RE: Dually towing TT

You can see my rig in the signature below. We do use the Equal-i-zer four point WDH with sway control. Is it needed? Maybe not but it doesn't hurt and it makes my wife more comfortable. It tows wonderful and have never had any issues in any and all conditions. beemerphile1, Thanks. We are taking a short trip in a week or 2. Only traveling an hour or 2 and will be mostly 2 lane roads at less than freeway speeds. Just going to have to feel it out a little bit. I agree it is probably not needed, but may add a little peace of mind on longer trips. Especially on interstates.

RE: Dually towing TT

I believe that the trailer sways, not the truck. Yes. However, I was looking for input from those that use a 1 ton dually, as their tow vehicle, so that I can get some input as to if there are less sway issues when towing behind a dually as opposed to towing behind a single rear wheel axle. I have towed TTs in the past with a 1500 and used a WD hitch with sway bar. I also know that too much trailer will "own" the tow vehicle in some conditions. Thanks for all the input.

Dually towing TT

Since I am towing a TT with my dually, I am posting here rather than the tow vehicle forum. Since 2004, I have only towed a "bumper pull" when pulling my utility trailer. Aside from that, I have been towing a 5er or goose neck horse trailer. We have just bought a 29ft TT with dry weight just under 4200#. Not concerned about weight distribution, but... ...for those towing with a dually, do you use sway control? Bringing the trailer home, I did not really notice any sway. Just a little "tracking" on road grooves. Thanks EDIT: Clarification...pulling home, the trailer was tracking a little bit, which I attributed to ruts/grooves in the lanes. Do those that use a dually to tow a TT, do you use a sway bar or any type of sway control hitch?

RE: TV mounts

I have called the sales person because I am missing some manuals and appliance info. There is 1 designated place on a wall for a mounting bracket. But there is one of these https://www.lw-eng.com/products/8/Black-KeBloc-w-HardwareKeBloc by the front bed and on the exterior. They have a groove across the top that appears is made for a rope to lay in. I am thinking if I want to put a TV there, remove this thing and put a real TV bracket. EDIT: Upon searching the above website, the "block" on the wall it made to slide a mounting bracket over top of it.

TV mounts

Our new TT has an inside and outside place to "hang" a tv. These hanger mounts appear that you use some sort of strap, almost like carrying a duffel bag. Have to say I have never seen this before. Is it really just hooking a strap to the TV and hanging it up?

Back to RVing

Sold the 5er about 11 years ago and been "camping" at horse shows in the LQ horse trailer since. Still dong the horse thing, but decided we need something else to do a little non-horse traveling. Got a GREAT deal so we now own a 2021 Jayco 264BH. Cannot wait to get back to doing some traveling.

RE: Flipping Axle

Kinda forgot about this thread. Never did the flip. Ended up with 2 broken shackle links. Bought a repair kit from eTrailer. The kit came with original length links and a set that was about 3/4 inch shorter. The shorter links raise the trailer a bit.

RE: Flipping Axle

Had 2 shackle links break. Turns out, I can get new links that are 3/4 inch shorter than original. Will lift 3/4 an inch +/-.
