Michael, that you haven't had something tragic happed in your 750 miles maybe because you have been extraordinarily conscientious in loading your trailer and TV keeping it within it's capacity or it may be just dumb luck that may someday run out.  If it's dumb luck and it runs out and you are discovered to have completely disregarded weight capacity limitations, you may find yourself not only facing a civil action that will bankrupt you but also criminal charges.  If you want to put your own safety at risk, that is your prerogative.  Putting the lives of others at risk, whether your children or spouse, or other people minding their own business on the highway, is another matter.  Ultimately, you are responsible for the weight of your vehicle and for knowing what its limits are.  If you exceed them and it causes a crash, you are the one who will have to answer for it.
Never leave footprints behind.

Hi, when you raised the lower bed, what did you find between the under-bed storage area and the front of the camper? I suspect there is a trianguler-shaped cavity in there with some supports for the portion of the bed surface that are fixed. I've installed some hydraulic lifts for the storage area under that lower bed, but they are so strong that they are peeling the fixed portion of the plywood up. Need to get in there and add some more support.
