How to reduce chucking?

What are the most common reasons for chucking? Is it inevitable no matter what truck/trailer you have? Is the only way to stop chucking having to purchase an expensive suspension hitch or pinbox? Or is there a specific method of hitch/truck angle, weight distribution, pin weight, etc. which could help reduce or stop chucking?

Take a look at Demco's cure for it. Might be what you are looking for.

I'm not an expert. I always thought that chucking meant more weight was needed on the hitch.

This is sometimes helpful, but not always the answer. On some road surfaces, anyone can experience the effect.

You will get a lot of answers here but the 2 times I had chucking the 5th wasn't level. Once I leveled it out most of the chucking stopped. When I brought home my current 5th the chucking was so bad I thought the 5th was coming off. After adjusting the hitch height so the 5th was level it stopped. That is the first and cheapest place to start.

I'll certainly start there.
