Thanks. TV is a 2015 f250 diesel. I'm sure it can handle it, but like I mentioned the dealer needs to get me the right hitch, and then it probably needs to be tweaked from there. I don't think they took the time to measure everything, etc. like in the equalizer manual...

Also, increase the tire pressure when pulling the trailer. I also recommend the Roadmaster Active Suspension. It improves the ride and dramatically reduces sway and side to side rolling.
Exactly what I was thinking. I was going to adjust it today, but figured it was pointless since I'll be swapping it for the 14000 lb rated hitch with 1400 bars next week. Once I get the proper hitch I will take the time to get it dialed in. Our maiden voyage destination is 9 miles away, so we should be good for that drive with the current setup.

Great trailer...we have the 318 version of it. I have air-lift airbags in my F250 and it really helps with the sag.
