RE: Truck weight check

I use it because I have it and the blue ox has sway control built in

RE: Truck weight check

When using a weight-distributing hitch, measure distance (1) before coupling the trailer to the hitch ball. Measure the height again after the trailer is coupled and adjust the spring bars so the distance (1) is as close as possible to halfway between the two measurements That's from the owners manual

RE: Truck weight check

Ahhhh....i was going rear drive no wdh minus rear drive no trailer 4680 -3300 = 1380....makes sense The sway pro doesn't allow for head tilt anymore Thx

Truck weight check

I have a 2015 silveRado 2500hd with a 2015 kz spree connect 322bhs Cat scale weights Truck only steer 4040 Drive 3300 gross 7340 Trailer with without wdh steer 3640 Drive 4680 Trailer 6920 grass 15240 Trailer with blue ox wdh at 10 links steer 4000 drive 4180 trailer 7080 gross 15260 Trailer with blue ox wdh at 9 links Steer 3880 drive 4320 trailer 7040 gross 15240 Gm says to return steer axle to 50% of empty weight. With 10 links I almost restored 100%. At 9 links I was just under 50% I prefer the 10 link set up because the bars have more bend and it helps with sway control a bit more. Is it ok that I returned the steer axle to within 40 lbs of my truck steer axle with no trailer weight? And did I calculate my tongue weight at 1380lbs and the trailer total weight at 8300 lbs? Therefore my hitch weight is 16%????? Can't be Thanks in advance

Blue ox sway pro help

2015 silverado 2500hd and a kz spree 322bhs with a blue ox sway pro wdh With my last truck (1500) I followed the blue ox instructions for the install. With the trailer level, the ball needs to be 1-2 inches higher than the coupler proir to attaching to the trailer. Now with the 2500hd, if the ball height is set up as blue ox suggests, then the truck doesn't squat enough and the trailer nose is too high. If I level the trailer and have the ball an inch lower than the coupler (prior to hook up),  when the trailer is hooked up to the 2500 truck with the wdh installed, the trailer sits where I need it to be. When I called blue ox and explained my situation all they told me was to follow the instructions. I even explained that I am nose high when i follow the instructions and they did not have an answer for me. Has anyone else had this issue and if not, should I keep my set up the way I have it or listen to blue ox and be nose high and risksway ?  Thx

new 2500hd

In the fall we purchased a 15 kz spree connect 322bhs and I was hoping I would be able to tow with my 1500. The wet weight of the trailer is 8100lbs with approx 1000lbs hitch weight. After taking my truck to the scale with full gas and passengers, my 1670lbs of payload had 900 left for the tongue weight and bed gear. So we purchased a 15 silverado 2500hd 6.0. Can't wait to pick her up http://www.gm-trucks.com/forums/uploads/gallery/album_3289/gallery_13567_3289_1468830.jpg http://www.gm-trucks.com/forums/uploads/gallery/album_3289/med_gallery_13567_3289_2034680.jpg http://www.gm-trucks.com/forums/uploads/gallery/album_3289/med_gallery_13567_3289_470670.jpg http://www.gm-trucks.com/forums/uploads/gallery/album_3289/med_gallery_13567_3289_1429712.jpg
