Interesting Experience, Santa Fe Vs. Silverado
So I posted months ago when we were in the buying process about the ability of my then TV (2015 Santa Fe, 5000lb Tow Rating) to pull our modestly loaded prospective X23B/X23F. The X23B had a GVWR of 4995 so I felt good about that, but we went with the X23F, which while it has just about the same dry weight, had a GVWR of 5995.
I towed the X23F a few times with the Santa Fe, equipped with a Fastway E2 properly set up. It towed GREAT. No bouncing. Good power. Never felt like the trailer was acting cumbersome.
We shortly thereafter leased a 2016 1500 (1/2 ton) Silverado 4X4. All-Star edition, 5.3L V8, big boy.
Again, properly set up (per suspension deflection measurements and level-trailer hitch shank height) the E2 on this truck.
80% of the time it's ok. Power, obviously, is fine. But on some roads the front end still feels very bouncy, as if there's no WD installed.
Any other tips on setting up this E2? My current setup is:
-Shank set so trailer frame is level.
-7 Washers on the angle rivet
-L brackets in the 'factory' (center) position.
Would helper springs or air bags in the rear of the silverado help?
