    Trailer sway with air ride

    I had 45 psi in the truck tires for the camping trip this past weekend. I followed IvoryHemi's setup and added one more washer (total 7) and raised the hitch ball up two holes. I had to raise the tongue jack a little higher to get the spring bars on. That change seems to have eliminated the...

    Trailer sway with air ride

    Six washers. I don't have a recent picture as I had dropped the ball one slot and added a washer in search of an improvement since this picture. The CAT scale is on the to-do list.

    Trailer sway with air ride

    The only thing that bugs me is the wiggle in the truck cab as a result of constant wind pushing on open highways and Interstates doing 60-70mph. The constant minor steering corrections and minor ab workout is sometimes fatiguing. I have done the WDH adjustments per Equalizer's instructions for...

    Factory trailer brake controller - can it work automatically below 15 mph?

    I am in the category of "dealing with it". I just try and ease into the slowdown and anticipate the jolt as I hit the 15mph threshold. Sent from my SM-N960U using Tapatalk

    How big have you towed? w/Pics no tricks!

    Nice truck. Grand Design would have been our 2nd choice. We went with a 2021 Shadow Cruiser 248RKS.

    What is this intermittent booming noise coming from the back?

    I have not done anything to address it. It has diminished over time. Sent from my SM-N960U using Tapatalk

    What is this intermittent booming noise coming from the back?

    This drove me nuts when I first got my Limited. Pretty much spot on at 39/40 MPH I would hear this drone in the cabin. +/- 1MPH from there and the drone goes away. I started using the drone noise to tell me when I was doing 40 MPH without having to look at the speedometer.

    Trailer sway with air ride

    I just noticed that the Equal-i-zer folks recently posted a WDH setup video that focuses on tow vehicles that have four-corner air suspension. Part of their video uses a RAM in their instructions. Very helpful IMHO. I need to run through this and likely make some adjustments before the next...

    Trailer sway with air ride

    I agree with the RV dealer hitch installation. Interesting thought on the bar tension as I would have thought the opposite. The sway I experience seems to be mostly with gusty winds. Not necessarily a white knuckle ride in every situation but much more vigilance and small steering corrections...

    Towing Without Tow Mirrors

    I have the K-Source Snap & Zap Custom Towing Mirrors - Snap On mirrors on my 2020 Limited for the same reason. They work great but are finger busters, especially when removing them.

    Third Tow with New Travel Trailer Coming Up

    New truck and new travel trailer first-timer. Tow #2 was not so much fun with 25-30ish MPH gusting winds during a 3.2 hour drive back home. Constant steering corrections and trying not to look at the back of the trailer doing some wagging. The weird thing is when I got back into my truck...
