RV Weight Distributing Hitch

When pulling your travel trailer does the steering on the tow vehicle ever feel loose and does not respond like it normally does? This can happen because there is too much tongue weight from the trailer pressing down on the hitch causing the front of your vehicle to lose traction, which in turn affects the steering. If you dont have a Weight Distribution Hitch you need to go talk to an RV dealer about getting one.

Weight distribution hitches are designed to distribute the trailers tongue weight to the axles on the tow vehicle and the axles on the trailer. If you already have a weight distribution hitch and you still have problems with the tow vehicle steering, it's probably not adjusted properly. Again, take it to an RV dealer and have it checked out.
