With a 1 T dually why would he need a WDH? Just reload the camper and put weight on the tongue. Might help with dual friction sway bars.

Our truck isn't a dully, maybe if it was we wouldn't have this problem.

Shouldn't make any difference, with a 1 T truck I doubt very much if you are anyways close to over loading it without a wdh.

Swaying

I'm not real familiar with the F350 but my F150 has electronic sway control and if I forget to turn it off I will get some sway because my Blue Ox Sway Pro has sway control also. When both the truck and the Sway Pro are trying to control the sway they just make it worse.

My wife also reminded me that we almost jackknifed bringing the trailer home unloaded from the dealership, with our WDH attached. I'm going to call forest river tomorrow and see if we can get a schematic for our unit. We have to get this resolved or I will be camping alone! My wife loves camping and she doesn't want to be afraid.

You can always add fresh water to increase tongue weight. You should be using a WDH with sway control with tongue weights over 500 lbs and trailer weights over 5000 lbs. even with F350.

Dual sway controls but why the wdh? To what benefit? If his hitch has the capacity, he sure isn't in need of transferring weight to the front of the truck or off the rear or even back to the trailer.

No one has asked yet, but is the trailer level or pointing nose up slightly?
