First timer to RV

Don't accept 'it is OK'. More than likely your unit is going back to the factory. I have to wonder if that damage was somehow caused after it was built. There is some questionable work coming out...

Until you install one you can just disconnect the negative cable. I did that for a couple of years before I broke down and bought a Marinco switch, about 20 bucks. Screws to the top or side of the...

With a 7500 GVWR, 4300 RAWR and 1600 payload that is a pretty stout tow vehicle. GM is smart IMO for putting a lower tow rating on it since more often than not it would be loaded up with passengers....

Sway is trailer oscillating back and forth. Push is when wind hits your trailer and you feel it with your truck. Can even move your truck sideways along with the trailer with strong gusts.

You are probably looking at axle ratings, but not sure. Minimum 3/4 ton F250 or 2500HD. The website would be closest, but there should be a sticker with the ACTUAL dry weight and cargo capacity...

You are feeling push, not sway. Push is what most people experience and call it sway. The trailer will put forces on your truck and the Propride won't change that dynamic.

A max payload in a towing table is not the same as the payload on the yellow sticker.

Maybe the verbiage you referenced is why yellow sticker payloads are always lower than max payload values.

Locals are location specific, not device specific. It appears the Pro replaces 129 with 61.5, but I don't see that it has the full eastern arc.
