Fifth Wheel Street announced the release of its RV Tow Check 3.0 app for recreational vehicle owners, as well as RV and automotive dealers. According to a press release, the newest release includes two new user entry inputs for trailer weight ratings (TWR) and complies with the SAE J2807 guidelines.
Dave Gray, founder Fifth Wheel Street, reported that the latest enhancement allows users to enter fifth-wheel, gooseneck, and conventional TWR’s. This revision was advanced due to the recent changes in some automotive manufacturers providing more than three trailer weight ratings for the same tow vehicle.
“Considering that manufacturers are providing multiple TWRs for one tow vehicle, it became clear that the RV Tow Check app should be revised to allow user’s to input the TWR’s,” said Gray. “Entering the two TWRs will ensure maximum towing safety and an improved selection of towing combinations.”
The RV Tow Check app provides “a warning statement” for users encouraging them not to exceed the manufacturers TWR regardless of any gross combination weight rating (GCWR) calculations, the release stated.
Gray noted that the RV Tow Check app processed over 120,000 reports during 2016. To access the free web-based RV Tow Check app, visit RVtowCheck.com.
