Equalizer setup question
Tow vehicle- 99 chevy k2500 crew cab
Trailer- '10 cherokee 28BH
I had the dealer setup my equalizer when I bought the trailer. The only driving I have done so far is bringing it home (about 90 miles).
It felt as though it did not have enough tongue weight to me but still pulled decent.
I am not used to weight distributing hitches- it has been many years ago that I used them at all and they were the old style, though I tow many different sizes of trailers regularly many weighing much more than the TT.
While hitched up, the trailer was setting down in the rear and the hitch was on its highest setting. I dropped it down 1 hole (it might need to go another 1). My weight bars were angled up toward the rear, the bars are not parallel to the trailer frame before dropping the hitch 1 hole and of course are now even worse.
My real question is should the weight bars be parallel to the ground/ trailer frame ( or at least close to it)? I think yes, but not positive.
As for making my truck squat, it seems to be the same no matter what. Keep in mind this is a very stiff suspension and it takes alot to move it at all.
We are taking it out this weekend and would like the trip to go smoothly and not have to stop a dozen times to make adjustments on the way.
