Reese dual cam, what do I need to know?

Just yesterday we traded our 2012 Grey Wolf 26BH with Andersen WD hitch in on a 2013 Passport 3220BH that comes with the Reese dual cam hitch. We don't take delivery of the Passport until Wednesday afternoom, and Thursday afternoon we are leaving for a 4 day weekend.

I know that the Reese dual cam is a completely different animal than the Andersen WD hitch, so what do I need to know about the Reese?

I am hoping that the dealer will be able to get the setup of the hitch close for me, but I am not holding my breath...

We used the reese dual cam on our old TT. It is Avery good hitch but a bear to get set up and dialed in correctly. The v in your bars should sit directly on the cam when straight, it will lift when turning. It will creek, bang, and pop a lot, this is normal. Be aware, my old dealership set my reese dc up completely wrong. They spaced it incorrectly, dialed it in wrong and set the cams on backwards. Here are some links with good info on these hitches.
