    Thanks, don't really want to wait until it's a NEED. Still under 13,000 miles. Bought it mid-January, last 2018 on that dealer's lot.

    I would like to get the WDH dialed in as good as possible first. Then I think I will go with upgrading the shocks, although I don't normally do much upgrading to my vehicles. This F150 is our only vehicle (perk of being retired?), and I want the ride as comfy as can be while still having...

    I just walked out and put my 3-foot level on the driveway incline. Hard bubble off level. Had to raise one end over an inch to get it centered. Where my RV is parked, it's fairly level, but only long enough to get back wheels of the truck on the level.

    Yep, piece of tape on fender above the wheel well, with a line drawn across the tape as the spot to measure. Been trying to think of some place level. Neighbors are far apart, and none have concrete or asphalt driveways. Hell, nearest Walmart is 10 miles.

    That was empty trailer. Haven't measured wheel wells with loaded trailer. New driveway isn't level.

    ummmmm.....ummmmm......dunno where I got that number, but I just looked at Ford RV & Towing guide. Shows GCWR of 12700 for my truck. Brain bubble I suppose.

    So steering axel should be more weight with trailer and wdh attached? Hunh. Here I was thinking I was good because the wdh brought it exactly back to where it started. Whats your input about gross of 11180 and truck GCWR of only 9900? Apparently I need lots of education.

    Not sure we are talking about the same e2 WDH. Fastway doesn't list an e4 WDH.

    That's the problem, I don't know which will help the most. I've towed a few times, and had sway almost every time. First time was 70 miles from dealer to home, RV was empty. Tows 2 and 3 were 7-9 miles to and from campground. Truck and trailer were loaded, as we were selling the house. 3rd...

    Which would be the single best bang-for-the-buck-for-towing-RV upgrade, new Bilstein 5100 shocks, or new tires with stiffer sidewall? Only rear, or all 4?

    Due to other things happening in our life, we haven't been able to spend any more nights in our RV. The way things are happening, probably won't until after New Years.
