Setting up WDH on new trailer

Sorry , Another WDH question, This WDH stuff is a little confusing to me ... So anyway bought a new camper more storage in front.
Usually put the Griddle (27lbs) and Grill (28LBS)in the back of the truck, Does it matter if I put them in the front of the camper or keep them in the pick up bed "WHEN" (which is tomorrow morning) I set up the WDH for the new trailer. What would be the best route to go?
Thanks,...

Put them wherever you normally put them when you use the trailer.

Not enough to be concerned. After half a season of use and stocking, restocking is the time to fine tune. In the meantime close counts.

Setting up WDH on new trailer

I use this rack for storing our 22” Blackstone griddle and folding table. I know it is available on Camping World and Amazon websites for about $190.

Great product. Mine carries a Honda 2200i gen and a 6 gal marine fuel tank.
Had to lose the hard side propane tank cover and replace with a soft one. Can replace propane without removing the rack. Home made pvc frame for a custom zippered cover for weather protection.
Enjoy

Do you run into any issues with vibration while using the gen? I'm considering one of these (I have the Wen 56380i, which is a bit larger) but concerned the vibration might make sleeping nearly impossible when running it with an A/C. Thoughts?

No. Under the gen and tank is a 1” thick soft rubber mat from Tractor supply. Horse stall pad. The one with molded holes is softer and allows water to pass through easily.

Loading can change with that said on the initial setup of a WDH load your truck the way you plan to normally load it this will give you the initial measurements for the wheel wells a very important step to ensure correct weight distribution. good luck

While you're probably well past the setup stage at this point, for future reference I store the accessories that only get used when camping (like a griddle and grill) in the TT. Things I might need at the TV when I'm not camping (like 12V compressor and emergency cones and flashers) I keep in the TV. IMHO having things handy where they get used is a higher priority than worrying about how 55 lbs of gear affects the WDH setup. Put things where they get used and then balance out your WDH.
BTW, you'll vary the load on the WDH by way more than 55 lbs just depending on whether you head out with or without fluids in the tanks.
