Getting rid of the Jerks!
I started full timing with a Dodge 3500 w/automatic tranny. I later bought a 2003 Dodge 3500 w/6 sp manual tranny. While pulling the 5er with the automatic, never felt the cracks in the concrete highways. But when using the 6 sp truck, I noticed every crack in the highway. It felt like a small tug every time the trailer came over the crack. Felt very much like fishing with a tight line wrapped around your finger. Got a Trailer Saver TS3 which fits into the bed rails in the pickup box, easy change over. Now don't feel a thing. Have been to Nova Scotia and then to Alaska. The TS3 really handles the bumps very nicely. It is good to look in the rear view mirror and see the hitch pin float up and down. Sure saves the fifth wheel frame. The hitch is pricey but well worth the money.
Good Luck and travel safely
