Help please! Hitch set up problem.
Background: when I first bought the truck I had Tinbren spring helpers installed because the ride was very bouncy while towing. I later found out my hitch was set up improperly for the TT I had at that time. 6 months later I bought a new camper and the dealership I bought the camper from helped me set the hitch up to the new camper by measuring the sag front/rear at the fenders.
Current issue: the truck is riding brutally rough when towing so I decided to go to the scale and see how it weighed out. I found the rear axle of my truck had 700 lbs more on it than the front. Evidently the Timbrens really messed up the sag measurements.
I added 2 more washers to my eaz lift hitch to max it out at 8 washers to tilt the head some more and it transferred 200 more lbs to the the front axle now there was 500 lbs difference.
My TT has a dry tongue weight of 775 so I thought my 800 lb spring bars were overloaded so I borrowed a set of 1000 lb spring bars from a buddy. The 1000 lb bars transferred 300 more lbs so I am down to a 200 lb difference between the front and rear.
Not sure what to do now. Reading the sticky on how to weigh your rig I see that anything more than 50 lbs is not good. How do I get more transfer? Any advice would be greatly appreciated.
