I purchased the Husky Centreline WDH with our new Cherokee 30U+. I have limited experience with this hitch. 3 trips so far. I am very impressed with the Centreline so far. There is now sway at highway speeds 60 - 65 mph and don't notice any sway when meeting/following a tracter trailer on the highway. Really happy with my decision to give the Centreline a try.

I ordered the EQ yesterday from RVW and it should be in withing a few days. Thanks to all for the info. I did note in my research that the brackets should be set at 32 inches from the center of the tongue ball and took a tape measure out this morning (probably should have done that earlier). It may prove to be an interesting install as 32 inches puts those brackets in line with the LP tanks. I'm figuring there is some minimum/maximum variances in the instructions that may mitigate that potential issue. Again, thanks all and I'll follow-up in a few weeks after I get a few miles on.

32" is what Progress wants to see but you can move as close as 27" if needed. You might call the guys at Progress to discuss this with them. I found their engineers to be exceptionally helpful. They might even have experience with setting it up on your brand of trailer.

Here are the install manuals. If the plastic anti "grind" brackets are not included with the new hitches, I would buy them.

Thanks Scott and Lou. Do the "anti grind" brackets diminish any of the sway control aspects of the hitch?

I purchased the EQ as well and have bought the anti grind brackets as well. Have not used it yet, I pick up TT in two weeks, but what I have read and what those that use the brackets have said is, "no change was really noticed other than the sound of grinding. A possible slight loss of the sway feature but not enough to really tell a difference."

So that is what I have heard. Any other thoughts out there on the brackets???

If I was still towing the TT, I would be wearing a pair of those sporty jackets on my brackets!

I bought the jackets over the winter and plan to install them this week so no experience. I had spoke with a guy at Progress last year and he confirmed there is a slight loss in sway control and the reduced control is somewhat dependent on your setup. He didn't think I would notice much, if anything, when we discussed my numbers.

The funny thing is the noise doesn't even really bother me that much (its just telling me its working), but I want to try them out anyway. I'm a gadget geek .

Noisy can sometimes be an understatement Other campers understand but parking lots and gas stations are interesting. I've learned to ignore the stares.

Its taken care of with the Sway Bracket Jacket

These fit on the L-brackets and were designed by Progress to quiet the ride.
