29HFS squeaking

Once I connect the weight distribution hitch and sway control, it squeaks horrible.. Anyone else have this issue. I lubed everything and still does not work.

Which WDH are you using? I know my 4-pt Equalizer on my old TT squeaked like crazy, I think it's just part of the collective experience...

The noise is coming from your Sway control. And NEVER lube it if you want it work. It's a friction based system so lube defeats the purpose.

Mine squeals bad when turning but it works.

I have an Equalizer hitch also.
1000/10000 for the 27HFS. Equalizer sells a polyurethane plate that fits over the "L" brackets that bolt to the front part of the A frame of the trailer. It helps reduce noise from the bars. You'll still get some squeaks from the sway control, but it is much better
