Picked up new trailer Wed. and during walkthrough, almost missed hitch set up. They did get Blue Ox I ordered, but, they used 1000 bars. Their setup actually raised my front end even after I suggested more bar tension after the installer left.
Ride home went by Flying J for lunch and scales where I confirmed hitch setup was wrong but at least got ball park weights. TW seems to be at least 1000 (must remove approx. 240 pounds of water from fresh tank I did not know was there). That exceeds the bars right there, so, collecting information to take back to dealer from y'all and my scales receipt. 1500 spring bars will be coming one way or the other.
The tail did wag the dog in traffic due to the above. Absolutely love the lack of pop and crack being GONE! I could feel set up was bad before the scales and my TV weight on the front was actually 60 pounds lighter than empty as my tape measure told me it would be. I'm just the buyer, I don't know what I'm talking about / right?
All will be well when new bars installed and proper weights applied.
Thanks to all for information and assistance. OH! Came with D range L speed rate china bombs which will go soon as I get bills paid from trip to welcome new grandbaby into Texas. Old trailer kept us dry in College Station, Texas for almost three weeks and Timber Ridge RV in Bryan.
Once again, THANKS to all and FILM at 11.
