    Question! Why and how do we determine how much of an angle to put the ball on? I understand the rest of the WDH,since I have the exact same WDH.

    I watched this video the first time right after you made it and it made a huge difference in my towing the travel trailer behind my 2007 Ford F-250 2wd Diesel. We've upgraded to a 2019 Ford F-250 4wd gasser with a 6 in lift so I wanted to see what I may have forgotten since setting and forgetting the last truck. Thank you very much for your details, your reasons behind the why of it all and your sense of humor!

    I'm a mom who's entertaining the idea of buying a small RV and truck and forcing my 3 kids to spend lots of quality time in small quarters 🙂 sway looks terrifying so I've watched so many videos on RV safety. This one is the best!! TY for such easy and clear explanations and actually showing every part of hookup!!

    JR – These videos are great! I have a hitch question. I have a Keystone Hideout 31FBDS with a 900 pound hitch weight. I pull it with a F150 eco boost and fastway e2 hitch rated for 10,000 pounds. I get a lot of sway. I am guessing I am over my tongue weight for the hitch? Should I move to an E4 at a higher weight? Any advice is appreciated.

    going to be upgrading to the E4 hitch ,do i need to load out my tow vehicle before installing the hitch or can i install as is. Some have suggested to load out the tow vehicle, but my issue is that we never take the same amount of gear with us. It all depends on where and for how long we are going for .Is there maybe a certain amount of weight we could load in the truck if that is the thing to do that would be sufficient for the installation.

    very small item; you mentioned to not leave the emergency brake pin out but not why; I believe the reason is because when it is out it is sending power to the trailer brakes and engaging the brakes will use energy, either battery or other. Once settled in to a campground and heard the inverter working and didn't know why. Checked everything and found out the emergency cable had gotten stuck on something and pulled out so it was "working" i.e., engaging the brake. Is that explanation correct? And what would have happened? Brakes continue to heat up or the wires overheat eventually? Thanks !!

    Great video, lots of good information. What about equalizer’s instructions to measure the front axle height to make sure weight is properly distributed?

    I dont even have a travel trailer currently and I'm still watching these videos because they are hilarious and informative. Good job guys, If I wasn't 5k miles from you I would definitely buy a trailer from your company.
