Please note, like with any WDH proper installing and adjustment is important for optimum performance. Here are a couple tips for the Strait-Line installation:
* Confirm all set-up dimensions before drilling into the TT A-frame.
* Proper torque is required with Reese supplied fasteners, so a torque wrench is required (don't guess).
* If possible, use a C-clamp to hold the Reese Frame Plate tight against the TT's A-frame bottom and side surfaces before drilling. You want the Frame Plate to be tight against the A-frame surfaces once the thread forming screws are tightened.
* Pay special attention on how the chain is attached (via U-bolt) to the Hanger Bracket, and also the orientation of the Hanger Bracket when mounted to the Cam Arm. NOTE: Depending on Reese Dual Cam version the Hanger Bracket could be a flat plate, or
have a slight bend in it...., they are assembled/mounted differently.
* Once everything is installed/adjusted, check for component inferences. Take your TV/TT to a parking lot and make a normal TV turn, stop, then get out inspecting for proper clearances (no binding, etc.).

Hope this helps.
