Tow/Launch a 20ft pontoon or a 17ft fishing boat all the time with or Class A
Dirt ramps or paved ramps never an issue with launching or retrieving the boats
Slow down and watch what's happening it's not difficult at all

Launch the boat then drag the trailer back to the boondock site at the lake shore and walk back for the boat. Most times the boat is moored within 50ft of the campsite which allows the RV solar system to charge the boats trolling batteries

Please do not toss your defective Converters / Inverters / etc. in the trash

I appreciate all the wise input. I will certainly pick a calm, uncrowded day for the first time I launch our matching Honda Aquatrax PWCs. I think it will be important for me to place chocks on the ramp for failsafe, stay in the driver's seat, and stay in close communication to the DW and others spotting and launching the PWCs.

Please continue to add any advice or pictures from your personal experiences.

One thing to your advantage is the long overhang behind the rear wheels. This gives you a lot of side to side correction, without having to make dramatic turns with the RV. First time I did it, I started with the trailer at a 90 degree angle from the back of the coach. Just turned the wheel and backed up, There was enough swing of the rear of the coach so the trailer went almost straight backward. Never had to pull forward to correct.
