When I went from 1500 to 2500hd I had to lower the shank on one trailer. I didn't have enough adjustment on the other trailer and had to buy a new shank.

Pull out the manual and 'program' the WDH for the new TV as if the WDH were band new.

It might work OK with the new truck (if the hitch height were close). But you will be much happier and much more confident when you KNOW your whole rig is set up properly.

My tongue weight is 950 lbs as weighed so we're very close in tongue weight. I have the 2 1/2 with the OEM adapter and there is quite a bit of play or slop. Not sure how to rectify that.

My 150 receiver was a little loose so hope this won't be worse.

Also, I assume that your F150 has a 2" square receiver pin box, I believe the newer F250's have a 2 1/2" square receiver pin box (depending on body style). If you plan to use the OEM supplied 2 1/2" to 2" insert adaptor, you may want to confirm the weight rating of the insert adaptor.

My F250 came with a permanently installed insert bringing the receiver down to a 2 inch size. I was a bit confused abut it at first as I have always seen the aftermarket hitches with the removable insert.

When I was considering a new 2016 F250 last year I found that a F250 in the "Super Cab" body style (w/6'-6" box) came standard with an OEM receiver with a 2" pin box......, all the other 2016 F250 body styles came standard with a OEM receiver with the 2 1/2" pin box.

Had I gone with the F250 Super Cab I would have replaced the standard OEM 2" receiver with a new OEM 2 1/2" receiver.

I didn't like the slop with my GM OEM insert adaptor (2 1/2" to 2") in my OEM 2 1/2" pin box either, plus using the insert adaptor "derated" my OEM 2 1/2" receiver ratings.

I upgraded my Reese WDH 2" draw bar (shank) to a 2 1/2" draw bar that also accommodated my existing ball mount....., the slop was eliminated and my 2 1/2" OEM receiver ratings were maintained.

2nOZ..., I'm not sure if Anderson WDH has a 2 1/2" draw bar (shank) to change out your present 2" draw bar.
