I have a 4 terminal power block on the floor under the watchdog. Will only take me about <5 minutes to just disconnect watchdog and reconnect to power block.
I got to do just a little more work but im ok with it

Is your Ram a 1/2 or 3/4 ton and how does it do? I have the exact same trailer and will be pulling it with my 1/2 Ram. It has the 3.94 differential and towing capacity of 11,200lbs.

Its a 1/2 ton. I have timbrens underneath. Upgraded front rotors and pads. Make sure you get your WDH re-adjusted if dealer put it on with trailer as is. On the average i carry 15-25 gallons of water total. My only issue right now is bounce and I about to readjust the hitch.
I have towed it from Delaware to Northeastern Pa with no truck issues.

No truck issues? That's good to hear. I'll be pulling mine from Illinois to Arizona this winter. I bought a new WD hitch when I bought the camper and they adjusted it to my truck so hopefully it will pull straight. I've been considering putting air bags on my truck but haven't decided yet. With the factory Ram integrated trailer braking system I wouldn't think I would need to upgrade my brakes and rotors but I'll see how it does on my maiden voyage.

Just take your time. Its a long trailer. I dont exceed 65mph at all. 18 wheelers will push like a sail.
Im on the fence about bags. I have to wait till WDH adjustment then that will decide.
Be safe and good luck
