Good info there. Only problem I see is it seems to muddy the water between the actual difference between neutral and ground. 99% of panels have the neutral and ground on the same bus.

I am still debating the virtues of tires. I have ran many different tires on all kinds of trailers hauling much more than the weight of an average camper.

I believe it is the regulator pinging, they all seem to do it. I have debated going to a larger quality regulator on mine for a while now.

I had a really sweet Xcab z71 with 5.3. I got rid of it because I felt the trailer would be a lot of strain on it. No question it would pull, but how long would it last?
