2017 26DBH. 500$ hitch with sway bars. Neither of us know the brand . Yes, it's when we are going slow and turning.

Thanks for the tip about greasing!

Pictures say a thousand words. Include one and someone will be able to identify....maybe.

Axle grease on the ball and also the pivot points on your weight distribution bars. This is where I found most of my noise coming from. I have a Reese straight line hitch. Now the only noise I get is a pop sometimes when the trunnion bars return to the cam saddles.

We have been using white grease, rather than the dark color. Much easier to clean up and works good for us.

popping noise.

Do you have a friction type sway control? If yes, it is normal.

We carry a grease gun. The weight distribution hitch requires it often. We had terrible sounds until we learned that.
