Nice set up...
We have a 274dbh... I think they are the same minus some slight changes in floor plan arrangement.

I tow with a GMC 1500, Tow package, sumo springs, R6 hitch, and just added E rated tires. What kind of upgrades have you done for towing?

Next upgrade will be tires to 295/65/20 load 129.

Just got the truck last week.....2017 F350 with the 4.30 gears. I'm coming from a 2012 F250 CCSB with the 6.2 and 3.73 gears. First tow this weekend, anxious to see what kind of difference the 4.30 gears have. Also nice to get rid of the sliding hitch.

New truck moving the TT to a new parking spot

Wife didn't like it blocking her plants so I moved it to the other side of the garage. Pic is before I backed it in next to the garage.

First time hooking up the new TV to the TT. Set up the trailer tracking name and trailer assist system.

Looks good with the existing WDH settings. I was hoping not to have to change things. May be an inch or so front high but no way to tell till I take it to a leveled parking lot. My gravel/dirt drive is too uneven for even guesstimate accuracy My plan is a Sunday morning trip with TT to the nearby high school parking lot for accurate measurements. Based on my crappy driveway measurements, I might have to move the ball mount down one hole to the bottom of the stinger.

I found out my tailgate rubs on the stock manual tongue jack handle & does not come fully open. I'm looking at the 4500# Husky Brute power tongue jack but I'm waffling between that and two new bunk foam mattresses for similar cost. IF I get a power jack, I will have to make a tailgate bumper pad for it.

It loves fuel, but it tows awesome. Ride is better with the trailer hooked up and all six kids inside than it is empty.
