Re: First Tow with Diesel
If you properly set up your WD hitch in the first place,you will not be over sprung as you claim my rig is!
Proper setup by adjusting the angle of the head of the WD is what puts whatever amount of spring help you need for the load to be carried NOT THE CAPACITY OF THE HITCH !!
The reese wd I have been using on numerous tow vehicles is actually RATED 1400lb tongue weight,14,400 capacity.
I purchased this hitch because of 10K capacity trailer, which would give me 25% safety margin. BIGGER IS BETTER!
1) Measuring simple wheel well heights front & rear with no trailer attached!
2) ATTACH trailer with out spring bars in place measure again front and rear.
3) Adjust WD head angle so when the spring bars are attached the TOW VEHICLE squats the same amount FRONT and REAR (PURPOSE OF WD)
This procedure is the best method for adjusting or installing WD.
4) confirm at scales.
Due to economic hard times the light at the end of the tunnel will be turned off until further notice!!!!!
