New Member and New To Forest River

Hello All,

I have just purchased my first Forest River RV, A 2015 Sandpiper 376BHOK. This will be my first 5th wheel also, we upgraded from a 2014 Jayco Jay Flight 32BHDS.

I am purchasing a Demco Hijacker 18K Autoslide hitch, under bed mount style.

I am towing with a 2012 F-350 CC SB 6.7 Diesel.

I am wondering if anyone has any advice for towing fivers for the first time, any issues with the 376BHOK, and any other advice please let me know

Thanks

Justin Rutledge

ps - also where to go to see all the short hand/acronyms for the forum

A belated welcome from Upstate New York, we have the same hitch in our GMC (you'll like it!), just got back from W. VA. with our new Silverback 29RE. Enjoy.
