I installed the Dexter EZ Flex and it didn't help with the Chucking. The advantage is that you have heavier shackles, wet lube bolts and it helps the suspension of the trailer by providing extra cushion.

To answer an earlier post, the chucking isn't necessarily caused by the pin not seating tight in the hitch. When I had the Reese slider I had a lot of back and forth movement. I have a Curt non-slider hitch now, which is very tight around the pin. I towed two different fifth wheels with it. The first one didn't have any chucking. The second one, much heavier, does chuck when towing.

Just to be clear, you installed the Dexter EZ flex on which of your two 5th wheels, the heavier one? Which I presume is the 2007 Cardinal.

Last weekend I went to my storage facility to do some minor work on my 5'er and there was a guy nearby working on his and I could see he had his 5th wheel toy hauler up on jacks. Naturally, I wondered over to offer assistance (read - naturally I was curious what he was doing). He was putting on new Dexter equalizers with the wet bolts. His original hardware was shot! One of the linkage pieces had snapped and every hole was egg-shaped. His unit is 5 years old and he does a lot of off-road towing.

I'm disappointed that the Dexter EZ Flex did not reduce your chucking. I suppose it might help on certain rigs and not on others.
