XLR dust

We have a 2013 Forest River XLR 5th wheel toy hauler with a 12' garage , two axels. 37'7" long. Has any one else experienced that with 2 quads [1400 lbs] in the garage causes the RV to ride rough & sway. Also we have copious amounts of dust coming in via the living room slide out, as well as gravel . You thoughts please. B. Fox

What weight was the garage rated for ?
Do you have any scale weights for your loaded weight vs advertized GVW ?
Do you know what your pin weight is loaded ? Should be over 15 % of total trailer weight. with the 1400 lbs in the back this weight ratio may be way off, and hard to maintain.
Dust around the slide.
Are you driving with any roof vents open ?
If your vents are closed and your getting dust & gravel, get back to the dealer for a slide adjustment or seal replacement .

You're teeter-tottering. Need to distribute your weight a bit. If you bed/hitch can take more, put some more weight up front. If not, get an air bag/shock for the pin-box.

Like Skip said you need to go and get weights- empty, with quads and pin weight, both loaded and empty. It won't do no good until you find this out.

With the dust problem, is slide closing all the way, it may need adjusting.
