Anderson hitch dialed in

After a few months of towing with the Anderson hitch, I'm finally confident that I have it dialed in. Haven't towed in but a few windy days which made my cheeks pucker that lead me to review my original install. First off, my brackets had shifted positions( which the manual had said they would) but one side moved forward an inch. Fixed that. Then changed my rear TV tire pressure to 65 (from 45) lbs and front to 52. That changed my wagging tail feeling in crosswinds.

Coming home this weekend had 30-35 mph cross winds. Even when the trailer moved, came right back in line. The true test turned out to be a dust devil coming across the freeway in medium level traffic. Although I was in the right lane I could only safely drop to about 50 without causing havoc behind me. Drove right thru it and felt the rear wiggle twice- and that was it! Was expecting much more of a fight.

I'm now feeling much more confident about the equipment and we are ready for our big pull to the sequioas.
