Reese strait line/ dual cam hp

Just bought this product and haven't completely installed. Reviews are great wondering if anyone has on there trailer? Feedback? Recommendations on installation and setup?

As always thank you for your time.

I have one and it works great. Dealer installed it and set it up on our Tahoe when we bought the TT in 2014. For the 2015 season, I bought my Silverado and had to set the hitch up myself for the new truck. It took a little time to get it all right, but I followed the Reese instructions, everything came out great.

Awesome. Thanks for feed back. How big is your TT? They say this really helps for the longer and heavier campers. Mine is just about 39'long and gross weight is 10,750.

Lou,

Best thing to do is take your time! Measure once, and drill twice!!! Lol In all seriousness, measure twice now even three times before drilling the cam brackets!!! Take your time, read the instructions, and set aside enough time so your not rushed. 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!!!

My 26BH is nowhere near as big as yours! Maybe some others with larger TTs will chime in...

Installation not worried about there a ton of videos on YouTube and e-trailer etc etc. instructions are straight forward. I have towed this camper all year last year and a Jayco 314 BHDS which is slightly smaller (600 lbs lighter) for years prior with my 09 Nissan Titan. Payload on Titan is just under 2100lbs. Dry hitch weight is 860 and I have never had problems with the 1200 lb trunnion bars. Truck max tow weight which always surprises everyone is 10,500 lbs or 10,100lbs Ibforget which. So in theory if I ever max out cargo weight in camper I will be over my TV gross weight. I also installed air bags with a pump just so I can totally be level... Kinda overkill. Most I have ever put in bags is 15 psi. Drive around at 5 psi. This was the biggest tow capacity on the Titan and was made for only one year. Dealer didn't believe it either until Nissan gave me the specs.

I had the set up. I spoke with Reese and all I needed was the dual cam hp. The rest had been set up already.

Well we have the 338 rets and its 39 foot long and about 10500 loaded. I just have a standard roundbar wd hitch that's 1400/14000 and a single sway bar attached and it actually pulls better and with less sway than my 32 foot one had

Tow is not an issue. I just get an occasional what I call a tail wag on highways. Nice thing about this is I had a friction bar which had to be removed to back up. With this system you just back up!! There's no friction sway control anymore.
