I think a 2500 is too light for this rig. I think your total weight on the rig is around 16,x00 lb. Most use at least 20% for pin weight which is 3200. I don't think any 2500 has much more than...

I have knob for both cold and hot. My ideal shower temp is with the hot all the way on and the cold about 90%. Couldn't go much hotter if I wanted, but I don't like it scalding hot.

So I am unclear on how it works. You sign up and get some phone to use. Then is it used as a hotspot and you connect your router to it??

Another thing to consider when adding batteries. Going from 1 12V to 4 6V will add about 200 lb. to the front end (mostly on the hitch). If you are close to the weight limit on the truck, you might...

My 2013 tv didn't work almost immediately. The dealer said to just go buy one and bring them the receipt and they would pay X dollars. I think it was like $400. Worked for me.

I have used Michelin tires since around 2007. Very sturdy and last 40-60K miles (I can't remember exactly). I think 40K is low tho.
