I think I have it

Thanks to everyone for their advice. If I left anyone hanging, I am sorry I have been very busy. After much messing around which the hitch was set up correctly it basically came down to my tires on the truck which I had thought that but had not done anything about it. I had purchased a set of wheels from my cousin and the wheels had 2 good tires on them so I bought more to match. They are awesome tires but do not work with pulling a camper such as mine. I took the tires off my winter rims(stock rims) and put them on my wheels and put the other tires on my winter rims and they has taken care of most of the problem. All tires I have are 10 ply but the tires that I did have on my wheels were a mud tire so everyother lug on the outside of the tire was shaved off(from the factory) and that meant I only had half of the tire I could have holding me straight. I am comfortable to pull that camper anwhere but have only pulled it about 15 miles since I have it the way I want it. We are going to try to get out this weekend for the first time. We are only going about 5 miles from home but it will be our test and tune to make sure everything is working and to get the camper stocked back up. Again thanks to all and happy camping.

I had a similar issue when I changed tow vehicles. I had to reset up the hitch but the biggest help was making sure you have the proper torque where the arms go into the hitch. Manual should say but I believe it is either 45# or 65#. It would be a good time to take all apart, clean and relube like manual says too.
