I too have the DC but have to use a 3 pound sledge hammer to get the bars off the cams. I think the cams are adjusted too tight and are binding on the 'u' at the end of the trunion. Does anyone else have this problem? The TT tows like a dream, tracks straight as an arrow on the highway and in winds, and yes makes pop noises while turning.

You probably have 1200 lb bars. The issue with some of them is the crook is pinched slightly wider than the cams. Simply take a grinder and touch up the sides of the crooks, little spray paint and your issue goes away.

Thanks!

You're right, it's the 1200 bars...I'll look at the edges to see if that's it next time I'm out. Thanks for the note!

Well, I ordered a DC.. I figure worse case scenario, I don't like it, and buy a Hensley, but from reading here, I don't think that will be the case.

Thanks everyone!
