We picked up our z1 211rd Friday and have been breaking it in at a campground near our home. I am not a novice tt owner but have been away from it for about 8 years. I never really looked into this before. But should the tongue jack be bearing weight when camping or should the camper jacks bear all the weight? Also how much pressure should one use when putting down the jacks/stabilizers?
One other question. Is the $500 solar charger for real for the furrion solar port? Are there more reasonable approaches being used out there?

it depends - do you have leveling jacks or stabilizers ? there IS a difference.
from MY TT and 5'er days,
the answer is yes, the tongue will have weight on it...
but only because mine (before the redwood 5er) only had stabilizers,
they were NOT intended to lift the rv, only to stabilize movement partly because the frame was not strong enough to allow lift too.
Now the redwood had a frame and levelers which were strong enough to allow it to lift the rv and not tweak the frame..
I have the same rig. Agree with JohnBoyToo and Woodwalker. Our TTs are low to the ground, but if you park in a spot where the tongue jack has to extend quite a bit, put blocks beneath it, so the jack doesn't extend as much. A long, extended jack is sure to wobble.
