You will need to install a lift to extend the lengths of the hangers.
I have seen plenty of threads with rectangular steel tube welded to the bottom of the frame to increase height. Usually with cross bracing.
Fifth Wheel and Travel Trailers forum should have more info.
You will need max payload and max towing options on that F150.
Open the truck door and check if you have 8,200 GVWR.
Yes you will need a sway control weight distribution hitch.

Controller is the isolator. No harm will come from starting the generator.
No harm either from running the main engine to run on down the road.
No worries night or day.
Worst case the charging system may trick the solar controller to drop into float. Still no harm done.
The actual rating is probably part of the panel model number.
Post it here for interpretation.
BTW when my 55 amp WFCO failed I replaced with a 35 amp. Works just fine. I went with 35 because there was no 25. Although converter mostly stays off now with solar keeping the battery charged. If you want to recharge from a small 1000 watt generator I recommend 40 amps or less.
This goes contrary to your request... However I have found 101N over the GG bridge to be fairly easy if just driven slowly. And no toll going North. :)
Nice place on the coast to catch your breath before you cross:
How many batteries? Do you expect a fast charge to minimize generator time?
Any special high draw 12v load to need more than 40 amps or even 60? (such as tank heaters)
I don't really recommend PowerMax as it does not hold absorption voltage and leaves you slow charging at 70%+.
Since low power use may help... here is a hot water circulating system that I installed. Pump runs about one amp to keep the pipes happy from the propane heated water. Save water too with instant warm/hot at the faucet.

Now we are getting somewhere. For float service set the supply at 13.30 volt in normal conditions and let it sit. For fast charge set to 14.8 volts and give the timer a twist from 30 to 180 minutes depending on level of discharge. (about 10% to 50% discharged respectively)
I am not an expert on Megawatt so now everyone can jump on me with corrections. :B
Not sure how the meter fits in.
I like my GY Silent Armor. Ran good for a little over 70,000 miles. Now on second set.
OEM was Wrangler AT/S that were also great and lasted just under 90,000 miles.
I plan to go GY All Terrain when the time comes.
