Get that hitch adjusted but make sure the rear tires are 80 psi cold on those 18s. You should have the Michelins which are the same I had and for towing you want to have the pressures correct. They can come from the dealer at 65-70....

Get a TST 507 system.

And the OP needs to adjust his hitch set up.
That is why I replace all my china bombs with high quality commercial LT tires. Never had a blow out with them. Now my buddy with his ST garbage, yes..... But, we don't lose a lot of time as we can have a trailer tire changed in less then 10 min start to finish. Trailer Aid and cordless impact gun. Boom, done.

Must be fun watching the gas gauge drop as you drive
Bingo! I could not have said that better myself!
My 2012 Toyota Tacoma pulls my 25' TT Beautifully at 60 MPH

Free speech and I'm entitled to my opinion also lets keep politics out of this ( although what you say is true )
We all know if Boosted 1200 slowed down the yawing would be less, I think his question was answered, after about a thousand miles or so the tires will be scuffed in and the yawing will diminish.

I've got more truck than most of you but started towing a TT with a Dodge Caravan. Dance with the one that brung ya. However, if you're having problems towing, braking or with your China bombs because you're going too fast or don't have enough truck, please go off the mountain yourself and don't take me or anyone else with you.

If you don't drive like a Nit Wit, keep your Speed Down with lots of Spacing.
These New WDH's do an amazing job of keeping you Inline no matter Where you are...Not to mention today's new Brake Controllers...
Main rule of thumb I say... COMMON SENSE Decisions!
It's Not Rocket Science!
