B&W 3000 Hitch/Duramax dually/Excel RSE match-up

Some of you asked that i post this information. I adjusted the hitch (recently installed) height and weighed the truck and Excel today. The Excel is very level with the B&W hitch set at the most forward and lowest position with the pin of the 5er adjusted to the middle position. There is ample clearance at this setting during hard turns. I have a truck bed/rv clearance of about 6 3/4".

Excel is 12'10" at the front air conditioner.

If anyone needs the weights let me know.

Nice set up, Twostep! How do you like your counter space in the RSE? Is there enough? It looks like a great layout to me, but the DW likes the IKE better.

Plenty of counter space for us. We opted for the shorter rig because we boondock lot and shorter is better when boondocking. Also like the layout.
