Sorry to take so long to answer, but we were on a short "shake down" trip for the new (to us) Excella 30 footer. All went well with that, except for a defective check valve on the cold water side of the water heater. Hopefully, I can somehow access it without removing the water heater, it's really close quarters there.
As for the AirSafe, yes I still use it, and it did get a real test with the 36' Open Range, that we had for a couple years. The Open Range, (SOB) had a tongue weight of 1,350 pounds, (I weighed it), and the weight of the trailer the way we usually loaded for a trip was in the area of 13,000 to 13,500. It wasn't a lightweight by anybodies imagination! I had to carry 75 to 80 psi in the airbag of the AirSafe, and put more tension on the Reese DualCam WD, than I ever used before. Sway in cross winds was intense until I got the tension on the torsion bars right. After that everything was acceptable.
The Dodge handled the SOB OK, I was getting (depending on wind and terrain) 10.5 to 11.5 mpg.
Big difference with the 30' Excella, on the trip we just returned from, I average 14.5 over 400 miles.....
We're planning a long trip this summer for a couple months with a big circle from Lower Alabama, to Seattle, and back across southern Canada, or the northern U.S.
Maybe somewhere along the line we'll have the opportunity to meet.
Old age is coming at a really bad time!
