I have also towed a TT (5000lbs) in the mountains with a Equalizer WDG for many years with no problems or issues at all and NO chains to deal with. Easy to setup and use in a jiffy and not very expensive.

I of course use safety chains from the trailer tongue to the truck hitch.

Take a look at the Blue Ox Sway Pro, no noise, and you can backup with it. I've had one for 6 years, and would buy it again.


Agreed. I changed over to Blue Ox 3 years ago when I got my current trailer and will stick with it. Super easy to use and no removal for reverse, and it works well

Snip... I back up with my Anderson all the time. just loosen the sway bar and don't jackknife.

The Andersen hitch does not have a "sway bar" to loosen. The sway control comes from the material that the ball cone sits in on the hitch head.
If you DO have an Andersen then your statement makes no sense at all to me.
