Nailed it! I'm a project manager currently supervising construction of a new rest area off the highway. And while I appreciate everybody's input there are many questions I need to respond to that yall have asked. It's to hard for me to do from the phone so I've been waiting until the weekend to sit down in front of the computer so I can view the whole post.

If you have Anti Sway on your TV turn it off. These do not work well with WD/ Anti Sway Hitches. If both are left on they work against each other and will scuff the edges of your tires and your sway and Anti Sway will be exagerated.

Interesting. I've never had any issues with my Silverado. Actually, never even thought to turn it off. Is that problem brand specific?

Not really but if you are having problems with sway and have a WD/Sway hitch and anti sway on in your truck try turning the anti sway feature off. Sway will be exagerated in a strong crosswind with both on. They work against each other and you will notice scuffing on the outside edges of your tires where sidewall and tread meet. I have had this problem with Chevy and Ford Anti Sway with two different trailers.

Lighter and shorter trailers will not need the WD/Sway hitch and the anti sway feature works great. Longer and heavier trailers that require a WD/Sway hitch are not very compatible with the anti sway feature that is built in to your TV. This is more prevalent with strong crosswinds.

I am wondering

if your build on your TV included all new suspension components. There are so many bushings, spacers, etc. that could affect sway. Things get pretty worn out after almost 20 year and might not show up as an issue until under the added stress of towing.

Just thinking out loud a bit here. Hope you get it figured out.

Happy Camping
