These links are very helpful for the dual cam. It us very hard to get adjusted properly. Ask me how I know.
Travel trailer hitch setup procedure
wdh, how it works.
Next, are you within your payload and tow capacity? Is your tongue weight under or over your hitch receiver ratings? What size bars are you running on your wdh? What is your tongue weight?
This has been the first problem I found. The weight questions, yes I am well within my tow capacity. Tongue weight was close to 1100 with the trailer weighing at 10k fully loaded. I checked the bars for both cams locking where they should be during straight line driving and sure enough the passenger side was not correct and was sitting like I was making a left hand turn. This doesn't make sense to me since both mounts on the trailer a frame are in the same exact position. I have since moved the culprit mount on the a frame 1" forward to allow the cam on the bar to sit where it should on the saddle mounted to the a frame. No test rides yet thou. I'm lucky to get the thing out once a month so I'm hoping real soon to pull it again.
I really really appreciate everybodys suggestions and my apologies for not responding to every post. I will try my best here to sum up most of the great questions asked......
Yes I said I "built the truck" it has stock sized, E range tires and is NOT lifted. I'm running an aftermarket steering box and aftermarket track bar. The truck is not the issue! I built this truck for big HP and TQ numbers and oversized tires do nothing but make my numbers lower. This was a frame off build with a very clean rust/rot free truck from north carolina to start with. While most of the bushings in the suspension have been replaced it may not be as good as a rig built in 2017, bit its dam near perfect for a truck of its age. This TV doesn't not have anti sway because it was built in 1998 and well, anti sway control was far off the list of options,
