831BHSS Sway - Looking for advice

Ahhh yes the infamous - whale sounds - yes I get that and I do lube it. Drives my wife crazy and makes the kids laugh.

If I am not mistaken - there are 5 washers. My trailer ULVW is about 7900 and generally run about 8200-8400 - with everything else.

I will give it a shot in the spring. Thanks for the tips.

Any issues with sway, using the Equal-i-zer?

If you want to eliminate sway look into a Hensley Arrow antisway hitch. I towed a 33 ft V-lite with an 06 Expedition using a garden variety load leveling hitch and found the trailer was very hard to control. To make a long story short I am now using the Hensley Arrow and it does as advertised - It eliminates ALL sway. it is pricey but worth it. I would not tow another camper without it.
