That trailer has a fairly heavy unloaded tongue weight right at 15% (815 lbs). Do you know what your loaded tongue weight is?

I've never actually hooked it up without the w/d hitch. Should help show me how much help I am getting from the w/d hitch- As long as my truck doesn't flip backwards.

I do not know the actual tongue weight- I was estimating about what you have (815) based on all the weight calculations- and the bars are rated for 1000#

815 is the unloaded weight according to the site I looked at. This would not include Full propane tanks, battery and any thing you have stored in the front of the trailer. Looks like the pass thru storage and under bed storage could add to your tongue weight.

I think the payload with the leveling system was rated at 1900 lbs. I could be wrong (as I am most of the time) but that is what I think I saw on a spec sheet.

I might have been looking at the XL then. Depending on cargo of the TT and TV the OP may be close or over on weight, this coupled with the removal of factory equipment and addition of shocks could lead to the problems that were posted.

So let's add 500# to the tongue weight of 815 for propane, battery and user added items and we are at 1315#
I think we've found the problem!
And I think my 500# number is low.
We've not added passengers or gear in the denali yet.
