They are P rated Goodyear SRAs. .. came with the truck and I've already thought some on that but hope to run them a little more than 15k lol. Checked cold pressure before I left.

Is your trailer level or a little tongue down? I'm having the same problem with mine. Granted it's twice a heavy. I have two friction sway controls and it still wags it's tail on the interstate. At PDI everything looked fine but the area they set it up on wasn't really all that level. Now when I look at it on a dead level surface it looks a little tongue high. That will definitely contribute to sway. I bought a straight line dual cam and I'm setting it up tomorrow. That way I know it will be right.

Mine is dead level when hitched. I just checked and ball height is 19" on the truck and top of the coupler is 21" which makes me think the spring bars are picking up the back of my truck two inches. Leaving campground in the morning I will double check hitched.

And the trailer tires? Is their pressure up to spec?

Yep checked them as well. Think it was 50, read it off the tire info sticker on the trailer. And checked my gauge against two others and the TPS in the truck.

Unless I'm way of base I believe that if your trailer is level and the top of the coupler is 21" and the top of the ball is 19" the your hitch head is too low. I believe the top of the ball should about 3/4" to 1" higher than the level coupler. If I'm wrong someone please correct me.

Most WDH I've seen tell you to add a little to the level coupler height to compensate for a slight squat. My recommendation is to NOT take it back to the dealer and read the instructions for the hitch and do it yourself. It does sound like it's strung a little tight. Also...are you positive it's actually sway and not just getting pushed around on the road? Mine runs perfectly straight, but a good gust of wind will shove me to the side..truck and all.

When I was driving here two days ago we had 15-20mph wind. I couldn't stay in my lane. Going 52 max.

That'll do it, but is it the whole rig moving or just the trailer?
