Most do a little, but you will want to re-adjust it once you have your TV/TT under "loaded" conditions (ready to camp). Check that your RV dealer gave you all the installation/adjustment documentation for your Husky. The documents will also identify what Husky components should be lubricated occasionally.

I read somewhere that if you put Vaseline on it that it makes a little more quieter. Not sure I'm ready to do that cause of how the arms work to keep the Trailer straight etc.

Jeeper,

You may have seen the reference of using Vaseline when a Reese HP Dual Cam WDH is used. Reese recommends the use of a "little" Vaseline over the Cam surface in applications of heavy tongue weights to minimize wear and noise.

I've used Vaseline on my Reese 'Cam' surface for years, swear by it I have a 1,300lb loaded tongue weight).

Fast Away E2.

I wish I had my Reese Dual Cam back from the old camper.

Fastway E2, and I am coveting an Equal-i-zer... With my E2 and round bars, I'm right at the maximum, and that's not a comforting feeling. (1000/10000 hitch 960 TW)

I also use vaseline on my friction points and the hitch doesn't make a peep and works just as well as without. I have marine grease on the rest of the lube points.

Reese with two bars and each have 9 links of chain. I use 7 links because that's the way the dealer set it up. We also have a friction antisway bar. I believe is Reese as well.

We just bought a second trailer and I bought an EZ LIFT from Camping World. I didn't want to keep changing the settings on our hitch for the Jayco. The Jayco sits a lot higher than the trailer we just bought.

We have an Andersen No-Sway WDH. I don't think anyone else has listed it above. It is manufactured locally in eastern Idaho. It seems to work well, but I haven't used a different system for comparison.
