2011 Chevy Silverado 1500 towing question

When we towed our pop-up set the gain at 2.5 any advice for our gain setting when we pick up our mini-lite 2503S. We do have an anti-sway and a weight distribution hitch.

That would be a guess set the gain before you leave the lot just like you did with the pop up

gain is different from trailer to trailer...

while in the parking lot, set the gain up 1 point at a time until you can feel the trailer stop the truck... then maybe back off one point... or keep it there... you have to adjust to your situation
