Claude,

When installing the Reese HP Dual Cam, the mounting location of the HP Dual Cam "frame plate" is important, confirm that they are properly located before drilling any holes.

Once you have the HP Dual Cam WDH mounted, it may take a little extra adjustment time to "dial-in" the WDH, but I'm sure you will be pleased with the towing results.

Look forward to seeing your new Reese WDH pics

Bob

Morning Bob
I finally got time to install my Reese Dual Cam and WD kit over the weekend. With some minor adjusting I am pleased with the way the TV/TT now seat. I went for a roadtest with it and found a difference right away. The real test will be in 2 weeks when we go camping. When I have the TT/TV hitched up again I'll post some pics.

Thank you
Claude

Claude,

Great to hear that the new Reese DC WDH is working out for you thus far, and that you tackled the install/adjustment on your own.

Bob

Hello Bob

Must say I'm very pleased with the new WD set up and with some tweaking it was a great relief not having to clamp both hands on the wheel.
Here are the pictures you asked for. Looking for to our vacation to Finger Lakes at the end of August. Thank you for your help. Happy Camping.

Claude,

Your pics of your WDH/DC look great, and assuming that your weight distribution to the TV's front suspension is correct, you should be good to go.

The only suggestion I might make is to route your E-brake cable such that it is routed on the same side of the WDH as the brake-away module......, or at least such that it doesn't have the potential of getting "caught-up" on anything. If it makes routing easier you can shorten the cable as well (of course allowing for required TV turns, etc.).

I'm sure you will experince enhanced TV handling of the TT when towing under less than desirable road/weather conditions.

Bob
