You guys crack me up! I really do appreciate all of the help. I have reviewed the instructions from Reese and the videos and I think I can get this straightened out.

On the plus side, it gives me an excuse to get some nice tools (big wrenches)....maybe even a nice torque wrench...."Sorry dear, the guys on the forum said I have to use a torque wrench to do it right."

Have a great day everyone.

Depending on the draw bar and which hole needs to be used it could be a toss up between slightly nose high or nose low. Sometime the available holes don't allow the nose to be perfectly level.

Down a little is a scoch more than a nats *****.

That's where tilting the head comes in. It can be adjusted in minute amounts with a little patience.

The Reese DC WDH works really well when it's set up properly. If you have the trunnion bars, you'll find that they'll be pointed downward (relative to the TT frame) when set up. The round bar setup will typically result in the bars being close to parallel to the TT frame. Either way it's imperative that your TV settles equally at the front and rear fender and that the TT is level. The nose down thing is totally nose down. Unless... the adjustment in your ball mount will not get the TT perfectly level. Then, the nose down option is preferred. You can do this. And best of all, you get more toys (tools).

V-Nose Reese Straight Line/Dual Cam

Referring to Dual Cam, is this also called the "straight line" version?

I agree that the hitch works well when set up. My last dealer did not do well in that dept. and I've been changing mine for 3 years trying to keep from bending chain hangers. Adjustment of the hitch so the bars sit in the chain hanger is the key.

The head is very adjustable for leveling the trailer and angle of the bars. Lots of work though.

Reese Strait-Line/Dual Cam - one and the same.

You shouldn't need to constantly adjust it once it's set up unless the TT load is drastically changing. It's critical that the cam arm be adjusted such that when the snap-up bracket is closed, the chain is vertical when the cam is nested in the spring bar detent. We've put over 15K miles on ours and it has not required any adjustment.
