Adjustment is simple because of the easy-to-operate snap-up brackets that allow spring bar tension to be adjusted by changing links in the support chains. This lets you adjust for various trailer tongue weights within the spring bar weight range by applying tension on the spring bars until the car or tow vehicle is level. Rather than merely supporting the trailer tongue weight (TW), weight distributing hitches apply leverage between the towing vehicle and trailer causing the TW to be carried by all axles of the tow vehicle and trailer. When TW is distributed in this way, trailers with greater TWs can be towed, resulting in a more level ride which reduces stress on the rear of the tow vehicle and provides greater steering and brake control.
This must always be considered in trailer towing. Unwanted sway turns a pleasant towing situation sour. Many factors can contribute to trailer sway the design of the trailer, the suspension, tire inflation pressures, configuration of the tow vehicle, towing speeds and hitch weight.
The Friction Sway Control does exactly what its name implies,
it uses friction to resist pivotal movement and thereby works against the effects
of included sway. It operates on the principle of "stiffening" the coupling
between the tow vehicle and trailer. The degree of "stiffening" or friction
is adjusted to suit various trailer weights and towing conditions. Its operation
is simple and uncomplicated. It doesn't prevent the generation of sway; it simply
works to resist the forces once they have started.
Dual Cam Sway Control works to prevent sway before it starts
in addition to resisting sway once it's begun.
