An Andersen shouldn’t ever be considered if a WDH is needed. It isn’t one.

Seriously? The Andersen is a great WDH in the proper applications. In applications where there is a high tongue weight and a lot of redistribution is required, then the Andersen is not the best choice. However, for many applications the Andersen is an outstanding choice. It's worked great for me over the last 6 years.



Numbers.

Opinions ain’t worth much otherwise.

Very likely your rig also in need of help.

There are formulas which predict how WDH works. Basic engineering. Meet them first.

Anything that makes the day on the road easier is worth the trouble. Hitch rigging isn’t met with success by even 3% of owners.

Start over with what you have.

That is your opinion which is worth as much as you say it is. Where does your 97% failure rate come from?

Numbers:
Without WDH-rear down 2”, front up 1”
With WDH- rear down 1”, front up 1/4”
I guess it’s just magic.
