With the air autoride, how can you tell when you have enough tension on the spring bars of the hitch?

Hi Dave
No sway. Had a few instances where I did have some swaying and just tightened 1 more link. Worked fine.
Bet you can't wait for the new 5'r

To echo what others have said. On that length RV you need a hitch with built-in sway control. Either the Equal-i-zer or Reese Straight-line (dual cam) will do nicely.

As for the air level on your Yukon you have to turn it off when setting up the hitch but once it's set up you leave it on for towing.

If you got that hitch from a dealer, see if you can take it back and trade for the proper one. Once you've got a proper hitch come back and we'll help you with checking the setup. Level to slightly nose down is the proper attitude when towing.

An added note: Be careful adding casters to the frame at the rear. Frame manufacturers don't recommend it because it stresses the frame and can warp or even crease it. They put those wimpy triangles on the rear mostly as noise makers. When you scrape those they make a lot of noise and bend easily but they don't tweek the frame.
