People look at me when I stand up; I grunt, groan, legs and feet pop but after I get going, things seem to be okay. Is it in awe, envey, or are they looking for the cause of the noises? Oh well, I have a brand new 2012 V Lite. I can understand, they're enjoying the view!

Timex, you confused the issue when you stated that you had a "Equalizer brand friction sway control".

Equalizer is a brand of WDH that has no friction anti-sway bar. nor, do they sell such a thing, as far as i know.
it has 4-point sway control, incorporated in the hitch head and the weight bars.

saying yours is an Equalizer brand, is confusing.

Sorry for your confusion. I bought this item 12 years ago and guess I'm the one that is confused! I just eye-balled it and it is an EAZ-LIFT brand sway control. Sorry for Equalizer/Reese runaround.

I've got the exact same groaning screeching thing goin on with mine only I have to have two sway controls to keep the sway down, one on each side! Twice the noise. I've just learned to turn up the radio & drive on. But I definately know how annoying it is.

When my sway control is too snug the squeeking will increase. When it does get loud I will slightly loosen it a little bit. When ever I swing by the service department they will check it out and let me know if I have it set right so now I have a good idea of the correct setting. The more I tow the more I know what are normal noises and what are not.

Great choice for "Living within my means" and camping for one...
