Looks like the weight is balanced really well looking at the numbers. Ya'll are making me want to hook up and head out!

They're making me want to quit being a tow-weeny and go fetch a mansion on wheels.

Down at Wind Creek casino at Atmore Al. for a few days. First time I’ve driven the TT with tune. ( almost 700 miles😂) finally got the fault problem solved I think (changed to SCT Livewire TS) Running 91 per/tow V2 on 93 gas. What a difference !!!!!!!!! Hills are of no concern, well at least these ant hills down here LOL. Finally got her leveled. 39 1/2 on front and back and within 3/4” from front and back on TT at 35 lbs in air bags. I also lowered one bolt on hitch. Water Temp never went above 220 and xmsn 203, CAC 5-10 above air temp on highway. Also dropped by CAT scales 15780 total with 7780 on TT axles 🤦‍♂️
Good to hear you got it leveled! I need to find some level ground this year to see exactly where I'm sitting.

I picked up a 1 1/4 in ratcheting wrench last fall. Way better for tightening the chains on the Andersen that using a ratchet or breaker bar and socket.

Thanks everyone for the comments! I’m still not out of the woods :( I still have to balance out the sway and bounce on bumps. I can get one acceptable but not both at same time. 9100 on TT and 1320 on hitch puts it at around 15% @Kinguni i use a ratchet torque wrench to tighten or loosen the Anderson adjustment nut, just put it to max. Now it’s Time to loose my money to the one arm bandits 🤬 LOL

That's what I used to do. Ratcheting wrench is much better. Good luck!

may I ask how much does your red bushing bulge if any? And does your truck bounce (buck) more if you over tighten or less?

You know, I haven't really paid attention to how much it bulges. Camping season is still over 3 months away here so I can tell you then lol! As for the bucking, I haven't really noticed it changing with tightening, and it's much less that with other weight distribution hitches I've used. I think the Timbrens really help in that regard too. Still, I will go out of my way to avoid a couple of highways around here.

My brother popped his 3.5 - towing it back to his place nearly 3 hours away so he can clean it out before the repo man shows up.

Just hauling a small washer to storage until I get a chance to rebuild it to sell! Weight is only around 900lbs I’d say.
