Pulled my first load with truck....
Well I have had my truck for a little over 2 months and finally got to pull my first real load. I hauled three pallets of landscape stone. Each pallet weighed 3,506 lbs so 3,506 x 3= 10,518 lb was the total weight on the trailer. I don't know my empty weight truck and trailer(regular cab f350, 20' tandem axle gooseneck) but I am guessing the load plus truck and trailer was in the neighborhood of 21,000-22,000 lbs. Truck pulled just fine, I turned the SCT off but I had plenty of power. Round trip was 110 miles and I got 10.9 MPG's and that was runnning 65-75 mph.
