bounce

The first time I used it I got a tremendous amount of Bounce on a particular stretch of freeway, was it the road or the hitch?
thanks
Bill

I have this hitch and the results are still out for me . the installation process was not quite as easy as they say the chain brackets have four set screws in them and they suggest you drill four holes for the set screws of have the brackets tack welded. To adjust the chain you do it just as you do a regular WD hitch , you crank up the jack and take the pressure of the springs than you can loosen or tighten them. I set my to seven threads showing . only have taken it out once and got a lot of bounce on a piece of expressway but maybe that was just the road . They give you a socket to adjust the chains with but you need a 1/2 inch driver to use it. I happen to have a shorty driver so that worked for me

I am getting ready to buy my second Andersen TT hitch. I like the concept. I am 66 years old and racheting is a lot better than me lifting heavy spring bars. Hitch works well and racheting chains pulls triangular plate and distributes weight forward. I pull a 28 foot airstream and hitch works great. Cost 1/2 of reese WD dual cam hitch. No noise and do not have to remove to reverse.

WOW this thread has really shown me who I don't want to buy from, the guy who clams to have 15 years of knowledge can't understand a simple push/pull theory.

I like the new hitch design but I would like to see it with a positive detent instead of just a friction pad. I'm ready to pull the trigger on somthing soon,just hard to justify more than a weeks pay on a new hitch, much less a months pay on some oversized chain-links. Looks like anderson might have hit a homerun.

Bingo...! The chains are drawing the ball rearward and the trailer forward. This in turn forces the ball into the latch mechanism on most couplers instead of the ball being seated in the formed socket of the coupler which is why you could not unlatch with chains tight. This system looks like a great sway control and testimony from users seem to substantiate it.

Thank you! That guy doesn't know a damn thing about towing or hitches. Probably doesn't even have an engineering degree. Push/pull theory? That's all about immigration, isn't it?

nope Sean, I've seen you on alot of forums and you have always proven yourself to be a salesman and nothing more. Over and over you shout down new ideas instead of encouraging competition. It is very apparent that you had nothing to do with the converging links design,just happened to be in the right place when the patent ran out.
No I do not have a engineering degree, and I shouldn't need one to know that if I push on one side of a lever the other side will move in a predictable way, a class I guess you missed back in second grade.

and just to be clear encouraging someone to pull a 32' tt with a jeep just because it has a v8, to make a sale, is dangerous and you open yourself up to be liable when someone gets hurt.

Over and over? Really? Prone to much exaggeration?

Can you point out all these posts to back up your talk?

You won't. Not due to your obvious lack of intelligence but because there aren't any.

How about posting your REAL name rather than hiding behind a username? See mine?

Did the patent run out? Once again, you don't quite research any facts, do you? You might want to attempt to do that before you post anything. Your credibility in ALL your posts (3 of them?) really takes a hit when you post information that is easy to prove false.

Just to be clear with you, whomever you are, you don't have a clue. I've been doing this every day of my life for over 15 years, THOUSANDS of happy customers, and have NOT ONE that has ever been hurt. What are you implying? Once again, your KEYBOARD COURAGE doesn't impress me. Please let me know your REAL name.

If you'd like to back up your assertions, let's get on a test track.

Here's my open challenge to you... I'll meet you at any test track with a jeep and a 32' trailer. You can bring your combination.

We'll each pay half the bill to get the testing done by test engineers. All of it will be documented so we can post it here.

That should tell us if you really have a valid point.

What do you say?
