Though we pull a 5th wheel now, I would NEVER pull a TT without all of the safety features. It's just not worth it.

Always do the wd bars. Only use the sway bar if windy, or going over 40mph/highway.

I don't know how short his trip was today, but the snow is already 10" deep here in northern Illinois!!!

Last thing I'd want to be doing here today is towing a trailer, with or without a wdh.

I agree with Old Coot. If you tow, use everything you've got to make sure it's a safe trip.

In that type of weather condition it is a must. Only time I do not use is my 5 miles to the camp ground and never get above 35mph. I also use a different ball mount. Later RJD

YES, the only thing holding you hitch ball at the correct angle is a small adjustment bolt under the hitch. A weight distribution hitch is not designed to be used without being fully connected. If you do not want to use bars get a ball hitch only with the correct weight rating.

Plato, wasn't bad in the snow. Was a total pain to back the rig into the spot at the storage place when you can't see the lines.
