Steering Problems

Anyone have an issue when putting a load on your vehicle (2012 Nissan Titan 5.6L) & pulling a 2012 Flagstaff V-Lite 34.5 ft TT that the steering wheel pulls to the left.

What are you using for a wdh and sway control? Sounds like maybe it's not set up properly?

Check the hitch manufacturer's instructions on line for set-up. It doesn't sound like your hitch is set-up properly...probably need more weight distributed off the rear axle.

Are both bars the same wt, are they hooked with chains and if so, are you hooking them in the same link? If it doesn't pull when not towing you definitely have something out of kilter on the hitch.

I'm on a mobile app, so I can't see if you have anything in your signature.

I have a 2008 Titan. I had a similar issue. I run an Equalizer brand WD hitch. I had too much weight distributed which also created too much friction in the antisway action. If I made a sharp left turn to get on the highway, I had to keep the steering wheel turned a little to the right as I drove down the highway. If I made a sharp right turn to get on the highway, I had to keep the steering wheel turned to the left as I was driving down the highway.

Basically, I had so much friction in the anti-sway that the truck and trailer could never straighten out. Once I corrected that issue, everything was fine. I just had to follow the directions in the manual.
