I have a Anderson hitch. My Trailer is 36 feet and is pushing 10k it works good it is not as good maybe as some of the other wdh fot throwing weight forward for this big of a trailer but it does work well and no mess, light, easy to adjust I would say for a trailer at 8000 and lighter there is not a better hitch.

Have you found the Anderson to give a smoother ride than the normal wd style hitches?
Thanks,
Tim

Back in the day I have used bars and this one is much faster, no popping and grinding and no need for the mess of grease.

The last trip I measured from the trailer frame to the ground both in front and back. I found the trailer sits 1" lower in back that in the front. Next trip I'm not going to crank it up as much before I put on the spring bars to see if I can level it out.

Should the trailer be absolute level? I figured measuring off the frame is the only way to see if is level.

No, it should be nose down.
Level to nose high = sway.

Measure it without the WD engaged. That will tell you if the ball height is correct. It should be a few inches low in the front and the WD should bring it back up to where you are maybe only a couple inches low in front.

UPDATE IN REFERENCE TO A PART


In the owners manual it refers to a RETAINING BALL COLLAR. (Fig 6)

I did not have this item in my box when it came. I called the company and spoke to Dave who is one of the tech's was told that they have updated the retaining system and this item was no longer needed. I checked and see that there is a retaining ring that has taken it's place.

In case someone else orders this system I figured I would add this info in case you had the same Q. Dave also rememinded me that every part (no matter the reason) had a life time replacement warranty. Just give him a call. First in counter with customer service and liked what I saw.

Just a FYI
