I've seen are those small dinky white valves that only let out a small amount of water.

6000 miles seems like a lot of mileage to worry about a "break in" period or to expect something to be burning off at this point.

Yep. We use our little table and grill all the time and it's over 4 years old.

Dangerous? What's really dangerous is bad anonymous info based on nothing that's given out on the internet.

I'm not sure about the Acadia as a tow vehicle for anything other than a pop-up.

Any front wheel drive unibody vehicle is usually not a very good tow vehicle for a high sided trailer in my opinion.
