Exactly the same problem on mine--solution same as golf bears....still have some problems lining the notch and peg up, but the window stays up once the rubber gasket is out of the way.

Sorry to see you go, altho you might just check back now and then for some info. I will see if I can get your account deleted, but you could just let it go and not worry about it.

Well, we traded for our '15RSSA about 15 months ago--on the way home, we weighed it when empty, no water but propane. We had transferred our generator from the old one.

One other thing--Light Truck (LT) tires ok for trailer, but Special Trailer (ST) not for use on the tow vehicle. Mickey Thompson tires probably are mostly LT type.

Interesting problem. My '10 450 worked fine with the '05 electric brakes; the same truck worked fine with the '15 EOH brakes; my '17 450 works correctly with the '15--go figure.

Kind of a vague question--on the tow vehicle or on the trailer? Usually if a tire is rated for the weight, fits the rim and the wheel opening, should be ok.

No help to extend the hitch release--still have to pull the locking hitch pin. My only help is a stepladder if I can't get up on the tire.
