Okay. I'll have to keep that in mind. I just checked and we have a couple of dealers here in town. Thanks

I love my BlueOx SwayPro. No noise, no sway, no greasy bars.

Friction Sway Control

I have 2 that I am going to install before the first trip of the year. I was looking for experienced opinions of driving in poor weather, rain , snow etc. Do you remove them, back them off, or just keep on trucking?
I read through the debate on backing up but nothing on slippery conditions? I beleive the manual says " the unit should be turned off when driving in slick conditions".
And how slick is a "slick condition"? Rain gravel or snow?
Any "real world" opinions?

Thanks

Ian

Mixed emotions on using them on slick roads. You want the sway control, but don't want the sway control to adversely effect the tow vehicle. Damned if you do and damned if you don't use them. IMO, it is best to use them and slow down quite a bit until you hit dry pavement. 5er's are a whole different story. Towed tongue trailers off and on for 50 yrs with dual sway controls and the 2 yrs I've towed the 5er has been a much nicer experience. Never had any bad experiences with the tt's, I just like towing the 5er better.

My instructions stated not to be used on snow covered roads.
