My Tv is a Chevy 1500. The trailer us maybe 5000 loaded. We are in Indiana so most towing around here is to OH and MI. It is overall pretty flat trips of average 4 hours. We do not plan any mountains yet and are not planning any cold weather camping. I think this is why I have not met any problems, though I certainly see the benefits of a weight distribution system!

We wound up Re-installing it ourselves.
