We have only pulled our 2016 28FQGDX Shockwave about 8 or 900 miles. I commented to my wife as we pulled out of the dealer's lot that is seemed to pull harder than our 31 ft fifth wheel. When we got home with it we run across the scales with it. It doesn't weigh anymore than the old trailer but pulls a lot harder. Brought our fuel mileage down 2 mpg also.
As it sits in our driveway I run a straight edge on the wheels, not too scientific, and found them to be quite a bit out of alignment. I want to hook on to it and make sure there is no twist or sidedraft on the wheels before I get too carried away with this idea but it's not looking good. Just hoping the dealer will take care of an alignment problem, too costly to not, considering wear on tires, bearing and extra fuel.
Be awhile before I get it to the dealer as we have about 6 inches of the beautiful white stuff on the ground as I type this.
