My 1st thoughts are your model year you posted is incorrect. Not a big deal because we know but the 1500 was introduced in 1988
Now for the other details, I would say the absolute best thing you can do is to take frequent breaks. Start out by stopping between 50-75 miles at 1st, even if all you do is get off stretch walk around for a few minutes then head back out. Build up a quickly as you feel you can to 100-150 miles and that should help a lot.
There are many folks who ride tank to tank and we have done it ourselves but a great percentage of people stop every 100-150 miles anyway to take a short break.
When we did our Iron Butt run, we stopped between 100-130 miles for fuel, drinks, and restrooms.
That was 1143 miles in less than 22 hrs and made it possible by stopping that frequently.
