I will do that when the warranty expires next May.
Are you sure that's all? Did the frame get modified between model years? Axles? Tires?
I only ask because I overloaded my fifth wheel over 2 years of fulltiming. I was never over axle ratings and had upgraded the tires. I ultimately buckled the frame. There was no 1 single thing that I could do to upgrade the capacity- everything worked together.
