Be sure to do a follow-up after you take it in for adjustment. I always like to know the outcome. I have been tweaking on mine..even added an extra friction sway bar. I have a Proseries with SC, big bars. I have begun to notice what trucks give me the big push and which ones don't.

So I am going to take the whole set up to a place that does hitches exclusively and pay WHATEVER they want to do WHATEVER they need, because if we don't get into an accident by the grace of God, I will surely have a heart attack. And yes I too felt like it was broken. This dealer has been super nice, but they have taught us several wrong things, just because they don't even know themselves!!
Don't fight to control sway, eliminate it completely by using a Hensley, look for a used one if you find it expensive, I've had mine for a long time and find it's the only way to go. I know others will argue but I don't need to control sway because I don't get any.

Def check the adjustment. I have the Reese dual cam setup with a lacrosse 318 which is about 35 feet. Took it to flordia right from the dealer( 1600 mile trip) and it was terrrible. When I got there I spent about 2 hours one day with the instructions, Reese website, and readjusted everything myself..

Was 200% better and has been great ever since.

I still have the cheap china tires that came with it, pull with a 1/2 ton truck. The only time I get any sway is if it is really really windy or I get caught between 2 tractor trailers, and even in those instances the sway might just be a a quick flutter and that's it..

Sounds like u just need to tune yours in that's all

Does anyone know where there is someone who not only sells but installs Hensleys in the Austin Tx area?

No, but get ready to drop around $3,000.00 for the hitch.

Well I have a 10 yr old in the truck, so honestly if we we can't get the WDH and sway control we have on adjusted I'll put it on the CC and pay as I go. His safety has NO price tag.

You should be able to get what you have to work just fine. Thousands, if not millions of others have made them work just fine. Don't get discouraged.

Thanks! Its hard not to be discouraged. My husband is not mechanical at all so he can't start adjusting this himself and when we spent $25000 on a new TT I had no idea this would be an issue until after the fact. And my son was in the truck the other day and I was scared out of my mind. It was no fun.

I have noticed that if you keep your tow vehicle tire pressure at the max pressure (that's listed on that tire) it helps with swaying. Also make sure your truck tires are rated for towing. Usually C,D,E ratings are best for pulling loads.
