Hi, my wife and I just got a motorhome about a month ago. We are new to motorhomes and I have a lot of learning to do. That is why I joined this site. We got a 2005 Fleetwood Terra. It is a 27' P32 Workhorse chassis with the 8.1 engine. I plan to use it to pull our 26' enclosed trailer and race car to drag strips across the country. We also bought a Trailer Toad motorhome hitch which handles all the tongue weight. The Trailer Toad works great, but still have issues with the coach swaying excessively.
I've been reading the forum for several days and have already learned a lot and found a lot of good sources. Thanks, Rob Livingston.

Hi Rob,

Welcome to the Forum! You are right that this is a great place to learn. Check into a water pressure gauge and in line water filter for your rig. Can save you plumbing problems in the future. Both cab be obtained at Walmart for around $30.

This is a great lifestyle. Go into the search engine and enter swaying while driving and see what you come up with. There are a lot of threads on all items. The search engine will help you find them. Then just read until you find what will help with your sway issue.

Best of luck, Lynne
Love the sunshine and warmer weather!
