Honestly, I think your write up should be a "sticky" topic. It is too important to get wrong, and it seems many dealers do just that.

I am going to "stick" this tread, but not in the hybrid forum. Weight distributing applies to all bumper pull trailers, so I will move the thread to the towing forum. IMHO, there should be a WDH sticky thread there. Without digging through the archives, this thread seems to fit the bill for the time being.

I might change the title a bit, to better reflect the subject of the thread. Ah, the powers of a moderator !!

I will agree that dealers don`t set your WDH up right. They slap the hitch together fast and send you off quickly after they get your money. My Equalizer was slapped together fast. Trailer was 6 inches low in the front. Set screw wasn`t even tight. L brackets set @ 29 inches with no problems to set @ recommended 32 inches. I took the hitch all apart and started over. What a difference that made.

I suppose I can get in on this. I just posted another thread, but may be worth it to post here as well.

We recently bought a 2306 and we're going to pick it up on Monday. It comes with a 1000/10000 equalizer. Do I need to sell that and get a 600/6000 equalizer? He currently tows it with a similar truck w/the 1000/10000 and says it does fine, but I want to be sure I'm setup properly.

Truck pulled good. Don't think I have any concerns with it at this point. Maybe a trans temp gauge would be nice. Otherwise, WDH transfer from his Tacoma to the Frontier was almost identical.
