That's a lot of trailer for the Titan. My 2014 Max tow Titan was 9300 lbs. towing capacity. But you can use this to get your tongue weights. Travel Trailer Weight Calculator | Safety Report
You can also look at Sherline tongue weight scales or google or you tube the bath scale method but you maybe to heavy for that.

I will try to find it, but over on RV.Net there is an extensive thread (may be a couple) concerning the installation and set up of the Reese DC system.

Hopefully you ordered the 1500lb bars. With a dry tw of 920lbs, depending on how and what you load, your tw is probably over 1200lbs, possibly 13-1400lbs loaded. We have the '16 Jay Flight 32 BHDS version, and our dry tw of 910lbs is ~1400lbs loaded, ready to go.

Is your tv the '09 Titan? IF so, how much cargo weight do you load in the bed, and how much do all the passengers weigh? You may be over the gvwr of the Titan by a fair amount pending what all you load and your actual loaded tw. What is the yellow payload sticker in the drivers door jamb state for your truck's payload as the truck left the factory?

Good luck!!!
Great links at bottom of your page!

The better value is that the straitline/dual cam hp is proactive. It prevents sway where the friction bar is reactive. Should check out on Reese website. Not having to take the friction bar off is a bonus. And it's relatively inexpensive to purchase. I had everything else from original set up so I just ordered the dual cam hp from Amazon for $166.00..

TY! You noticed them before I had a chance to post, check my signature links!!! Lol

When I have weighed, I went inside the last couple times and mentioned I needed to weigh three times total, so could I pay for all after? Was told no problem both times.


Good luck!!!

If you are just upgrading the Reese you already have to the DC HP, that is pretty simple to set up - instructions are on the Reese site for that too. It will just take a few ups-and-downs to center the cams in the bars. There is a chance that the changeover may require a slight adjustment of the links (or hitch head) after you change over. I would follow the instructions to check the front fender return height after changing to the cams, just to be sure it didn't change.

The Reese Strait-Line is a great WDH and has performed well on my TT for over 10 years.

One thing to note with tube style TT frames with loaded TT tongue weights of 1,200lbs or heavier..., check the torque on the four Frame Plate 1/2-13 thread forming screws OR the 1/2-13 hex head bolts periodically. The type of fastener provided by Reese will differ depending on "model/date-revision" of Reese Dual Cam HP purchased, as will the mounting instructions.

Refer to original Reese installation instructions provided with specific model/revision Dual Cam HP being installed for correct torque requirements.
