I agree with the others......make sure the Equal-i-zer is setup properly. Even though I thought my Reese handled great coming back from the dealer, they had it setup so only 60 lbs. of the lost 300 lbs. on my front axle had been replaced. Tweaking the WDH myself has made a big difference, and now it tows sweet.
To follow up what youroo posted, you should have a minimum of 10% of the total trailer weight on the tongue.......and 12 to 15% would be even better.
You can weigh the tongue via this method without having to buy anything special. Hitching Up - Trailer - Tongue Weight
But you would still need to know the actual weight of the trailer to get the proper percentage. A trip to the scales might be in order, if you think you can do that safely. You can also figure out the tongue weight with a trip to the scales.
And if you do decide on the Hensley or ProPpride, careful setup with that will also be necessary as youroo indicated.
