Driving I69 out of Port Huron we had the worst chucking ever. Smoothed out after we were on newer concrete. Before this very rare did u have any problems. Depends on the road and speed from my experience.

I have the same issue with mine. We have the 8286 with the revolution pin box and I'm using the b&w companion hitch. I've towed with 2 other trucks with a reese 15k and curt 16k hitch. I had no chucking with either one. Hitch and camper heights were all really close or identical. Is it possible I have a hitch/pin box combination that doesn't work together?

When referring to chucking, is that the 5th wheel pushing the truck back and forth on roads or the bounce? I'm a real noob, only 2 trips in the 5ver and I also have the 150 ecoboost. DW and me travel extremely light.

Yes back and forth. I'm pretty sure that it in my truck. Just not sure what is wrong. Looking at a newer truck in the sping.

Chucking with my Rockwood 8289

Could be TV or TT shocks. Some have has great success in eliminating chucking by adding airbags to TV

I only have chucking on cement roads and most severe in Michigan. I ready think its a oscillation setup between the trailer wheels/hitch /TV wheels. Braking slightly breaks the loop.

I did put new shocks on the rear but didn't help. It does it on all roads. Thanks on the tips.

Mine happens mostly on cement especially bridges. I am getting some air bags installed on the bed this winter.

I had chucking also with new shocks all around on my truck, by designing and installing shocks on the 5er, I got rid of it. I also had air bags, but the trailer shocks is what eliminates the chucking.

It could be anything from the hitch to pin weight,shocks and the roads. I only get it if a hit the breaks hard or start to fast. Nothing going down the highway, no special shocks or air bags. Could also be how level your unit is. I did put the best Monroe's made on my TV. They took a lot of bounce out of the truck made my wife a lot happier. I know my unit not bouncing being I leave a coffee pot on the counter and it doesn't move and also nothing shifts in my cabinets or refer. My pin weight if I remember right is over 1700 lbs. I don't know if you can really get rid of it without going with the shock type hitch and pin box. But for sure I'm no expert on it, but it's a common complaint by most members. And you can't use the air ride box because the revolution is only boxed in with 10" inches between the frame. I asked limpert (spelled Correctly) when they installed my level up system and said shocks would not help on my trailer but who knows some people swear by them. I just live with it, it's not that bad on mine like I said. There suppose to be the experts not me.
